Fourth Grade is a time when students begin to learn about themselves as learners and their role as members of the greater community, asking “How do my actions affect others?”
Fourth Graders gaze at their world with growing intellectual curiosity. They become more self-reliant as they develop into independent problem solvers and critical thinkers. They begin to learn the importance of organizational skills, study habits, and time management. As this growth takes place, it is crucial that the students are supported by a safe learning environment that exercises and expects kindness, respect, and appreciation for the similarities and differences of others.
