Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Fourth grade classes are heterogeneously grouped and are assigned to four classrooms. Grade level meetings are held weekly, providing opportunities to discuss current issues, ideas, and concerns.
The fourth grade core curriculum includes Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. Physical Education, Music, Art, Guidance, Library, and Computer Science classes are conducted during the Encore activity block each day. State and local SOL’s provide the mainframe for all instructional planning.
Classroom instruction involves whole group and cooperative learning strategies. Small instructional groups are frequently formed as needed for the best interest of each child.
Assessment is an on-going process and classwork will be sent home to be reviewed by parents.
The fourth grade teachers incorporate technology using Chromebooks and online learning opportunities.
The fourth grade program encourages independence, both in academics and life skills.
