Welcome to Fourth Grade. This grade builds on some of the 3rd grade concepts and introduces many new concepts. Students will explore and engineer in their Science units which include Astronomy, Organisms, Sound and Light and Weather. Our Social Studies curriculum covers United States history including the American Revolution and the Civil War. We will have math workshop with problematic tasks and number talks. During Writing Workshop, students will write opinion, expository pieces and narratives. Students will read and analyze fiction and non -fiction text as they work in differentiated small groups and independently. Also, students will use iPads daily as they integrate technology into their learning. Fourth grade students are expected to work cooperatively and strive to be responsible and hard working L.E.A.D.E.R.S. in our school!
