Welcome to Mrs. Bateson's Class Page! 

Summer 2017


May the sunshine warm your face

As you settle into summertime pace.


May the lake water warm your toes

And the summer breeze tickle your nose.


May you find happiness in the simple things

And look forward to what the future brings.


May you share Jesus in your heart

And never, ever feel apart.

Thank you, Malia, MN Arboretum Educational Specialist!


The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle

John did an amazing job using the shapes to represent the

stages of a butterfly metamorphosis.

Each picture represents a stage:

1. egg

2. caterpillar

3. pupa

4. butterfly


Take a trip to the MN Zoo this summer! 

Kindergarten had so much fun learning about the animals. 

You could, too!


Religion: Birthday celebrations galore. Thank goodness we were born and share our lives with wonderful families and friends.  We are prepared for a summer rich with spreading God's love with everyone we meet.  May God bless you and keep you safe this summer!


Language Arts: Please continue to read 20 minutes daily.  Invite your child to follow along as you point to the words and help sound out the words. Also, keep practicing writing names with one capital letter.



Have a wonderful summer!
