What a wonderful year fourth grade is. The foundation for many life skills can be introduced in fourth grade as students take on more responsibility for their own learning and behavior. They began to look at time management skills and how to complete assignments in a way that works to their advantage. At this age, students bring a sense of wonder and excitement to their study of the world.
As fourth graders, our students are experimenting with ways to handle the new responsibilities and freedoms of being an older child. They are also learning about and fine tuning their interactions with their peers, the school, and the larger society. Our classroom strives to provide a forum and directions for these explorations that will help them develop into mature, socially responsible, teenagers. We do this through classroom discussions, learning about other people and cultures, and through community service.
