Fourth Grade

Don't Get the Summer Slide!

We have learned so much this year in 4th grade! We don't want to lose it before next year - that Summer Slide can really impact how your student starts their year in 5th grade. Use this packet throughout the summer to practice skills learned this year. And don't forget to read, read, read!

 

Summer Slide Packet

Welcome to 4th Grade!

 

4th grade is a transitional year.  It is where students begin to develop study habits and organizational skills.  Students learn about responsibility and are accountable for their own assignments.  Fourth grade procedures are very routine and each day, students get better at budgeting their time and sticking to the routine.

 

Fourth graders are immersed in subject areas across the curriculums that are appropriate to their age.  They are tested on math facts weekly, and study many other areas from geometry to writing equations throughout the year.  We read and discuss many fourth grade novels, and practice different forms of writing with the Units of Study program.  They learn all about Native Americans, European Explorers, Spanish Missions and the Gold Rush.  They focus on the elements of art and create artworks incorporating those elements.  Fourth grade is a busy year!

 

Students participate in the Walk-Through California program where they have the opportunity to dress as figures from California’s past and learn about our history in an interactive way. We will participate in other programs both at school and outside of school that will correspond to our units of study. 

IXL Math

Attached is a document that has IXL skills students could be working on, in addition to those that will be assigned for weekly homework. Skills that do not pertain to our standards have been deleted and  skills that are critical and should be mastered this year are highlighted.  Please encourage your child to practice regularly (especially the highlighted skills).

 

Achievethecore.org has suggessted that 4th graders focus the majority of the their time on:

- Use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve problems

- Understand place value for numbers up to a billion

- Equivalent fractions - identify if two fractions are worth the same amount, write an equivalent fraction if one is given

- Ordering fractions from least/greatest with like and unlike denominators

- Understand how decimals and fractions are related (write a fraction as a decimal and a decimal as a fraction)

- Compare decimals and fractions at the same time (i.e. put these in order from greatest to least:   0.5, 0.08, 1/2, 3/4)
