If you're worried about how you're doing, I'd definitely recommend talking to your teacher(s) about how you're doing. They're the experts, and they'll be able to give you some tips on what to do, if it would help you.

Obviously we all want to do as well as we possibly can, but I'd have to say two things, the first of which is that you're still relatively young. Grades later on count a lot more, so whilst it's important to get the fundamentals now, it's not something to stress about too much at this stage. Secondly, because of this, there's plenty of time to approve. So, it's not necessarily especially bad if you're not doing as well as you might want to be; what would be bad would be not trying to improve.

So, I'd recommend talking to a teacher, and you can certainly get feedback (it's always good to improve as much as possible anyway - trust me, it makes things easier later on, even for me only 3 years on) but please don't be too hard on yourself or be too stressed about it, okay?

Skittlify me up...

I agree with Adam. You should talk to your teachers if your worried and see what you need to approve on and how you can get your grades up if you are in danger of failing. Sixth grade is important just like any other grade but the grades don't really matter when it comes to collage and stuff they look at your 9th, 10th, and 11th grade grades.

The good thing is it sounds like you want to improve which is really good. So just try your best ask for help when you don't understand something, maybe ask if you can stay after class and have the teacher help you. But definitely talk to your teacher.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
