I Have An Idea! Cooperative Play Scenarios

I Have An Idea! Is an interactive activity developed to enhance social emotional awareness. Four scenarios play out through task cards, puzzles and outcome cards, walking children through the process of incorporating others’ ideas into play. In each scenario, the child starts by playing alone. Another child joins in and add to play. Scenario cards work as social stories, outlining the situation. Children then piece together a visual puzzle based on the social story (reading skills are not necessary). Outcome cards detail the benefits of cooperative play and the enjoyment in incorporating others’ thoughts and ideas.
