AREAS OF STUDY:
We can not stress fast facts enough. It is so important for every student to know their multiplication and division facts from 0-12. All of the skills addressed in mathematics are dependent upon the strategies of multiplication and division.
SOCIAL STUDIES AND SCIENCE
This year we are focusing on United States History and scientific inquiry and investigations. The information taught can be found on the South Carolina Department of Education website under support documents for Social Studies and Science- grade 4.
In ELA we will focus on reading comprehension, reading strategies, writing, and vocabulary practice.
SCHOOL WIDE PROGRAMS:
IXL is a learning program that will help them in math and language from school and home.
This year our students will be working to improve their reading strategies through the use of Fountas and Pinnell. This is exciting because every child can work at their own pace along with teacher directions and guidance.
We have a school wide friendly competition with AR. All students are expected to participate in the Accelerated Reader as it encourages reading . This is an opportunity for students to read books that are “just right” for them and test their knowledge about the book
