Welcome to Fourth Grade!Dear Parents,Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We have an engaging and enriching school year planned! This year we will help to deepen your students' learning and skills, in order to prepare them for 5th grade and middle school. Your student will explore multiple areas of Virginia Studies and Science, including hands on activities and real life experiences. Our math curriculum builds upon topics learned in previous grades, yet enhances problem solving skills. In reading, the curriculum teaches students to analyze the books they read, in other words they will be taught to think and talk about a text in order to understand its deeper meanings. Writing will focus on developing writing, so that it has clarity and structure, as well as using reasons, facts and, details to support arguments. In 4th grade we encourage your students to be more independent and take ownership of their learning.
We, the 4th grade team, cannont wait to work with you and your students this school year!
