Executive functions are some of the most important mental skills we need in order to get things done throughout our lives. Executive function skills help us control our impulses, filter distractions, plan and prioritize tasks, and remember instructions. We are not born with these skills, but every child has the potential to develop them, beginning in early childhood! In this interactive edWebinar, we’ll explore the many ways in which developmentally appropriate, participatory, and enjoyable music and movement activities can naturally support young children’s development of important self-regulation and executive function skills, including attention control, working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control.

Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of the importance of executive functions to school and life success and how and why developmentally appropriate music and movement activities support children’s executive function and self-regulation skills in the early years. Educators, regardless of their own music skills or experience, will gain new, engaging, and developmentally appropriate musical tools that they can use in their work with young children to support their self-regulation and executive function skills. Recent research will also be explored. Come ready to learn and have some fun making music!

This edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-3 teachers, school leaders, and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
