Fourth grade classrooms are self-contained for all academic subjects expect for mathematics. However, the fourth grade homerooms do many activities together.
Mathematics instruction emphasizes the student's need to understand concepts, know basic facts, efficiently use computation skills, and select and apply appropriate problem-solving strategies.
Our core Science curriculum covers the major topics of geology, sun-earth-moon relationships, the body systems, electricity and magnetism, and animal and plant relationships. Many hands-on activities and trips to our Land Lab are utilized in learning, and teaching science.
Fourth graders write, write, write their way through the school year. Many opportunities to write are presented in the classroom, and in the Computer Lab where the children learn to touch type and compose with word processing skills.
