Fourth grade is a year
of exciting changes. Students rise to new levels of independence and
academic responsibility as we guide them through our arts-integrated
units of study: Colorado History, Geography and Government, Structures
of Life and Energy. We teach the state standards through arts integration, such as using drama and visual arts, as well as using traditional skill based learning. Fourth graders also focus on crafting longer pieces of writing, and reading novels that are often integrated with the unit study. More is asked of the fourth grader in terms of academic work and social awareness as they leave their early childhood stage and begin the journey into middle childhood.
