Curriculum

Fourth Grade Curriculum 

Math: This year we are beginning with "Go Math."  This program encourages mathematical thinking, and also teaches students to write their math processes down. This program is very rigorous, and I encourage you to practice multiplication facts.

Writing starts off in my class with "Every Child a Writer."  I love this program for the beginning of the year due to the fact it really teaches students the proper paragraph, sentence structure and grammar.
Around the Winter Holiday we will add in 6-Traits writing.

Social Studies and Science: We are following the 5th grade curriculum until the end of the year - at that point fifth graders will study Growing and Changing and fourth graders will be gardening, and studying Colorado history.

Reading: We utilize reading street short stories and Core Knowledge Classics.
