Fourth Grade Guidelines

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Fourth grade is when the work becomes challenging for many students, whether they are in school or homeschooled. Fourth graders are expected to be comfortable with their multiplication facts, diligent about reading chapter books, and able to write in cursive. However, this is not the case for all children in grade four, and variations of these abilities are perfectly fine. Some parents elect to teach cursive, while others do not see a point to teaching it. Some students will excel in reading and/or math, and others will struggle a bit. As a parent and teacher of a homeschooler you can relax and take the time your child needs to bring him or her to grade level. Here are guidelines for topics that are generally taught in grade four:
