I am switching grades from 8th down to 6th and am a little nervous. I am not sure what to expect and would like to hear about their personalities and work habits? I am so used to 8th graders and I have no idea how much difference their will be between the two grades. I want to start off the year strong and have them be responsible students by the end of the year so that they are successful in the upper grades. Other advice is of course always appreciated!! Thanks!!!
