  • Let’s sing a new song — it’s called "The NO Song." I’ll sing first, and then we can sing together.
  • Let’s sing the word “NO” over and over again to the tune of Frére Jacque. We’ll sing the first phrase quietly, the second phrase a little louder with our hands on our hips, the third phrase as loud as we can and pretend to have a tantrum, and sing the last phrase quietly again.
  • Sing it with me!
