About The Book
Bring executive function into the elementary classroom or homeschool learning environment with this friendly resource book packed with tips and activities for teaching young students important self-management skills and building their confidence.
Executive functioning skills refer to a person’s aptitude for planning and engaging in tasks that require problem-solving, flexible thinking, and self-discipline. People use executive function skills, from learning new academic concepts to caring for our bodies and nurturing relationships, every day. In the elementary classroom, young students who struggle with developing these skills can often feel isolated, which can ultimately impede their learning progress.
In Teaching Executive Function in the K–5 Classroom, you will first learn how to identify executive function challenges in the classroom. Then, you’ll dive into practical tools and new methods for addressing specific concerns for struggling students, and discover how to implement tangible classroom activities, exercises, and strategies that support skill building, including:
- Planning and meeting personal goals
- Following instructions
- Accessing short-term memory
- Organizing and completing tasks
- Managing time
- Working independently
- Staying motivated
- Maintaining relationships
- And more!
Teaching Executive Function in the K–5 Classroom is the perfect resource for educators looking to cultivate meaningful changes and promote long-term success for all students.
