Welcome to fourth grade! This is a year spent reinforcing the unbelievable amount of knowledge the students have already amassed over the years. We learn about our great state of Michigan and the US as a whole. We learn how we became and who we are and how God is and always has been present in it all. Fourth grade is a year of highly visible progress in reading, grammar, spelling, and writing exercises. In math we develop understanding and fluency with multi-digit addition, subtraction, and multiplication, as well as learning about division, equations, word problems, measurement, fractions, and geometry. Hands-on experiences in science will enhance our understanding of God's world as we study the earth, organisms, energy transfer and states of matter.
