The Lower Campus Positive Engagement team would like to share this article on executive functioning skills. The article is titled "Enhancing and Practicing Executive Function Skills with Children from Infancy to Adolescence" and it's from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. We liked that this article provides practical strategies for teaching and strengthening the critical executive functioning and self-regulation skills to different age groups (ages 3-5, 5-7, 7-12). Some activities suggested include activities our children are already engaged in, such as card games, jumping rope, dancing, meditation, sports, and theater. The activities represent a sample of the many things children enjoy that can support healthy development. We hope you find the ideas useful to you and your family this summer. Click here!
