Fourth Grade Basic Skills

School changes quite dramatically for students in fourth grade. Students will be applying reading skills in content area subjects such as social studies, science, and health. Study skills will become very important as kids will now be asked to write reports and handle long-term assignments. In fourth grade, most students will learn to:
  • Divide by one-and two-digit numbers.
  • Use calculators and computers.
  • Add and subtract fractions.
  • Use contextual clues to discover the meaning of words.
  • Understand and use the steps of the writing process from pre-writing to the final draft.
  • Write research reports.
  • Locate information in the library.
  • Use encyclopedias, newspapers, atlases, and magazines as resources.
