We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers is the second volume in Social Thinking’s premier social-emotional learning series for ages 4-7. The curricula in this series help children advance social competencies that are fundamental to their development and impact each child’s social and academic achievement for years to come.
We Thinkers! Volume 2 enables teachers, clinicians, and parents to teach executive functioning and problem solving while building on the concepts introduced in We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers. The five Social Thinking concepts explored in Volume 2 are: figuring out hidden rules and expected and unexpected behavior, making a smart guess, having flexible versus stuck thinking, matching the size of your reaction to the size of the problem, and sharing an imagination. This set includes five storybooks, an expanded curriculum, a tote bag, and a book that introduces our groundbreaking Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving (GPS) Play Scale, observation and scoring tools, and related differentiated play activities. There is a LOT to teach in this curriculum set. We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers gets rave reviews from children, parents and professionals alike!
