Fourth Grade with Ms. Sanchez

Our focus is on learning the standards involving estimation, multiplication, long division, and fractions.

We study animal habitats, earthquakes and volcanoes, and rocks and minerals.

Students advance comprehension and fluency skills by studying several novels including classics like:  Bridge To Terabithia, Old Yeller,  and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe .  

Social Studies
We study California history including the Gold Rush, Native Americans, Western explorers, and the California Missions.

Faith-based lesson topics include the Ten Commandments, beatitudes, and sacraments.

Language Arts
We practice writing narrative, informative, opinion and research based papers. The final paper will culminate by incorporating a fun biography project.

Hallmarks of Fourth Grade

Fourth grade is known for the comprehensive projects students complete. Students are excited to research, build, and use their creativity for each unit. Some interesting projects include creating a World Monument, California Mission, and becoming a famous person during our Biography unit. 

In addition, we participate in fun field trips related to the 4th grade curriculum, including the Exploratorium, Academy of Sciences, the SF MOMA, a California Mission, and the SF Zoo.
