Welcome to fourth grade! Whole numbers are easy at this point—fractions are what separate the true mathematicians from the beginners. (This is not true, but hopefully your fourth graders feel that way). In fourth grade, students will build on the multiplication and division skills mastered in the previous year to solve more complex problems using a variety of strategies. Pattern recognition is emphasized and place value is revisited. Students can now fluently add and subtract large numbers, compare fractions and decimals, and begin applying operations to those numbers. Various units of measurement are explored and angles and lines serve as the primary themes for most geometry work.

Is there anything more rewarding than listening to your fourth grader give a mini dissertation on a new topic they just read about for the first time? Expertise is born in books. Most fourth grade-level readers are moving beyond basic consumption of text toward deeper levels of understanding and connection. Students will be developing the ability to infer much more than they have in the past and integrate information from multiple sources to build background knowledge on various subjects. eSpark's fourth grade reading content is focused primarily on Reading Literature and Reading Informational skills, with an emphasis on not just understanding text, but also synthesizing and using the information.

Some of the skills students will master in eSpark include:

Math

- Understanding multiplicative comparisons and distinguishing them from additive comparisons
- Solving multi-step, whole-number word problems using all four operations
- Learning how to use letters as stand-ins for unknown quantities
- Identifying patterns and implicit features of patterns
- Using place value to round multi-digit whole numbers
- Reading and writing multi-digit whole numbers using numerals, number names, and expanded form
- Fluently adding and subtracting multi-digit whole numbers
- Multiplying multi-digit numbers with place value, properties of multiplication, and arrays
- Explaining equivalent fractions and comparing fractions
- Adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers
- Understanding decimals

Reading

- Referring to details and examples when explaining what the text says and describing elements in depth
- Drawing inferences from text
- Determining the meaning of words and phrases based on origin and context
- Explaining the differences between poems, drama, and prose and identifying structural elements of each
- Comparing and contrasting point of view and firsthand vs. secondhand accounts
- Determining the main idea of nonfiction text and the theme of a story, drama, or poem
- Describing structure using chronological, cause/effect, and problem/solution language
- Interpreting information presented in non-text formats like charts, graphs, and web elements
- Understanding and explaining author logic and evidence
