We Thinkers! Volume 1 Extra Storybook Set
This set of storybooks is meant to supplement the We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers Curriculum Package; these books are NOT intended to be used as stand-alone teaching tools and they do NOT include teaching materials. All teaching materials are presented in the Volume 1 curriculum book.
The set of five storybooks is included in the We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers Curriculum Package, and is sold separately on this page. Remember, the storybooks are not intended to be used as stand-alone teaching tools, but extra sets of storybooks can help further engage students if you’re teaching the Volume 1 curriculum to a class or therapy group. They’re also a great resource for parents of children working on the concepts in school or therapy to continue the learning at home.
Through the adventures of four likable characters—Evan, Ellie, Jesse, and Molly—children are introduced to and learn about complex social concepts in a language they can understand. Readers journey along with the characters as their adventures unfold in kid-friendly settings that mirror children’s experiences and inspire their imaginations: in the classroom, on a farm, underwater in the ocean, in outer space, and at the zoo. The Volume 1 storybooks and curriculum can be used to help children develop better self awareness and perspective taking when sharing space or interacting with others. Colorful illustrations and playful storybook adventures ignite curiosity and imagination to make learning these five Social Thinking concepts irresistibly fun:
Thinking Thoughts and Feeling Feelings (Classroom Adventure)
The Group Plan (Adventure on the Farm)
Thinking with Your Eyes (Adventure in Space)
Body in the Group (Ocean Adventure)
Whole Body Listening (Zoo Adventure)
Playful Stop and Notice, Stop and Discuss, and Stop and Do icons in the storybooks help the interventionist structure reading/teaching the concepts. (Explanation of the teaching moments and related activities are detailed in the Volume 1 curriculum.)
The stories and learning continue with deeper social concepts and activities in Volume 2: Social Problem Solvers Deluxe Package. Teaching is sequential across this early learner series, so be sure to work through the concepts, stories, and lesson units in Volume 1 before using the Volume 2!
