Welcome to Mrs. Bateson's Class Page! 


   May 20-24, 2019

Our pupas are transforming into beautiful painted lady butterflies. 

On Friday we had one emerge from its chrysalis and we can't wait to see what we will discover Monday morning.

With our holiday break approaching, we will need to say goodbye to the butterflies on Thursday.

Here is a picture from last year's butterflies celebration.

We said a prayer for safe protection before they flew away into nature.

Please make sure your child has a healthy breakfast to help him/her be successful in school. 

Let's go MMSA Wolves and make it a fabulous year in Kindergarten!




Religion: Chapters 24 & 25

Happy People Bring Joy & Being Alive is Good

The students have been learning the importance of living Jesus' message to "Love One Another." They also are comprehending that their feelings and emotions have an affect on others.  For example, when you smile and be a friend to others, they smile and want to be a friend in return. These two chapters will culminate the message Jesus invites us to live each day and share in his love for others.

We will also visit the chapel on Thursday to pray a decade of the Rosary in honor of Mary.  The students have been practicing the importance of reverence and respect as we join parishioners who may be praying in the chapel as well during our time.


These are helpful expectations we have set to help us be "Kind Kindergartners:"

1. Treat others kindly, respectfully, and lovingly.

2. Do your very best job by listening, following directions, and doing your work well.

3. Be helpful to each other.

4. Have fun!

Superkids story: "The Superkids' Album"

Click HERE for the list of Superkids Memory Words.  Memory words are like high frequency words that you have to memorize rather than sound out.

Please continue to spend time utilizing the Superkids online component as well and rereading the stories found in the previous workbooks set home.  Students are getting familiar with reading skills and we want to help encourage them to continue reading at home.




Math: Exploring teen numbers and what math partners look like in addition and subtraction. Fluency focus: adding up to 10 and subtracting less than 10

Unit 4, Lessons 21-23 & Unit 4 Assessment
