Course Information


Students can use the major events along with conflict and climax to summarize a text. Also, students can find the main idea and can differentiate between relevant and irrelevant supporting details.

Please have your student read at least 20 minutes everyday.


In math, students will develop a deep and flexible conceptual understanding by actually decomposing polygons into rectangles. Students will be able to identify that when a polygon is decomposed into rectangles, it is possible to find the area of the polygon by finding the area of each rectangle, then adding the areas together.

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.
