In Fourth Grade:
In fourth-grade social studies, students will learn about California history. We will explore weather, ecosystems, rocks and soil, and electricity and magnetism in science. Fourth-grade writers will expand their writing skills to produce multi-paragraph essays and to write over more extended time frames. In reading, fourth-grade students will begin tackling more complex texts, with a particular focus on reading for information. Fourth grade is also a big year in math! Students will expand their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to larger numbers, and build foundational skills with fractions and decimals.
