The fourth grade literacy curriculum allows students to not only learn and practice their reading strategies, yet master them using both fiction and nonfiction texts. Our curriculum utilizes a variety of resources to help each student grow and advance as much as possible. It is completely aligned with the CCSS. I encourage the children to engage with one another as much as possible through whole group, small group, partner, and independent work. They are allowed to use every crevice of our classroom, as well as, the hallway whenever needed.
