4th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

Our fourth grade students will begin a rigorous study of classic words, Latin and Greek stems, paragraph construction, and grammar analysis. This course will expand on fourth grade reading and writing objectives for written communication, oral communication, literature, and syntax. We use Michael Clay Thompson's language arts series to challenge our high-achieving students.

Reading Sources

By introducing our students to complex passages from some of the world's greatest writers, we teach students both how to understand intricately-expressed ideas as well as to convey their own insights.

  • Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  • Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln
  • Peter Pan by James M. Barrie
  • The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
  • Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • The Call of the Wild by Jack London
  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss
  • Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson
  • Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank Gilbreth
