Year 4

As members of the “upper” grades of elementary school, 4th graders deepen their learning and skills, preparing them for middle school. Fourth graders are still viewed as and learn as elementary school students do. Developmentally, most 4th graders are very much still children; they enjoy and learn from play and thrive in nurturing and warm environments. However, the content of most 4th grade curricula pushes students to think, analyze, and learn in more sophisticated and structured ways. Students are taught to deeply think about and make connections in what they read and learn; write with clarity, flow, and structure similar to that of traditional essays; and learn more complex concepts across all subjects. In addition, 4th graders are encouraged to be more independent in their learning, depending less on the teacher‘s guidance and researching, planning, and revising their work more by themselves.

The 4th grade classroom is structured like most elementary school classrooms, with desks or tables for the students. Technology is a crucial part of the 4th grade classroom, as students use it for extensive writing and research and help them improve their Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics studies.

Much of the 4th grade reading curriculum teaches pupils how to analyze the books they read. Rather than just understand the plot and information given in a text, pupils are encouraged to think about the messages in a text and how it relates to their own lives.

In 4th grade, pupils master and further their multiplication, division, and general computation skills. They learn how to solve real-life word problems using the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) and larger numbers.

As in other grades, the specific topics studied in science vary by state. However, common topics studied in 4th grade include: earth and space; plants; the cycle of life; animals; electricity and magnetism; and motion and sound. some of these topics may also be learnt in relation to their location and where they live.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you have imagined.

– Henry David Thoreau
