Grade 4

Suggested Outline for At-Home Learning:

A tip for maintaining your child's interest throughout the day: break their learning up over the course of the day, or give them breaks between activities. At school, we always do a GoNoodle or two when we switch from one subject to another.

Literacy:

  • At least 45 minutes of reading (can be independent, read to child, or child reads out loud)
  • Read a variety of genres - both fiction and nonfiction
  • Write about reading (at school they would use their reading journal) - 15 minutes or more
  • Pick out words they don't know, search for the meaning using context clues, dictionary, or online.
  • Writing: free-write using a story starter or a prompt (links below)

Math:

  • Skills to retain:
    • multi-digit addition and subtraction using the standard algorithm (with borrowing or carrying, like 543-378)
    • multiplication
      • multiplication table facts (from 1x1 to 12x12)
      • multiplying 2, 3, or 4 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers (345x3) using partial products or the standard algorithm - they just learned both methods in the last 2 weeks at school.
  • At least 45 minutes spent doing math

Social Studies and Science:

Now is a great time for your child to investigate their own interests in science and social studies. Look through the links below for some ideas.
