This best-selling, five-book program teaches social behaviors and social language with a structured lesson format that reduces student anxiety and promotes learning.  Fun, interactive lessons target skills in sequencing, predicting, question-answering, and processing verbal information.  

There are five programs in the set: Community, Family, Friends, Home, and School.  Each program includes eight stories (a total of 40 stories) with:

  • four full-color, 8 1/2" x 11" pictures to tell each story (32 story sequence pictures for each program).
  • four large-print sentence strips per story that students match to the correct illustrations (32 sentence strips for each program).
  • question flash cards and wrong/right cards for students to learn ways to act in social situations.
  • a teacher manual with complete lesson plans and teaching techniques designed to engage students in learning.  The manual includes
    - ready-to-use lists of yes/no, wh-, and how questions for each story
    - teaching suggestions
    - a pocket-size version of each story
    - a list of easy-to-find props for role-playing each story sequence
    - a progress chart

Each lesson follows the same two-day routine and can be used with one student, a small group, or an entire class.  Matt and Molly are the main characters of every story, so students begin to consider them good friends as they progress through each lesson. 

Day one routine is:

  • sing the Matt and Molly theme song
  • introduce the story
