Preschoolers Are Ready for Math Learning
Build Math and Executive Function Skills at the Same Time
Executive function skills, or EF, begin to develop in early childhood, and we continue to use EF throughout life. EF includes the ability to follow instructions to complete a task, stay focused despite distractions, and successfully switch between tasks. Research shows that:
- EF supports problem-solving, which in turn supports the development of math skills.
- Both EF and math skills are linked to a wide range of important academic outcomes.
A set of resources designed to boost teacher knowledge and confidence in supporting the development of math and executive function skills.
Brief but mighty ideas to grow math and executive function skills during informal moments of transition, including setup and line up.
