This self-control lesson is for teaching students about some of the most important executive functioning skills: coping skills, choosing where to give attention, and thinking before acting. The self-control activities give students meaningful opportunities to reflect on what self-control looks like and how they use it in their own lives.


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!
  • It is recommended for students in 3rd-5th grades, but you know your students’ developmental levels and capabilities best
