Homeschool Fourth Grade


"Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it." ~~ L.M. Montgomery, The Story Girl

School Reviews/Plans that include fourth grade: 2014-15, 2016-17

Religion

  • Faith and Life 4 along with paper activity book.
  • Increase personal prayer and Bible reading.
  • Once a month Confession.
  • CCD (our diocese's main focus is the New Testament)

Math

Math-U-See (The steady pace, similar problems works well with my son. He tried Teaching Textbooks, which he liked being on the computer, but I disliked as he needed more practice and after a few months was behind again as it introduced topics too fast.)

Reading

  • For Comprehension: Rare Catholic Stories and the Father Brown Readers (both from Catholic Heritage Curricula). My son didn't care for the first and tolerated the second. I think it may have had more to do with answering questions and writing the answers.
  • Independent Reading -- child's choice, my choice, and historical books to add to the history curriculum.

Language Arts


Science

Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures -- finished the insect study in the fall that we started in the spring, took a winter break from official science, and picked up a bird study in the spring. (See science page for more details.)

History

Connecting with History, volume 3: High Medieval Times to Early Explorers (see history page for more detail).

Other Stuff

Naturally, plenty of other learning goes on - dance class, karate, homeschool group activities, faith extras, cooking, drawing and painting, etc. Specific blog posts below:
