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. Below is a sample of the high-quality classic literature and primary sources from which course material is drawn:
  • 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
"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
