4th Grade

Welcome!

Fourth grade is an exciting year! Students are no longer in the primary grades and while there are higher expectations, the students' natural curiosity and enthusiasm help them to reach their full potential. 

Using the Archdiocesan Standards as our our guide, we work through the curriculum independently, in small groups, and as a whole group. Lessons are planned around student needs and skill levels. 

Religion:

The most important "subject" in 4th grade is Religion. However, it isn't just a subject. Yes, we learn the 10 Commandments and standard prayers....but it is so much more. We develop and nurture a relationship with Jesus and what it means to live our faith. 

Reading:

Fluency and comprehension is the goal when reading both during and outside of class time. Along with our textbooks, novels are incorporated to build their reading stamina. 

Math:

For Math, students explore the basics and build upon them. Students study various problem-solving strategies that meet the needs of different learners. 

Social Studies:

In Social Studies, we journey through time to study our nation's history and, more specifically, our state's history. Part of this journey are field trips and other events used to help enhance and hopefully experience our history.

Science:

Science and STEM are learned best through hands-on discovery. Experiment/projects are part of the curriculum with further opportunities that challenge students to dig deeper and continue to discover new ideas. 

 

I am blessed to have this opportunity to share my faith and love of learning with my students!

- Miss Jankovich, 4th Grade Teacher
