Use these colorful Superflex stickers at home, at school, or on the go! These stickers are to be used in association with lessons from Superflex… A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum.
Superflex and the Team of Thinkables are within each of us and give us powers to figure out how to adapt our behavior based on what’s going on in different situations. Use Thinkable Stickers to:
- Encourage a social learner to call on the powers of their Superflex
- Each Thinkable adds to one’s overall Superflexible thinking providing extra “power”
- Acknowledge success when a social learner uses the powers of a specific Thinkable or their own personal Superflex, in general.
The Unthinkables provide specific powers to try and defeat a person’s Superflex along with the powers of various Thinkables. Use Unthinkables stickers to:
- Build social self-awareness by encouraging a social learner to keep an eye out for a specific or team of Unthinkables that is trying to invade the child’s brain.
- Encourage social leaders to use specific strategies to minimize the powers of an Unthinkables. For example, they can put stickers on a defeat sheet to show they are working hard to defeat a specific Unthinkable or Team of Unthinkables.
- Avoid accidentally reinforcing a child by giving them a sticker representing an Unthinkable when they are struggling to produce desired behaviors.
Avoid using the Unthinkable stickers to punish a social learner when their brain is invaded by an Unthinkable!
Key concepts explored in this series: Superflex curriculum, You Are a Social Detective, PBIS & RTI, self-regulation, social awareness.
This series is all about ensuring fidelity when using two of our key teaching materials, the award-winning You Are a Social Detective! and Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum. The purpose of You Are a Social Detective! is to foster social pragmatic understanding using Social Thinking Vocabulary as kids learn to be social observers, or “social detectives.” The purpose of the Superflex curriculum (featuring our superhero, Superflex) is to help students develop their social thinking to improve self-awareness, self-monitoring and, ultimately, self-regulation. Though presented in a kid-friendly format, the teaching behind the playfulness has a scope and sequence that require time and thought on the part of the professional.
We will also share tips on how to adapt these teaching materials for early learners as well as for tweens and teens who have outgrown the cartoon hero teaching approach. Additionally, we’ll explore how all this information dovetails with educational standards, social-emotional learning, Response to Intervention (RTI), and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
Why We Created This Series:
We created this series because we realized some professionals were not recognizing the depth, complexity, and developmental appropriateness embedded in some of our teaching materials, particularly Social Detective and Superflex. The result was that some students were becoming more dysregulated rather than learning self-regulation!
Each module in this series encourages awareness of a student’s developmental level while sharing best teaching practices for You Are a Social Detective!, Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum, and other related Social Thinking products. We describe how to teach these materials and elements of the broader Social Thinking Methodology with fidelity based on common questions we receive and our observations of where more clarity is needed.
Content Disclosure: This series does not teach about any other methodologies or programs aside from the Social Thinking Methodology.
*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social thinking, skills, and competencies.
