Mrs. DeLarm's 5th Grade

Families:
We had so much fun at camp. We had 9 classes while there, and the temperatures moved about so much that everyone was fine (many layers during our Survival Class and the Night Hike, but shorts and short sleeves while canoeing and hiking!). We took a lot of pictures. Thanks for sharing your kids!

Last week we were busy learning about the Mayans in CKLA, a lot of Aspire testing, and of course camp. This week in CKLA we will be learning about the Incas, and doing a long write about camp. In Math, we finished our Multiplication/Division chapter, and are now starting Fractions. We didn't meet last week for Social Studies due to the testing. This week we will be working on projects to compare/contrast the 3 ancient civilizations from CKLA. In Novels, the students are reading "Esperanza Rising". In Science, they have started learning about weather.

Conferences: I'll be sending home your conference time this week. Please confirm right away so I can move it if needed. Students are very welcome to come to the conference: good for them to be celebrated in front of you, as well as us all hearing the same thing about next goals and challenges.

Halloween Party: I haven't heard from anyone who is able to coordinate the party. No worries! I'll send home a sheet this week for food/set up/clean up... just do what you are able to. It will be a fun relaxing time for the kids.

Ipads: We are still getting used to iPads going home! Please remind your child to bring them every day (there has been a lot of "forgetting" lately). We have also had a lot of students not charging them at home.... we do not have extra chargers here.
