Advice to Incoming Seventh Graders

This post is going to be about seventh grade and what to expect. I will tell you what you should and what you shouldn’t do. I hope this is helpful to you.

Homework: Don’t wait until the last second to do your homework! You should always do your homework during wildcat time or if you have free class time. You may find that if you do your homework in school, it gets rid of one thing for you to do after school so that you can do other things. There is also less pressure on you.

Studying/ Tests: You should always study for a test even if you think you know everything. There will most likely be something you don’t know. You should never just “wing it” on a test just because you don’t want to study. A good way to study is by going over your class notes and also redoing the problems you got wrong on your homework. Flashcards are a great way to study vocabulary. Another way to study is by going on your teacher’s website and do the quizlet that they have made. Also, if you are having trouble in class, you should ask your teacher if you can come in for tutoring.

You shouldn’t stress about seventh grade. Everyone told me that it was going to be the hardest grade and that I would have a bunch of homework. I was really nervous but now, I realized I didn’t really have to stress about seventh grade. As long as you do your homework, study, turn in your papers on time, you’ll do fine.
