Easing the Big Shift to Middle School

Easing the Big Shift to Middle School

Easing the Big Shift to Middle School

The move from elementary to middle school is a significant leap. Students say “goodbye” to having one classroom for every subject and “hello” to multiple teachers, different instruction approaches, and a lot more homework!

  • The demands of executive function skills increase exponentially.
  • Organization and planning skills are essential for a smooth transition.
  • Effective routines need to be established quickly.

Mastering Middle School from SOS4Students is an intensive, master workshop that prepares and teaches incoming 6th graders everything they need to know for a successful transition.
