The best thing about sixth grade is...... everything!!! You have more freedom, lockers, and electives! The lunches are a lot better, too. You also have a whole new schedule and have to switch classes every period, instead of just having one teacher all day. It's tough but a lot more exciting! You have a lot more homework and assignments to keep up with since you have a lot more classes, but if you keep up with your work and don't procrastinate, you can finish all of it in time. You also have a better chance to have a class with one of your friends. In elementary school, I was never in the same class with my best friend. This year, I have two classes with her!!! Once you get into sixth grade, you just feel older. You feel more mature. You feel like you can do anything you want to do.
