Strong executive functioning skills are essential in academic settings, but they are equally as necessary for everyday living. Thinking Organized seeks to teach organizational strategies that will help students learn to focus on being more organized in school and in life. Summer gives parents a great opportunity to model and practice these skills with their children in a real-life context, when academics are not necessarily the primary concern. Many kids attend day camp for sports or other activities in which they have equipment and supplies. This is the perfect set-up for practicing material organization! In addition, students often have chores to complete around the house or many fun activities to manage. Conveniently, this is a fantastic time to practice time management skills. Take a look at our ideas in order to get the most out of practicing executive functioning skills with your children this summer.
