Thinking with Your Eyes: Adventure in Space (storybook 3 of 10)
Blast off with the gang to an alien planet in outer space. In storybook 3 of the We Thinkers! Vol. 1 social emotional learning curriculum for ages 4-7, Molly, Evan, Jesse, and Ellie learn how to communicate with friendly aliens by thinking with their eyes since they don’t speak Bleep! Bleep! Bloop! They quickly learn that our eyes are like arrows that point to what we are looking at and probably thinking about, too. They figure out what the aliens might be thinking and feeling by using their eyes to follow what the alien’s eyes are pointed toward and the expression on its face. It’s so much fun to figure out what’s going on in a situation, communicate, and make new friends—all by using our eyes! Continue building on this important social concept with the fundamental concepts taught in storybooks 4-10, which align with the corresponding teaching units within the related curriculum. Best practice: teach these concepts in order, starting with storybook 1 of 10, and using the corresponding curriculum.
