Figuring Out the Size of the Problem
You’ve worked through the Superflex curriculum with your students and now you’re ready to dive deeper. This discounted two-book set featuring the Unthinkable Glassman and Thinkable Kool Q. Cumber explores one of the social learning challenges we regularly see in our students—having big reactions to small problems! The lessons in these two books complement each other and they even share similar settings and characters to bridge the learning.
These engaging books are part of our Superflex series, which is designed to help children learn about their own and others’ thoughts and behaviours, and practice strategies for self-regulation across a variety of situations. As kids learn strategies to defeat the Unthinkables and unexpected behavior, they strengthen their flexible thinking and are better able to self-regulate in challenging times.
1. Superflex Takes on Glassman and the Team of Unthinkables
In this storybook, readers are introduced to the Unthinkable Glassman, who causes people to have large reactions to small problems. Kids learn how to figure out the size of the problem and the expected reaction size, and use calming self-talk and other superflexible strategies to find their Superflex inside and defeat Glassman! Buy it at a discount as part of the set, or individually.
2. Superflex and Kool Q. Cumber to the Rescue!
Complementing the teachings found in the book above, this illustrated storybook introduces readers to the Thinkable Kool Q. Cumber. Kool helps Social Town citizens stay calm when problems happen and use their strategies to figure out the size of a problem and the expected reaction size. Buy it at a discount as part of the set, or individually.
