In fourth grade our students will extend their practice in multiplication and division to 1000, mastering various problem types. Understanding that every whole number is a factor of its multiples will be introduced as students find all factor pairs of numbers up to 100. Students will apply the concept of place value as they solve multi-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. Fractions will be turned into decimals and back again as students compare, add and subtract fractions. Students will compare measurements within a single system and solve real-world problems about measurements of all types. Our students will finish the year identifying and measuring angles of all sizes, as well as classifying 2-dimensional shapes. In reading, fourth-grade students focus on finding the central idea of a text, making connections, referring to the text when answering questions, comparing and contrasting texts, determining the meaning of key vocabulary, and using text features. Students also write opinion, narrative, and explanatory pieces using appropriate grammar, spelling,and punctuation.
