    October News

    Our Halloween party will be on Tuesday, October 31, 10:00-11:15.  The children should bring their costumes in bags. They may put them on for the party.  This is a gym day, so please don’t forget to make sure sneakers are also sent to school.  If you are interested in helping out for the party, please return the attached form. 

    Book Bingo cards are due on October 31, 2017.


    In spelling, the first several weeks of school are used to review long and short vowels, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs.  We will begin the Words Their Way spelling program on October 30, 2017.  The spelling words that go home and get cut on Monday should stay at home and be used for practice.  


    Please send in a sweatshirt that can be kept at school in the event of a fire drill.

    Homework is given 4 times per week and almost never on Friday. It shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes to complete. Homework is expected to come back to school the very next day. If your child is having a difficult time or is giving you a hard time about completing tasks, please let me know, I can help.


    Math flashcards will be sent home in a yellow envelope. They must be kept in the Communication Folder. Your child should practice these facts frequently.


    They will be assessed periodically and given additional, more challenging cards.


    Looking for extra practice? Visit the Web Resources Page on The Roberts Webpage at: http://www.hamburgschools.org/Page/5353


    Reading quarterlies and math unit tests will be sent home throughout the year. Please review the tests, sign them, and then return them to school.



    Reading Activities – A monthly reading assignment will be sent home each month.  This month we are doing the Book Bingo.  The goal is to encourage your children to read often.  I realize many of them already do, which is EXCELLENT!
