Besides being the creators of the Not-So Secret Society, we’re parents. We deal with the same hurdles you do every day. We understand your stress because ours is so similar. We know that most days it would be easier to run a marathon rather than convincing your child to put on their shoes. Trust us, we get it.
We have set out to create a series that parents can enjoy with their children. That’s not always the easiest thing, but we really want you to have as much fun reading this as your kids do.
We have created a series of activities for you and your kids to enjoy together. In addition to this guide you will find twenty five more activities on the website and they are free for you to use.
If you and your kids enjoy them — and we know they will — let us know. We are looking for feedback and stories that we can share with our growing community. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell your fellow parents and get them involved. Show us your ideas on our Facebook and Instagram channels by tagging us at @TeamNS3.
Our goal with The Not-So Secret Society is to foster a love of reading in young people and also promote and encourage:
Embracing of Differences – the series will teach and stress tolerance and inclusion without ever feeling like a lesson.
Spirit of Adventure – the excitement of having good old-fashioned fun.
Sense of Collaboration – it’s essential to stress to young people that working with others is more rewarding and fulfilling.
A Willingness to Explore & Learn – having kids enjoy new experiences and what different subjects offer; this series proves that kids can learn everywhere and want to learn more.
Respect for Adults – the parents and adult characters are all important and unique and there is a two-way street of respect throughout the series.
We hope that you enjoy the book and that these activities will enhance your reading experience of The Not-So Secret Society with the kids in your life.
Working in education is the most rewarding job someone can have. It’s also terribly stressful. We understand! The NS3 creators worked in education for more than ten years each, in the K-12 environment and in universities.
Regardless of the level of student you’re working with — and each level presents its own set of challenges — good resources are important. Which is why we have created this series of lesson plans, activities, and assessments you can use to accompany the original graphic novel The Not-So Secret Society: Tale of the Gummy!
Even though we spent many years working in education, we worked with current teachers to develop these supplemental materials, assuring that they are relevant and aligned to current standards. Everything you need, including all handouts for the activities are included here for you to use.
Our goal with The Not-So Secret Society is to foster a love of reading in young people. We want educators to share their experiences using The Not-So Secret Society and our supplemental materials. Promote your lessons, plans, and ideas of your own on our Facebook and Instagram channels by tagging us at @TeamNS3.
We hope that you enjoy the book and that these lesson plans will enhance your students experience of The Not-So Secret Society inside and outside the classroom.
