4th Grade » Home


Fourth Graders are preparing for the transition to Fifth Grade and then Middle School, and they experience the view from the upper school for the first time! Fourth Graders engage in the study of World History and many of their novels are historical fiction set in countries around the world. Students are learning how to write a 5-paragraph essay with a thesis statement and the expectation is that all work is submitted typed or in cursive. New for the Fourth Graders is Latin, writing and presenting speeches, the Water Cycle, a study of atoms, and many new and exciting ways to integrate digital literacy into their learning.
