More than half of fourth grade science is lab based and tackles the hands on approach to learning. Experimenting, demonstrating, and collaborating are all tools that students must use to gain the knowledge needed to carry out the components and processes of science. The water cycle, practicing laboratory safety procedures, energy, electricity, adaptations and habitats are just a few of the many fourth grade science TEKS being discussed throughout the school year.
Here at Jones, we believe that writing is a clear expression of one’s feelings written on paper.Through writing students can express, entertain, persuade, and describe.
The drive of our writing curriculum is the 4th grade Language Arts TEKS. To supplement these skills, we use elements from a combination of programs that include but are not limited to:
The Writing Academy
6 +1 Trait Writing
By the end of fourth grade, students will be knowledgeable, not only in the skills required, but also be able to fully and clearly express themselves in writing.
