Fourth grade at Bear Creek Elementary School is exciting because students start to gain more independence. The focus for math in fourth grade is on multiplication, division, decimals, fractions and a review of geometry principles. Fourth grade reading focuses on building strong comprehension skills and fluency using Every Child a Reader. Writing in fourth grade begins to transition from descriptive writing into opinion, narrative, report writing, and response to reading using Every Child a Writer. Fourth grade science is very interactive and uses kits to teach units on space, human body systems, and electricity. A field trip to a space related venue is a highlight of the science curriculum. Social studies comes alive in fourth grade with a focus on Colorado history, basic economics and civics. A field trip to a Colorado history related venue always helps to bring our history to life.
