We again talked about an anchor and how it helps a ship and can help us when our mind wanders off the topic of our attention. Many connected our Social Thinking Unthinkable 'Braineater' ( Master of Distraction) to the idea that the anchor could be used as a strategy when they were distracted in class. We then practice the 5 Star Count breathing and shared what they noticed. They noticed their bodies felt - 'calm', 'peaceful', 'rested' etc. One boy shared his thoughts were gone.
The Notebook was completed and we headed off to the small quiet room with our stars to use the Emwaves for the first time . The boys were able to hold it correctly and sit for 3 minutes. We ended this first day with a sharing about how they felt, what they noticed and questions.
