Sixth Grade Guidance
Sixth grade is a big year!
The students begin to develop life-long trends, and we feel it is very important that we help them to develop good skills in a variety of areas. Listed below is a brief summary of some of the more important areas.
The students will be introduced to the three different learning styles and discover which style is best for them. It is so important that each child learns to recognize their learning style so they can better understand and develop that God-given style. Guidance will be given in how to best study in each style.
The three learning styles are: Auditory, Visual, and Tactile/Kinesthetic.
A vital skill that is taught in sixth grade is organization. Along the same line is the importance of learning how to create an appropriate study environment within the home. We will discuss ways to organize the book bags and study areas. Without developing this skill, transition into seventh grade will be much more difficult.
