The Fourth Grade Home Page


We are excited to begin this new year of 2017 and the 1st Trimester
Religion We pray daily guided by the wide variety of Catholic prayers. We will learn what it means to be practicing Catholics with lessons that are guided by the Christ Our Life student book. We will discuss life in the Catholic Home. We are going to encourage each other to pray for guidance as we follow the will of God throughout our life. We will come to realize that our purpose on earth is to know, love and serve God in this life so that we can be happy with Him in the next.
Mathematics We will learn about place value, expanded notation and concepts dealing with the four math operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Reading We will read young reader novels that your child chooses that are at least 100 pages (20 minutes of reading per night). We will read select readings from a variety of authors in a few different genres. Each 4th grader will read a story to his/her Pre-k buddy few times during the 1st trimester.
Social Studies We will focus on the geography and history of New England. We will highlight the economy and civic life of the New Haven Colony and of the Connecticut Colony. We will visit the Ward-Heitmann house in West Haven.
Science We will study the history, geology and geography of Earth.
