The fourth grade teachers would like to welcome all fourth grade students and families to the new school year. There are lots of great things in store for you and we are very excited to get the year started! In fourth grade, students will review and build upon many of the concepts they have learned in past years, as well as learn many new ones.
Reading: Students will work on building reading stamina, fluency, and comprehension. They will work on many skills, some including making connections and predictions, determining point-of-view, and locating information in informational text.
Math: Students will continue to develop their multiplication and division skills as we move into multi-digit multiplication and long division. Students will also be exposed to deeper fraction concepts, as well as introduced to decimals. It is imperative that students come in to 4th grade with a mastery of multiplication facts from 0 - 12.
Writing: Students will write a variety of pieces ranging from narratives to poetry. They will also be required to write two North Carolina content-area writing pieces throughout the year.
Science: Students will participate in four science units throughout the year, including Earth Materials, Magnetism and Electricity, Animal Studies, and Landforms. These kits will allow students time to complete hands-on investigation and experiments.
Social Studies: Students will be immersed in North Carolina’s culture, people, economy, and regions.
The fourth grade teachers are looking forward to getting to know your child and family. We know that the school year is going to be great!
See you in August!
