The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of lessons and activities on self-management skills to elementary students ranging from the ages of nine to ten years old. Involved in this study, there will be seventeen fourth grade students completing short lessons and activities on self-management skills two times a week. Each lesson and activity will take a total of about twenty minutes. Before beginning the study, students will take a self-assessment survey regarding their self-management skills in class. The self-management survey will include how well students believe they are able to successfully regulate their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations. Students will take the same survey at the conclusion of the study to determine if they felt their self-management skills have improved throughout the course of the study. Student’s self-management skills will be observed and recorded during self-management activities, as well as throughout the school day. I predict that at the end of this study, students' abilities to regulate their emotions, thoughts and behaviors in different situations will improve.
