Language Arts

In the elementary years, both reading and writing are used as a lens through which to explore the human experience. No matter the early-childhood track they began their studies in, students enter 4th grade at a similar range of reading levels, and are prepared to take on more advanced reading and writing assignments. In 4th grade, students work on literacy, reading and writing; continue to develop their reading fluencies as they engage with different types of texts; and are asked to analyze texts. 

In fourth grade, students are transitioning from learning to read to reading to learn. There is an increased focus on nonfiction writing and writing conventions, with assignments covering persuasive writing, informative writing, poetry and more.
