to the exciting and challenging year of Fourth Grade. The excitement begins
in October when the the fourth graders take a soggy field trip to the
Everglades, where we ride an airboat and go slogging in the muck!
We will be on the trail of history again
in May when we journey to the oldest city, St. Augustine, Florida. There,
we will travel back in time
to the Spanish and British time periods at a museum. The overnight adventure
continues as we visit many historical sites in the city.
The challenge of the Fourth Grade curriculum
begins right away when we quickly review all the multiplication tables
and then dive into division.
The multiplication tables will also carry us through to fractions. From
geometry to algebra, you will be amazed where we go in Math. In Social
Studies, Fourth Grade will uncover the past through the present of our
great state, Florida. Our Science lesson begins with studying our
planet and solar system. We will also learn more about the wonders of
the human body.
In Fourth Grade, writing and reading are a main focus. Writing, using
ample support, good word choice, and organization in both narrative and
expository writing is what we work on year round. Reading is focused on
by examining each of the comprehension skills to increase our reading
Fourth Grade is where we start to master the social and academic skills
that will carry all of the students through middle school and we also
have a lot of fun!
