Instruction in our classroom meets or exceeds South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards. Fourth-grade children like to know how things work. Our standards build on their inquisitive nature to help students develop more complex reading and more effective writing skills. Fourth graders are better able to handle abstract ideas in their work. They can analyze different points of view and the implications of the text. At this age, students are able to take more responsibility for organizing and prioritizing their work.
The following components will be addressed each grading period (ongoing throughout the year).
Note: Class time will be provided for the completion of the reports and presentations. However, students should read for at least 20 minutes at home each day in addition to what we accomplish at school!
Summary: Deep inside the broom cupboard of Rose Cottage, two mice live in great style. Tumtum and Nutmeg lead cozy and quiet lives, secretly looking after Arthur and Lucy, the disheveled human children of the cottage, never dreaming that so many exciting adventures will soon find them. But when evil Aunt Ivy threatens their safety, the courageous pair will stop at nothing to save the day. With charming illustrations in every chapter, Tumtum and Nutmeg prove that small-size mice can have world-size hearts.
