My 8th graders are actually 7th graders taking 8th grade math. I do see some huge changes in my 7th graders over the course of the year. I teach in a junior high, so they are coming from 6th grade in elementary school. The first few days of school are pretty stressful for them as they adjust to having so many different teachers and a locker for the first time. After the first few weeks, they start to settle in, and by the end of the year they are old pros! Most 7th graders really mature a lot over the school year. It’s always cool to see that happen. Last year was a really good one. We had many super kind students who worked hard and (hopefully) learned a lot!
I hope your summer is off to a good start!
