Reading and writing are a very important part of our fourth grade curriculum in all subject areas.  It is important that this is reinforced at home.  Students should be encouraged to underline information in the text when working in their WORKBOOKS. The students are expected to use opening and closing sentences as well as details in their written responses.  There are also creative writing prompts listed in the links on my page to help practice writing mechanics and use of details.
