Holcomb Elementary School
Make a "Mean Jean" Superflex comic book!
Fifth grade teacher Morgan Bulson, who teaches at Holcomb Elementary in Oregon City, OR, uses Superflex with her students to help improve understanding of emotions and actions as well as improve communication. After using Superflex for some time, her class found the Unthinkable Mean Jean was most applicable to them, but soon realized Social Thinking's Superflex team has yet to write a comic book for this Unthinkable. Thus, Bulson and her class took it upon themselves to make one! Here is what she sent us:
Our long awaited Superflex takes on Mean Jean (and Glassman) book is complete! It's not perfect but the kids are so proud of their work! We even wrote a persuasive writing piece after the completion of the book to explain why we think people should read our book. One student of mine (the one I mentioned before who has particular difficulties with Mean Jean) even read it aloud to a kindergarten student who was also having some Mean Jean invasions! She was so proud when he said "again, again!"
The Unthinkables and strategies listed above are not creations of, nor have been edited by the Social Thinking team. If you would like to learn more about Social Thinking's Superflex Curriculum, please click here.
