Sixth-Grade Homeschool Curriculum and Lesson Plans
Most students in sixth grade are usually 11-years-old or 12-years-old. In general, by the end of sixth grade, students should have good organization skills and be able to work independently. They should possess more advanced math skills such as place value and decimal work up to the hundredths place. In this crucial grade, they should write clearly, tell a story, provide detailed information, and back up their opinions on the language arts front.
