Executive functioning is a critical component in learning and life success. Practical classroom activities that build executive functioning in young children will be presented. The "Building Brains and Futures" project in the city of Lethbridge has participated in a pilot of Dr. Robbin Gibb's (U of L Neuroscientist) executive functioning curriculum for young children. The curriculum has been implemented in a number of early childhood programs across the city of Lethbridge. This session will demonstrate activites from this curriculum that can be used on a daily basis within early childhood programs. A research component of the pilot revealed statistically significant growth in the executive functioning of young children that were exposed to these activities on a daily basis.
