When my son started school, I was worried about many things. Would my son make friends? Would we be able to handle the morning routine? What did homework look like for little ones? Once we learned about executive function skills, we were more aware of an educational perspective that would help my son succeed. Here is how executive function skills can help your child!
Executive function skills are what help us plan, focus, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks. Primrose Schools helps show your child how to develop these skills and succeed. Let’s talk about executive function skills and how we can make sure our children succeed at school!
Teamwork: Learning teamwork is important for a young child. Primrose Schools suggests playdates, playing iSpy, or helping parents with chores. We encouraged teamwork with our son by enrolling him in basketball and tee ball at a young age.
Adaptability: Interactive play is important, and the right learning environment can help!
Critical Thinking: This is where it is important to ask open-ended questions with your child. Let them think, explore their imagination, and learn!
Problem-solving: One way to teach problem-solving is with scavenger hunts! My son loves these! They help create a sense of independence, too.
Self-control: A fun way to introduce the concept of self-control is with board games or a “freeze” dance! Teach your little ones how to create a sense of being in control of their actions with this tip.
Working Memory: Reading out loud helps working memory skills along with doing chores together!
