Welcome to 4th Grade! This year we will be studying a variety of topics in English and Language Arts as we prepare for the Common Core PSSA's next spring.
Curriculum - Get ready to expand your vocabulary! This year we will test our memories as we learn new words and their meanings. Prefixes, suffixes, and roots will be explored and applied to determining meanings of words. Comprehension skills will be reinforced with a variety of fiction and non-fiction text. Each week, we will read a story, incorporating our new words, and test our vocabulary strategies and comprehension skills.
Various spelling and grammar strategies and skills will be examined and assessed. In writing we will be working on focus, content, organization and style. We will also work on narrative, informational and opinion writing.
Goals - Follow the class rules!
Work to the best of your ability!
Have a great year!
