Fourth Grade


(9 years)

In find the factors and multiples of numbers. We are then using those skills to add and subtract fractions, simply fractions and recognize equivalent and non-equivalent fractions. We will soon be learning to work with decimals. In English reading and writing, the new homework policy reinforces the ability of students to write a clear essay with introduction, body and conclusion. Each week the students read a topic of their interest and in class work to improve their writing skills to write a clear, concise report. We continue to discuss and reinforce in the classroom the mentality of growth mindset to always be open to take risks and learn from them.
