Fourth Grade

Fourth graders are now part of the “big” kids at Heritage. They have transitioned from the primary stage of elementary school to the intermediate stage.

Fourth grade is about learners being engaged and interested in their content areas through making decisions with strong personal voice and choice. We create goals from a growth mindset for how we want to develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Our classrooms foster inclusive, caring, supportive, and challenging environments.

Personalized learning in 4th grade involves: Creating, communicating, collaborating about products that they initiate ideas for. This can be developed from guided activities such as the 1st stages of Genius Hour, a math menu, novel projects, and social studies or science inquiry based units of study (Design Thinking challenges).
