Fourth Grade is an exciting year. Much of fourth grade will involve cementing concepts learned in previous years; but much will also involve exploring newer concepts, ways of learning, and study skills that will help the students become even more self-sufficient in their future schooling.
We will begin the year with a newly adopted language arts program, entitled Treasures. This program is similar to Open Court. This will be a transition period for language arts as we will then move away from Treasures and on to core literature and much later in the year, to literature circles. In Math, we will begin the year with a review of place value through the millions place. In Social Studies, the primary focus for the year will be on California -- it's geography, history, economy, oand so on. For Science, the fourth grade students will be participating in a science rotation.
