Transitioning to 6th grade can be a nerve-racking experience for both student and parent, particularly in navigating the change from a few teachers to many. There are lots of papers, assignments and projects to keep track of. There are daily decisions to be made and things to remember. Be ready for the change by arming yourself early with organizational strategies designed to help manage school materials and assignments without undue stress.
