Seventh grade is a difficult year. You experience a sudden increase in homework and the courses also get difficult as time progresses. So for the last (graded) blog post of the year, I have compiled a list of useful tips to keep in your mind during your seventh grade year.
- Stay well organized:
Throughout seventh grade, you will be experiencing a larger amount of homework. So a good way to be able to turn in your homework on time is to have everything well organized. Keep things in separate folders or binders and label everything. Even though this may seem like a big waste of time and energy, it will slowly repay you overtime. Keeping a well organized binder will enable you to find homework and worksheets without much of a hassle.
- Keep your locker organized:
Similar to keeping your binder neat and well organized, keeping your locker organized and secured is just as important. Having random things in your locker (such as old sandwiches) attracts unwanted bugs (such as ants and cockroaches) and can make a mess. Avoid leaving food in your locker over the weekends and clean out your locker every few months.
- Turn in your homework:
Even though homework grades are only 10% (give or take some percentage) of your grade, they are really important. Homework is your skill assessment after a lesson and helps you study for quizzes and tests. Getting zeros on homework will eventually affect your grade because the percentages pile up and total to almost a major. So do your homework!!! It’s essential to getting straight A’s and maintaining good grades.
Seventh grade can be either a blast to you, or may seem really difficult. Whatever it is, just keep everything well organized and participate in class. You won’t regret it!
