8th grade is another milestone year - the end of middle school. By this age you should start to see more social and emotional maturing. Children are better able to plan out a course of action on their own and have better abilities to communicate their plans and ideas. Academically, students are firming up the educational foundation on which the high school years will be built. It is appropriate for students of this age to be completing projects independently and in an organized fashion. Reading continues to become more and more fluent as students understand more about the written language. Students should have a good foundation in the understanding of words, prefixes and suffixes (including those of greek and latin roots). In math students should have a solid understanding of pre-algebraic concepts, fractions, decimals, percentages and all the mathematical operations. Students should be able to think through and apply the scientific method to science questions and experiments.
