20 Activities To Improve Executive Function

  • Do you imagine walking them through what their attention cycle is and how to “coach” their brains to recognize when they “Drift”?
  • Do you imagine helping them sequence the steps to completing their morning routines?
  • Do you imagine having “Cognitive Conversations” about what executive functions are and when students use them?
  • Do you imagine bouncing a playground ball to help children encode their phonics?

Let’s explore activities, videos, books, and research to help you build your toolkit.
