Grade 4

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

Fourth grade is an exciting time as students become more responsible and take greater ownership of their learning. Students will be adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing large, whole numbers. They'll also work with decimals and fractions. In addition, students will be reading across the curriculum in all subjects and are expected to have a deep understanding of what they read.
