Penny the Perspective Detective features Penny and her friends as they navigate various social situations. This material includes 24 different social scenarios that help children identify how others feel and potential solutions to those feelings.
The pages of this material are broken into half-sheets with a social scenario on top and the opportunity to think about each character’s feelings on the bottom. Clinicians may use the lines below each magnifying glass to encourage written bullet points expressing each character’s feelings. This material is also perfect for engaging in back-and-forth conversation about each situation and why characters feel the way they do.
This activity may be used in individual or small/large group settings.
This activity is also accompanied by a helpful visual image that outlines how a child can use whole-body listening to better understand the thoughts and feelings of others.
TMV Customers may also purchase Pete the Perspective Detective and Penny and Pete the Perspective Detectives Collection.
This was a very easy set-up for an in-depth activity that my clients really enjoyed. Whole body listening can sometimes be tricky, but this really engaged my clients into our therapy session. The magnifying glass was a fun piece that excited the kids – they felt like true detectives! Very creative and fun activity.
