Fourth Grade Full Curriculum
Goals of the Fourth Grade Full Curriculum:
Grammar is a major focus of fourth grade. Students are introduced to the parts of speech and diagramming. Covenant Home’s Grammar Activities accompany the Language Roundup worktext, reinforcing the concepts through interesting stories and exercises, not endless pages of unrelated sentences having no value to the reader. Our Handbook of Grammar Rules is keyed to both text and Grammar Activities.The two main pieces of literature in this grade are Hans Brinker and God Made Them Great. Several interesting readers are scheduled in the Day-by-Day, along with The Iliad and The Odyssey, which are integrated with the study of Ancient Greece. The two remaining short classics are chosen with the gender of the student in mind. We really do try to encourage the reading of good literature in every possible way! The Note-Taking/Book Report Guide continues to be of major importance in the intermediate grades.
A new series of Bible studies is begun. Students return to the Old Testament studying Creation through King Saul. Parents report that they are able to use this text with many levels of learners, and they, too, are blessed and challenged by the thorough lessons. In Science, the student will study the flying creatures in Creation. The main focus in Math is on long division. One feature of our fourth grade which has been well received is the study of Ancient Greecethrough the Famous Men series. We have made these materials much more complete and easier to use through our Day-by-Day scheduling, our FM of Greece Test Set and Covenant Home’s History Overlay.
