Welcome to 4th grade! We are beginning a new and exciting year. Lots of learning and fun will be going on, along with some hard work! I am looking forward to working with a new group of fourth graders this year! If you have any questions or need to get in touch with me you can reach me through the school web-site or by telephone: 586-5888, extension 217.
Religion: The fourth grade program focuses on the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes as guides for living. The students use these guidelines and apply them to their lives. Students are involved in prayer services, liturgical year celebrations and service projects.
Integrated Language Arts: The fourth grade reading curriculum uses a basal reader as the basis of its program. This program uses a wide variety of literary genre to study vocabulary, word skills, comprehension skills, phonics, and literary styles. Recreational reading is encouraged through book reports, library time and independent reading time.
The language arts portion of the program focuses on all aspects of the English language. A spelling book focuses on a family of words each week. The English component emphasizes grammar, speaking, and listening. The writing program stresses the writing process and traits of good writing.
Math: The fourth grade program continues to build on the prior mathematical knowledge of the students. This is done with daily math lessons that focus on a new skill while reviewing other skills. Lessons will introduce number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), problem solving, measurement, estimation, graphs and charts, geometry, fractions, probability, time, and algebraic concepts.
Social Studies: Fourth graders analyze the historical events, people, and places in New Jersey. The program emphasizes strong and effective map skills and the use of charts and graphs. Students will be responsible for completing several independent projects.
Science : The units of study include life science, earth science, and physical science. Students use the tools and process of scientific inquiry in each unit of study which includes several hands-on investigations. Students will be responsible for completing several independent projects.
HOMEWORK: May 1-5
