Reading, writing, and language, are taught through the balanced literacy program. The program included independent reading and work, small group readings and work, whole class activities, shared readings, teacher read-alouds. Grammar is taught through mini-lessons and practiced through writing assignments. The writing process is used as well as teacher, self and peer editing. All students are reading chapter books and learn to make text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to world.
In Math, students learn more complex addition and subtraction, learn their multiplication tables and simple multiplication, and by the end of the year learn simple division. Problem solving skills build on what was taught in previous years and increase in difficulty. The third grade also uses Simple Solutions, a program that provides practice in skills and concepts learned. Fourth grade is the transition grade from the primary grades to the middle grades. In math we learn to double digit multiplication and long division. We also learn about fractions and decimals and continue solving more complex word problems.
In Science, students have been able to participate in hands-on experiments furthering their appreciation and understanding of Science. In science we study the organization of living things, ecosystems, the earth and its atmosphere. Science also includes a study of the earth, plants, and the solar system.
In Social Studies, the curriculum focus is on communities. They learn about different communities, how they are governed, how they were formed, how communities are similar and how they differ. Social Studies in fourth grade focuses on the United Stated and its regions. We study the customs of each region, how they are alike and different.
