4th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

In our fourth-grade class, students master the foundations of the paragraph, learning what paragraphs are, why they are useful, and how to write them well. During class, the teacher guides students through the paragraph-writing process, from selecting a topic to organizing ideas to developing a personal style. Students are given frequent opportunities to practice writing through a variety of in-class exercises and homework assignments. Additionally, students learn essential grammar concepts and new vocabulary words, improving their mechanics and breadth of vocabulary for use in their writing.

What happens in class?

Each lesson will include a different combination of:

Homework

Students should expect to spend 60-90 minutes on homework each week. Throughout the year, students will work on several multi-week writing projects. During most weeks, they will complete part of a project at home. It is crucial that students keep up with this process work and come prepared for class each week. Students will also have some reading in their grammar text, Grammar Town, and in their writing text, Paragraph Town, and they will be asked to complete exercises and an online quiz based on the words in their Caesar’s English I vocabulary textbook.

Teacher Feedback

Since students will compete most of their writing in class, there will be many opportunities for the teacher to provide informal feedback face-to-face while students are working. The teacher will conference with students regularly during class, providing oral feedback and some informal written notes on their work. At the end of each multi-week project, students will submit their final draft and receive detailed, formal written feedback from their teacher.

Exams

Students will take an exam at the end of each quarter during class. Each exam will assess students on the grammar and vocabulary covered that quarter.

WAITLIST
"AoPS Academy has provided a wonderful opportunity for my children to advance and hone their knowledge and skills in mathematics.  My children have attended for a few years now, and they love it. They always look forward to attending class. I truly admire the hard work and dedication of all of the staff towards making AoPS Academy a center of excellence for math and language arts.  Both of my sons, one in high school and one in middle school, are ahead of their schoolmates in their math classes.  Not only that, they have both developed a love for this subject aided by the exposure they have received at AoPS Academy. They enjoy the interactive method of teaching, and look forward to their classes. The courses offered at AoPS Academy keep them engaged and challenged. The focus on high achieving students, along with their selective admissions standards, helps to maintain high standards. I have many business associates and friends around the United States, and have told them about AoPS Academy. They are so envious that we have such a wonderful opportunity for such rigorous instruction with the Art of Problem Solving world class curriculum. I look forward to the day when there will be an AoPS Academy in every major city in the country."
