Oak Meadow’s fourth grade curriculum reflects the awakening intellect and independence of fourth graders.
Starting in grade 4, the Oak Meadow curriculum is written directly to the student, and will guide them through the study of language arts, science, social studies, and math. Language Arts assignments in poetry, journal writing, and short story writing tap into the student’s awareness of self, which is expanded through the study of children’s literature. In social studies, the fourth grader’s independence is reflected in a study of westward expansion and frontier life. Students also study basic life science, animal behavior, and astronomy through close observation and investigative activities. The 4th grade curriculum for math expands the skills of multiplication and division, and features a comprehensive and creative introduction to fractions and long division. Artistic expression is explored through an intensive study of perspective drawing, and students have many opportunities to apply their drawing skills in assignments across the subjects.
