Summer is here!  I can’t believe the year has flown by so quickly and my “birds are leaving the nest.”  I would like to thank you all of my kindergarten students & families for showering me with gifts!!  You are so kind!  My true gift is getting to work with your children each day!  We have had a wonderful and faith-filled year full of learning.  The Kinders did a great job and we enjoyed our time together very much!  I am so proud of each of them!  To keep them on the strong academic path they are on, it would be a good idea to continue to read at least 20 minutes a day and keep them writing sentences often!  Handwriting practice will be important as well.  In math, it is important to practice math facts (+ and -), time to the hour & half-hour, as well as identifying and counting coins over the summer.  These are all more difficult skills that require continued practice.  By doing this, you will be helping your child have a more confident start to first grade.  For parents of incoming Kinders, please practice correct pencil grip, identifying letters and numbers and writing names.  I am looking forward to seeing your children in August!! I wish you all a blessed summer!  If you ever need anything, please feel free to email me!

Summer Blessings,

Mrs. Tammi Dirienzo
