One of the ways we teach executive functioning strategies during Summer Trip Camp is through cooking. We teach that part of cooking is cleaning up so learning how to wash pans is interwoven into the lesson. This is about learning how to clean up after yourself (that requires several aspects of executive functioning).
 
Do we call it executive functioning?- No
Do we call it learning how to clean up?-No
 
We call it the “done” part of a sequence of steps that is used to teach executive functioning.
 
No talk about school work, homework, etc..
Yes to talk about learning how to make food for yourself because that’s developing independence 🙂
