As upper-grade students, fourth grade readers are expected to not only comprehend grade-level reading material but to think more deeply about what they are reading—to analyze a book’s underlying messages, to speculate on a character’s motivation, and to consider how the content relates to their own experiences.
In mathematics, fourth graders are working to develop their understanding and fluency in solving multi-digit multiplication and division problems. They are also working more with fractions, learning about equivalent fractions, how to add and subtract fractions, and how to multiply fractions by whole numbers. And they are learning to categorize geometric figures according to their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry.
