A Complete Program of Language Arts Instruction for Grade 4


The grade four English language arts program develops fiction and non-fiction reading skills and continues to expand children's writing skills. In a five day week, children work on reading comprehension for three days and writing skills for the other two. For the reading component, one of the five days focuses on a novel study, another is for independent reading and the last is for non-fiction reading skills. In the fourth grade children learn about how textbooks are organized and practice their reading skills through high interest single page factual articles.

Writing instruction encompasses a variety of activities. These include: handwriting, spelling, punctuation and capitalization, dictionary and grammar skills, paragraphs, poetry, a research report and story writing. In addition, children at the fourth grade level explore six story patterns through story mapping, develop author language skills through paragraph writing, and learn letter-writing formats through a fun project.

Parents are shown how to teach their children step by step through a detailed teacher's manual with answer keys.



Bullet 4th Grade SMARTS in Language Arts: Home Education Edition was written specifically for home educators.

Bullet Child is guided by a workbook that teaches fiction and non-fiction reading skills, writing and spelling skills in a sequential order. These are applied in the lessons and reviewed until mastery is obtained.

Bullet Parents discover a simple, effective method of teaching language arts using a teacher's manual. Lesson plans and answer keys are presented in a simple, straightforward manner.


The Foundation in Grade Four Matters

Did you know that...

  • Many children who are proficient readers at the end of third grade begin to struggle in the fourth grade?
  • That the fourth grade slump has been documented as a result of children having to suddenly navigate complex non-fiction texts?
  • That the amount of writing expected in all subject areas increases significantly from third to fourth grade?
