We know that sharing books with young children helps them gain valuable early literacy skills like vocabulary, print awareness, and letter knowledge. However, it also helps them develop skills that experts say are a better predictor of success: executive function skills. Executive function, or “soft” skills, include social-emotional skills like self-regulation and taking on different perspectives, as well as accessing one’s working memory and more. In this interactive webinar, participants will learn what executive function is, why it’s important to learning and life success, and how it can be developed through shared story time experiences.
