UPDATE: SERIES NAME CHANGE

Due to the confusion caused by the use of the word "flexible" in the names of many of our products, The Incredible Flexible You series name has changed to We Thinkers!. The Incredible Flexible You Volume 1, has been renamed to We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers. No content has changes in Volume 1, only the series name has changed. Volume 2 is named We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers.

 

Please Note: Right now we are in the process of updating the series name on the products in the Volume 1 Deluxe Package. Therefore, the package may contain some products with the series name The Incredible Flexible You, and others with the series name We Thinkers!. Thank you for being "flexible" as we work through this name change! 

 

We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers is an engaging Social Thinking educational series that combines a social learning framework used in schools across the U.S. with music and dramatic play activities that will appeal to early learners. Play is the learning environment of young children, and this curriculum capitalizes on this idea! The We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers Deluxe Set includes the five storybook set, curriculum book, The Incredible Flexible You music CD, and a free tote bag.

 

Volume 2, Social Problem Solvers, builds off of the concepts taught in Volume 1 and explores more advanced Social Thinking concepts and vocabulary such as: Hidden Rules and Expected and Unexpected Behaviors, Smart Guess, Flexible and Stuck Thinking, Size of the Problem, and Sharing an Imagination. However, because the teaching and learning is sequential it is important that Volume 1 be used before moving to Volume 2.
