4th Grade




Mrs. Longnecker, Mrs. Autry, and Mrs. Froggatt

The Basics

 

Fourth grade is an exciting year for students!  They will have many opportunities to learn and grow as the year progresses.

  

Language & Literacy

 

For reading, students will study a variety of genre including realistic and historical fiction, nonfiction, and fantasy.

 

In writing, students will refine their use of The Event Frame as they explore figurative language, introductory clauses, and sentence variety.

  

Math

 

Students will continue their multiplication and division facts, working with fractions, place value, decimals, and multi-step word problems.  We also study probability, graphing, and geometry.

 

Social Studies

 

We will be covering Virginia's History starting with Jamestown and ending with the 20th Century!  We will get to travel to Jamestown and Pamplin Park to see first hand how life in Virginia was during those time periods.

 

Science

 

We will explore electricity with STEM projects by making our own hands free lantern!  Students will also study space, plants, and weather.
