This class is a link between the elementary setting and safety of one desk, one teacher, one classroom, to the rigor of several teachers and classroom transitions. We will build skills to manage the tricky middle school life of a tween from scholastic success to the sometimes emotional rollercoaster of the middle school social life.
Lessons will be structured for the 1st half of the class and can be extended if time allows with discussions. Depending on the week and work load in other classes, we will use the second half of class to study for tests or work on projects that are due. BUT...students should not expect this time nor will it be used as an individual study hall. Because our 6th graders will be staying together for the majority of their classes, with the exception of English and Math, class study time will be structured around the needs of the week as a group.
