Fourth Grade Literacy

literacy_4.jpgThe reading program is comprised of guided and independent reading and literature study groups. We study many different genres including traditional literature, realistic fiction, historical fiction, information, biography, and poetry. Writing in Readers’ Notebooks allows students to share their thoughts about their reading.

Writing and Word Study
Our writing program features the writing process as a series of steps from gathering ideas to publishing pieces. In addition, we practice the six traits of writing: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, conventions, and sentence fluency.
