Superflex Takes on Brain Eater
Superflex Takes on Brain Eater focuses on one of the social cognitive challenges seen most often in students, distractibility, with strategies on how to stay on track with every day activities like getting ready for school and listening in class! The engaging comic book is the third in the Superflex series designed to help children learn more about their own social behavior and strategies to regulate it…
Superflex, our Social Thinking superhero, helps teach elementary school students how they can use strategies to conquer their own Brain, not quite so flexible Team of Unthinkables. Through this humorous and delightful comic book, students are encouraged to think about thinking and what they can do to self-regulate some of their own wayward thoughts and behaviors.
Superflex, the comic books, are part of a series that begins with You Are a Social Detective, followed by Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum where teachers and parents are encouraged to set up their own Superflex Academy. By teaching students to explore the differences between Superflex and a motley crew of the Team of Unthinkables such as Rock Brain, Brain Eater, and Body Snatcher, they can better develop self-awareness and self-monitoring of their own behavior, eventually allowing them to participate in the Superflex Academy Graduation Party. Complete with charming illustrations, practical worksheets and many, many useful lessons, this curriculum is becoming an effective tool for working with our elementary school students with social learning challenges.
To be used effectively, parents and educators need to start at the beginning, introduce core concepts, and work through the Superflex curriculum before sharing this comic book (or others to follow) with children. Books should be introduced in this order:
1. You Are a Social Detective!
2. Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum
3. Superflex Takes on Rock Brain and the Team of Unthinkables (packaged with the Superflex Curriculum book)
Once these three books have been used with a child or class, adults are free to move on to any of the individual Unthinkables books produced to date, in any order that meets the child’s social thinking challenges or interests:
• Superflex Takes on Glassman and the Team of Unthinkables
• Superflex Takes on Brain Eater and the Team of Unthinkables
Suitable for 3rd – 5th Grade
