Summary

Summary

How can I help my child in math if I don't understand the problems myself? I know my child is old enough to take responsibility for her own schoolwork, but she seems more disorganized than ever. What can I do? What can I do to make sure my child is prepared for middle school and beyond? When your child entered sixth grade, you may have breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that you no longer needed to coach your child in basic reading and math skills. But parental involvement is more important than ever for the sixth grader. Academics are getting tougher. Expectations are higher. Children who have glided through school up until now may run into difficulties. A good reader begins to groan when given a reading assignment. A fine math student dissolves into tears over a sheet of division problems. Don't worry. How Is My Sixth Grader Doing in School? will help you find out what your child knows, what your child needs to know, and how to work with your child to ensure success in school.
