Reading
 
Fourth grade reading includes a balanced literacy approach.  Throughout the school year, we will develop skills and strategies in the areas of building a reading life, character study, non-fiction, poetry & figurative language, test preparation, mythology, and historical fiction.  It is important to note that in order to share resources and meet the needs of individual students, different classes may cover these topics at slightly different times of the year.

Outside of the school day, it is expected that your student be reading 'just-right' material approximately 2 hours per week/ 20 minutes per evening.
