Chalk Talk: Creative Ways to Develop Executive Function Skills
Executive function skills involve complex deliberations of math, reasoning, judgment, and logic. These are skills that adults use in decision-making, finances, relationships, and advanced studies. Interestingly enough, these life skills can be taught and encouraged through cooking. Cooking involves preparation, time management, budgeting, following recipes, mathematics, science, reading, and fine motor skills. For a student of any age, it can be helpful to involve them in an appropriate way in the kitchen whether that is shopping, measuring, mixing, or arranging food to look good on a plate. Remember to supervise them when around hot surfaces and sharp objects though!
