Learning impulse control is important for children. Author and educator Bryan Smith has developed four excellent activities to accompany the storybook What Were You Thinking?. These worksheets are designed to remind children the steps to managing their impulses through writing prompts, drawing, and discussion questions.

Four Downloadable PDF Activities include:

    • I'm prepared for Next Time
    • Time to Be Funny or Not?
    • What are the Steps?
    • Create a Better Option

What Were You Thinking? is part of the Executive FUNction series and is recommended for these activities.

Also available is the colorful, downloadable Impulse Control Poster that can be displayed in classrooms, hallways, the cafeteria, and other common areas within your school.
