Welcome to 4th grade

I'm so glad we will spend your 4th grade school year together.


This year in science we will be doing a hand's on approach to study three different units:
Rocks and Minerals - Fall
Electricity and Magnets - Winter
Life Cycle - Spring



We do a lot of writing in 4th grade to prepare for the Nebraska State Writing Assessment.   Students will write personal narratives using a variety of prompts.  They are scored holistically based of ideas, conventions, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and organization.  At times students orally present their writings to the class.


The 4th grade social studies curriculum centers around Nebraska's history, government, and agriculture.  We will do a variety of activities throughout the year.  Often field trips are included to enhance student's understanding of our state.
