What’s Up in Fourth Grade

Who really knows what happens when you get to the fourth grade? The fourth graders know. I had a chance to speak to some of these students firsthand to find out what it’s like to be in fourth grade. I spoke to two class representatives and three regular students.

A student from Ms. Woodruff’s class thought her class did a lot of math, doing area models, distributive property, short-cut method, and expanded form method.

A student in Ms. Spingarn’s class said that they focused on science and were doing an essay on Mono Lake which has super high levels of salt. She also said her class went on a field trip to the Botanical Garden. They made corn husk dolls and tasted cocoa bean which she said tasted bitter.

A student from Mr. Souza’s class said he liked math in general and learned about Multiplication Area Strategy.

The class representatives for Ms. Spingarn’s class and Ms. Woodruff’s class said they didn’t get many (actually any) problems from classmates. Guess it is all smooth sailing in fourth grade.
