There really aren't words for how excited I am about this SEL curriculum for elementary learners. And it all started because of YOU. I'll explain 🥰 Back in January, I released a SEL curriculum for older kids. I spent months of research and hard work on it. It truly is amazing. When I listed it in my store, I got an unexpected response, though. Yes, many of you told me you loved it. But many of you told me that you needed one for younger kids. I'm not going to lie. After spending months on a huge curriculum, I wasn't sure I wanted to commit to that again. But then, I thought about the kids. ALL kids should have access to these skills. And I thought about all of you. All teachers should feel comfortable teaching these skills, too! So, by just a quick change of mindset I decided to create this amazing curriculum. And I'm so glad I did. So, THANK YOU! I think the moral of my story is always be open to new ideas. You don't have to say yes to everything, but at least be open minded. You never know where a new idea will bring you 💓 And just a reminder that I'm always here for your feedback and suggestions. 🥰 feel free to PM me or email anytime!

Hey, friends! I'm just checking in with this really important reminder. Executive functioning skills are life skills! These are skills we use all the time like: 📁 Planning ⏱️ Time management 📘 Organization 🚦Self-control 👀 Attention ✏️ Task initiation 🧠 Flexibility 🏆 Perseverance These are skills we use whether we are working on a math test, planning for a long-term project, playing in a sports game, or just spending time with friends. Kids and young adults need to learn the skills for HOW to use these skills, though. So often, that means we need to teach them! And you don't have to be an expert with EF skills to teach them. As long as you are discussing and practicing them, you are working in the right direction! The good news is that I have tons of resources to help you teach and practice these skills. I'll add one of my favorite sets linked in my profile (since it is the sale and it's 25% off), but truly, I have so many resources and blog posts. Feel free to PM me or email me to let me help point you in the right direction! What are some EF skills that your learners struggle with? What are some strategies you use to work on them? #teachersknow https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Executive-Functioning-MEGA-Bundle-2612306
