Quarter 1 Curriculum Overview


During the first couple of weeks, we will focus on reviewing important skills and strategies. We will also learn fourth grade routines. Later in the quarter, we will study fiction and non-fiction texts around the theme of government.


This quarter we will learn about place value and adding, subtracting, and multiplying whole numbers. We will multiply by single-digit and multi-digit numbers.


Our first unit will be on writing constructed response paragraphs using text evidence. Later, we will shift focus to writing narratives.


Students will be learning all about waves, including light waves and sound waves.

Social Studies

Fourth grade focuses on California history. We will begin by learning about the regions of California.
