Course Information


Students will continue working on their narrative writing skills by including characters, plot, setting, point of view, conflict and dialogue. We will also work on some of the critical thinking skills like context clues, main idea and supporting deals.

Please have your student read at least 20 minutes everyday.


In math, we will finish up Unit 3 about equivalent fractions. We will start Unit 4 which is a fun geometry unit where we will explore lines, polygons and angles.

Please have your student practice their multiplication facts everyday.

Continue Multiplication Practice

It is vital for our fourth graders to know how to multiply. Division, fractions, perimeter, area, etc. are all built off of multiplication. There are many strategies out there to support your fourth grader in mastering this skill. 4th graders are expected to know multiplication facts between 0-12. This means they know from 0 x 0=0 all the way to 12x12=144.

Spend 20 minutes each school day working on multiplication facts this school year.
