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.

About the Author: Lauren Rowello is a homeschooling educator and the cofounder of a nontraditional schooling initiative in the Philadelphia area. Lauren aims to make unconventional approaches to education more accessible for marginalized learners, including those with disabilities, who often lack support and resources in both conventional and unconventional learning spaces.

Lauren was diagnosed as autistic in adulthood. Because of their late diagnosis, they understand what it's like to have school-related challenges that go largely unnoticed and unaddressed. That experience made Lauren especially passionate about developing opportunities that are affirming and empowering for neurodivergent learners--including their own kids--and other students who struggle with executive functioning.

Lauren is also an award-winning journalist whose work has been featured in a variety of national publications. Their writing explores themes of identity, mental health, relationships, and a wide scope of justice issues and current events.
