Grow Your Brain! --Executive Functioning and Growth Mindset

Grow Your Brain!  is an exciting new class that teaches kids about two groups of essential skills they need not only for school but for life…Growth Mindset and Executive Functioning!  Growth Mindset is the concept that intelligence can be grown or developed with persistence, effort, and a focus on learning. When students believe that dedication and hard work can change their performance in school, they grow to become resilient, successful students. Executive Functioning skills are the ones kids need to organize, plan, initiate and follow through with tasks.  Students who forget assignments, are disorganized, have difficulty breaking down assignments or completing long-term assignments, have trouble focusing, and have difficulty with change often have weak executive functioning skills.  In Grow Your Brain! we will learn about perseverance, effort, motivation, determination, patience, practice, the brain’s plasticity, the difference between fixed and growth mindsets, goal-setting, accepting constructive criticism, a healthy view of mistakes, resiliency in the face of challenges, and self-talk.  We will also practice the listening, time management, working memory, planning, organizing, task initiation, metacognition, self-control, flexibility, sustained attention, and following directions.  This empowering class is also filled with fun games and activities.  Parents are invited for the last 5 minutes of each meeting to hear a synopsis of the lesson and receive handouts for reinforcement and practice at home.  The topics of each week will be tailored to the students’ needs, if possible. If a session is missed a free make-up session will be provided, limit one per child.  Number of participants is limited to 6.
