    Reading

     In Fourth Grade we encourage reading to build vocabulary as well as comprehension skills.

    • Students are encouraged to read  20 minutes each day with books, magazines articles, newspaper among many other reading forums.
    • Students are given a reading log to practice retell and comprehension skills.
    • We encourage our students to practice using the skills they are taught on a day to day basis in class in order for them to become better readers.

    Writing

    Writing skills goes hand in hand with reading. In Fourth Grade, students are given a daily writing journal.

    • Students choose from a variety of topics and interests to practice their writing.
    • Topics such as grammar and sentence structure are taught in order for students to improve on their writing skills.
    • Writing is good practice for students to share their thoughts and ideas.
