Mrs. Knueven's Classroom Newsletter
Grammar: This will be our last week reviewing Level 1 and Level 2 sentence analysis. We will begin learning about phrases after spring break.
Wordly Wise: 13 C&D due Wednesday. Test Thursday
WTW: Quiz Thursday
Writing: Most of the kids are done or close to being done with their first chapter of Famous Hoosiers. We will work on editing chapter 1 this week.
The kids are doing a great job with their projects! Some groups are done, while others are busy putting on the finishing touches. We will present the projects on Wednesday.
We have completed all of our science units! I sent science books home last week and they do not need to come back to school. We will be taking a break from science this week. When we return from Spring Break, we will spend some time reviewing 3rd and 4th grade standards in preparation for the next round of ISTEP+.
We will finish reading Unit 4 this week. The rest of this unit focuses on the years after the Civil War, including how farming changed, the growth of cities, and changes in education and labor laws. There will not be an assessment over these lessons.
We will spend this week of math working on our area and perimeter zoos. We will probably need the week after Spring Break to finish these up since we will have shortened math classes due to all of the extra activities this week.

Indiana State Museum Field Trip
-All chaperones need to pay $5.50
-Ride the bus to and from the museum with the students
-Be willing to be in charge of a small group of students as they tour the museum
-Agree not to buy snacks from the concession stand or take your students to the gift shop. (This has lead to many issues in the past when we have asked students not to bring money and a handful of students get treats while classmates don't get any)
-Have a full background check on file
If I have more than 4 parents interested, I will draw from a hat to select who is able to go as a chaperone. If you are not selected as a chaperone, you are still welcome to meet us down there, but will have to pay the full price of admission ($9 for museum and $9.75 for IMAX).
