Fourth Grade

Fourth grade is a year of raucous laughter as the 10-year-old’s attention turns outward, seeing themselves as one unique part of the whole.  Study of the animal world, local geography, fractions and the rest roots the children firmly in the earth as active participants in their world.  Topics include:

  • tenses
  • letter writing
  • grammatical rules
  • fractions
  • word problems
  • long division
  • averages
  • Norse and Germanic myths and sagas
  • alliteration
  • foreign language – as above, grammar begins, written work and dictation
  • music – time values, harmony, major and minor third, rounds and orchestral stringed instruments such as cello or violin
  • cross stitch and embroidery
  • clay modeling of animals and geometric shapes
  • local history and early settlers
  • map making/ zoology
  • square and folk dancing
  • running jumping and throwing games
