Top Signs of Trouble in Sixth Grade
For many sixth-graders, the transition to middle school can be difficult because they have to adjust to a new and much larger school, new friends, and several teachers. Frequently, their report-card grades drop because they are now being compared to new groups of students from other elementary schools.
Your child may have trouble if he's not able to:
- Determine when he needs help and know how to get it.
- Handle different test formats (essay, short answer, multiple choice, true-false).
- Study efficiently.
- Resist drug and alcohol experimentation.
- Demonstrate a genuine interest in school and learning.
