This executive functioning lesson is for teaching students about planning skills: organization, time management, task initiation and completion, and goal-setting. The focus is on developing self-awareness on how these skills are used to help us be successful. This topic can easily turn into a boring lecture, but the time management activities make it much more fun!


It was designed as a tier 1 classroom social emotional learning lesson (vs. an intervention) and works as a standalone lesson, or as part of an executive functioning unit.

Who is this resource for?

  • School counselors, school social workers, classroom teachers – anyone delivering SEL lessons!
