Fourth grade is a very exciting year. Students will become independent readers, writers, and thinkers. They will use a variety of organizers, including EEC and 4 Square, to plan their writing. In math, students will integrate technology to learn and use division facts, fraction concepts, geometry, and problem solving skills.

In addition, we will be learning all about New York State. Students will learn about the geography of New York, the early settlers, and our local and state government. In science, students will learn inquiry skills as they study the earth, the human digestive system, nutrition, and simple machines.

Our 4th grade students will be learning and discovering new things everyday. We are looking forward to a successful year!

Fourth Grade Projects

In order to insure that all of our young learners have the same experiences and opportunities to be engaged with 21st century learning, we have developed a number of curriculum projects that integrate existing curriculum with technology.  These projects were developed by teachers in district and regional workshops.
