Students will engage in fun activities as they learn and practice skills related to executive functioning. We will focus on raising awareness and strategies for:

Self-regulation
Organization
Flexibility
Recognizing feelings related to challenges
Task completion

Students will learn the acronym CHIPS as a way to remember how they can use their skills:

C – can I restate directions?

H – how long will it take to complete this task?

I – I’ve got the materials I need

P – I will persist to complete this task

S – I can self-regulate

Students will end the week, applying the skills we’ve targeted, in a culminating activity. This could be making a game, cookies or something else that fits the students’ interests!
