Hi Everyone - I was just curious to hear from other teachers who are using the elementary and middle school POW's with their sixth grade classes. I am finding that all but my very top students are extremely frustrated by these types of problems. I'd like to know if the weaknesses that I am seeing in reading, number sense, and computation are just with my kids or if others are seeing the same weaknesses. I understand the extra challenges that the middle school problems present because of the higher grade level audience, but there are many problems suitable for average sixth graders. I guess I am asking if teachers could share the ability level of those sixth grade students who are submitting on a regular basis and if they could share some of their personal experiences with any sixth grade students who participate in the POW program.
