Welcome to the DLMS 6th Grade Math Page
Looking for a gift idea? Recently a few students have been bringing in the old favorite Rubik's Cube. It has been interesting to see students interact with each other with this mathematical problem solving device. There are other types of puzzles like this. Why not give them a try also.
We just finished up our Unit 2 on multiplying and dividing decimals. Check with your child. How do they think they did? Individual reports will be sent electronically very soon.
Up next...Factors, GCF, LCM and comparing and ordering fractions.

Unit 1 Assessment
The first assessment has to happen. From here we can see who may need some more practice or who needs to be challenged more. Very soon you should receive an e-mail showing you how your student did. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

6th Grade Behavior Reward Auction
We are looking for donations to our end of the year auction. If you have anything that your 6th grader enjoys and it is within your budget, please consider donating it to the auction. We are working toward having a real live auctioneer on hand for the final one. Thank you in advance for your help.
Book Swap to happen in the 6th Grade.
Kelsey Wulf, from the public library, will be coming to talk to us about the summer reading program. In honor of this opportunity, the 6th graders are doing a summer book swap. Bring a gently used book that you are no longer reading and "swap" it with another. Please make sure that they are 6th grade age appropriate. If you bring in one, you take home one. If you bring in 3, you take home 3. Please remember that these books will not be returned. They are traded and will become property of the new owner.
6th Graders MCA Test Today and Tomorrow
Remember to eat breakfast and step into the mindset of "I am going to do my best even when I get frustrated."
Stay strong, mathematically, all summer long.
TenMarks is a site that is giving a free summer opportunity where students can keep their math skills strong. Go to TenMarks for more details.
