About 4th Grade
Fourth grade is an exciting year! Throughout the year, we will be learning all about the different states and regions of the United States. In science, we will be learning about plants, animals, earth and its landforms, and about energy and electricity. In math, students will make a transition from completing worksheets to answering questions from their math textbook. In reading, we will be learning about all of the different types of strategies that help us become good readers. Students are expected to read 30 minutes every night at home. Finally, in writing we will be working to write paragraphs. I am looking forward to having your child in our classroom this year!
