SMARTS ELEMENTARY
EXECUTIVE FUNCTION CURRICULUM – GRADES 2-5

SMARTS Elementary is a comprehensive EF curriculum for grades 2-5. It offers foundational executive function strategies that promote self-confidence, resilience, and academic success.

SMARTS Elementary provides elementary grade teachers with the tools necessary to teach executive function processes. Each unit addresses an area of executive function crucial for success in school and life:

  • Unit 1: Introduction to Executive Function Strategies
  • Unit 2: Goal Setting
  • Unit 3: Thinking Flexibly
  • Unit 4: Organizing and Prioritizing Materials and Time
  • Unit 5: Organizing and Prioritizing Information
  • Unit 6: Remembering (memorizing)
  • Unit 7: Self-monitoring and Self-checking

Using EF strategies, students develop the self-understanding to know which strategies work best for them, as well as why, where, when, and how to use those strategies to complete their work. The SMARTS Elementary curriculum can be used in general education classrooms, special education classrooms, after school programs, and learning centers.

Since each lesson is divided into four 20-minute sessions, teachers have the flexibility to integrate lessons across a range of subjects and tasks, from reading, writing, and math, to time management, perspective taking, and conflict resolution.

30 lesson plans that give you the flexibility to teach only what you and your students need. Integrate the lessons into academic instruction, or use as a standalone executive function curriculum. The choice is yours.

EACH LESSON COMES WITH:

  • A comprehensive lesson plan
