Helpful Resources
  • Is your child forgetful?  Does your student struggle with understanding the consequences of his/her actions? Is your kid’s bedroom a hot sloppy mess?  These are all skills associated with executive functioning!  The great news is that there are a variety of family games that can increase your child’s executive functioning in a fun, easy way!  Check out this article for more information: https://goo.gl/AXMQF2
  • Have you heard of GoNoodle?  This is a website that we use a TON in the classroom, especially on indoor recess days.  There are dozens of fun, silly, engaging exercise videos that are fantastic for those winter cabin fever days.  In addition to great gross motor games, there are learning videos, and social emotional videos designed to give kids ways to calm down and cope.  Parents need an account, but a great majority of the site is free!  
  • Have you heard Prodigy Math?  It is an incredibly engaging online fantasy based math game made for elementary students.  Kids are crazy about it, I’ve known students who prefer it to Minecraft.  Parents need an account, and most of the site is free.  If you’re looking for a way to add to your at-home math practice, this could be a great way to go!  Check it out! - https://www.prodigygame.com
