Fourth grade is a very exciting year for students. They begin to take ownership of their learning as well as begin developing their functioning skills.
They strengthen their independent reading stamina, as well as adding details to their writing. As mathematicians, they delve deep into more conceptual topics, such as fractions, division and basic equations.
Social Studies is the highlight of fourth grade. Students dig deep into Virginia's history, its geographical makeup, and the famous Virginians who came before them.
In science, students explore
- Virginia ecosystems
- Solar System
These topics will appear again on their science SOL in fifth grade.
Fourth-grade students will take the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in reading and math.
