Fourth Grade

Como Fourth Grade

Welcome to the Fourth Grade 2024-25!

We are so excited to welcome you to fourth grade!  Your teachers have been working hard to prepare exciting and enjoyable lessons for you to learn.  Here in the fourth grade, you will find that things are a little different than in third, but your dedicated teachers will help you through these transitions.

The biggest transition for fourth grade is that you are entering into your intermediate education.  There will be a need for students and parents to be actively involved in monitoring learning and participation.  All of these skills will set your fourth grader up for a successful academic career in fourth grade and beyond.  Some of the biggest study skill changes for fourth graders are reading daily from a variety of genres, writing about their reading, and learning to take notes in class. This may sound like a challenge, but we will learn this step by step and help each one of the students through the process.  

We look forward to meeting, teaching, and learning with you!

  • Students are expected to read 30 minutes or more daily at their independent reading level.
  • Homework may also consist of a math assignment Monday through Thursday or a skills packet.

Field Trip Preview

We will be participating in Take Me to the River.  This trip takes the students to Hidden Falls Regional Park.  While the students are there they learn the history of the park and get to take part in orienteering, fire building, and shelter building.
