4th Grade

Our Fourth Grade Program focuses on children that are nine to ten years old and has a touch of excitement with Social Studies covering the birth of the American dream and Science covering forest plants and animals. Students continue to grow in their reading and math skills, including work with larger numbers, metric measurement, decimals, operations with equivalent fractions, and more.

4th grade includes:

Illustrated Family Bible Stories

Capturing all the major Old and New Testament stories (over 200), this Bible story book is designed for older elementary children who are ready to read on their own but still have a great appreciation for informative illustrations. Stories are presented chronologically with scripture references.

Math – Book 4

In Book 4 the family travels through the United States. The twins and friends learn about landmarks, Americas heroes, and work in their garden as they review concepts from Book 3 and do further work with larger numbers, metric measurement, decimals, operations with equivalent fractions, and more. Math Fact Reviews are incorporated into the lessons so that students won’t forget foundational math information.

Reading – Book 4

The stories in the reader Bridges Beyond take the child to the past, to the animal world, and to other lands. Meet young Noah Webster who was fascinated with words, a fox who outwitted his enemy, a seal who wouldn’t swim, a French girl who puzzles over a mystery, and a Dutch family who wonders whether war will stop the stork’s return.

America’s Story Volume 2

From the birth of the American dream through to the modern era, this series was developed using Charlotte Mason education philosophy to learn through interaction and story elements that connect students emotionally through learning about America and its influence throughout the world. Through this unique educational style, children develop comprehension through oral and written narration, and create memories through notebooking and hands-on crafts. This is not just facts and figures; this is living history.

Student journals help students connect more deeply to the lessons.

Journals include pages for writing and drawing, special project pages, written narration pages, and timeline characters to help children narrate their way through history’s story.

The series is both easy-to-follow and easy-to-use!

Each unit (except the last) has five regular lessons followed by a review lesson for that unit.

Story of Berlioz in Words and Music CD

DID YOU KNOW…

Berlioz revolutionized orchestral music in a variety of ways.

Story of Schubert in Words and Music CD

DID YOU KNOW…

Schubert was the greatest composer of German art songs, writing over 600, sometimes several in a single day.

His idol was Beethoven, but his own music was very different.

Schubert never found employment and got by only with help from friends who understood his genius.

Most of his music remained in manuscript until after his death. His greatest works were never played in his lifetime.

Stories of Schumann & Grieg In Words and Music CD

DID YOU KNOW…

As a young man, Schumann permanently injured his hand and was forced to give up plans for a piano-playing career. He became a composer instead- his loss was our gain.

Schumann was an important music critic and was among the first to recognize such giants as Chopin, Brahms, and Berlioz.

A victim of mental instability, he spent his last years in an asylum and wrote no more music.

Grieg is Norway’s most famous composer. Because his style is lyrical and he wrote mostly for the piano, he is sometimes called “The Chopin of the North.”

Norwegian folk music strongly influenced Grieg, who used national elements in his music.

Grieg enjoyed a happy home life and successful career, unlike most great composers.
