Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Fourth grade is a fantastic year filled with exciting history studies, intriguing literature that grabs the imagination, hands-on science, and math that will help the students as they continue to develop the skills for the next years ahead. Some of the history topics we cover include Colorado History, Europe in the Middle Ages, African Kingdoms, American Revolution and the building of a Constitutional Government. Along with Open Court our 4th graders read King Arthur, Treasure Island, and Brown Girl Dreaming. Our writing focus continues to build on paragraph writing into multi-paragraph essays; expanding on expository, persuasive, and informational writing. Science topics include form and function of organisms, electricity, and waves. We're excited to have a brand new math curriculum to guide our students in learning long division, fractions, and units of measurement. It's going to be a great year.
