Welcome to Fourth Grade! We are doing many exciting things this year. Our main subjects of study are Language Arts (Reading, Writing, and Spelling), Math, Science, and Social Studies.

Language Arts
The children participate in rich literature experiences. We want our students to think deeply about what they are reading. We will study all the different genres of literature through the lenses of readers as well as authors. We will be analyzing text to revise and edit grammar and word choice, as well as big concepts and themes.

Fourth graders learn the entire writing process. They will be writing personal narratives as well as personal expository pieces throughout the year. By the end of the year, they are writing experts!

There are many exciting skills we will be learning this year. Some are multiplication, division, and decimals. We also focus on problem solving, measurement, and fractions. The students participate in many hands on activities to explore the concepts. Look for our symmetry activities in the hallway when we begin geometry!

This year, the fourth grade students will be going on an overnight camping trip to Camp Carter, a YMCA camp in Fort Worth, Texas. Camp Carter provides outdoor education classes with hands-on, experienced-based learning. Classes include Aquatic Study, Nature Journaling, and Orienteering.

Social Studies
Texas History is the focus of Social Studies this year. This includes the regions of Texas, cultural groups, and economy. We will examine the war for Texas' Independence, annexation to the US, the Civil War's effect on Texas, and identify many notable figures throughout Texas History.
