New Hebron Christian School

4th Grade

Educational Objectives

In 4th grade we strive to provide hands-on opportunities to learn and explore. Due to our small class size, we are able to focus on the individual needs of each student.  We focus on providing each student with a good foundation for life-long learning.

The students will be learning the states and their capitals, the presidents, and where places are in the world. Students will learn a lot about nature and the world that God created. They will dive into English, learning the parts of speech and how to compose narratives and strong essays. They will also participate in class novel-reading as well as individual AR reading. 

In Math, students will learn everything from common factors to simple geometry. Computer time will be spent working on keyboarding skills and furthering their research abilities. In Bible class, 4th graders will learn about the life and character of Christ.

Students’ assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. It is their responsibility to complete the assignments and turn them in on time. In 4th grade, we emphasize taking on some personal responsibility in their education.
