We spent a lot of time talking about Rock Brain this week. Rock Brain is an Unthinkable and he makes us get stuck on certain ideas or thoughts. We went back tthrough the story and identied where Rock Brain was taking over and the Superflex strategy that was recommended by Superflex. The strategy that Superflex said to use was "Do my homework first, so maybe mom will be happy and give me video game time later". The kids were amazed to find out that the advice was also Habit #3: Put first things first! It was so cool to see them come to this realization and help them understand that all of these habits and ideas work together! We also watched a video of the book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. The kids thought it was so funny because the bird eventually gets upset or "crazy". We talked about how having Rock Brain can make your brain and body feel out of control, just like the Pigeon's. I have attached the video so you can watch it with your kids (or read the book) and have them teach you about Rock Brain! Have an awesome spring break!
