The fourth grade team at T.H.E. Leadership Academy is excited to provide all fourth graders with a rewarding and meaningful experience in all academic subject areas. Student learning is focused on a deep understanding of concepts. Fourth graders will use language arts curriculum including Houghton Mifflin, Ready Reading, Ready Writing, and several novels to reinforce important reading comprehension, language, and grammar skills. We use Ready Math for our math curriculum. Students in fourth grade will spend a great deal of time learning about number sense, decimal and fraction concepts, geometry, and algebra. Fourth graders will learn to apply mathematical concepts to real world situations. Students in fourth grade will also spend a great deal of time learning about the history of California with an emphasis on geography of the state, the mission system, and the impact of the gold rush. Fourth graders will also have the opportunity to cover three different science units on rocks and minerals, magnetism and electricity, and environments. The fourth grade team also reinforces many of our social studies and science topics with exciting field trips to the Gemological Institute of America, Cabrillo National Monument, Mission San Juan Capistrano, and others. The teachers at fourth grade are committed to implementing new technology into all student learning through the use of iPads, Chromebooks, and other digital media.
