Developing Self-Regulation in Kindergarten: Can We Keep All the Crickets in the Basket?
Bodrova, Elena; Leong, Deborah
Young Children, v63 n2 p56-58 Mar 2008
Self-regulation involves to the ability to both control one's impulses and engage in a particular behavior on demand. It is a skill used not just in social interactions (emotional self-regulation) but in thinking (cognitive self-regulation) as well. Research shows that children's self-regulation behaviors in the early years predict their school achievement in reading and mathematics better than IQ scores. The authors suggest a number of ways kindergarten teachers can promote children's development of this important skill.
