Storyteller Notes Storyteller Notes Education Fourth grade reading is about getting faster and better at reading. Your child already has his basic reading skills in hand. Now he'll focus on using them with greater ease. Children in the fourth grade continue to work on the mechanics of reading, especially vocabulary skills, and expanding the number of words that they comfortably use. They'll also work quite a bit on reading comprehension, learning and using strategies to understand, interpret, and evaluate text. Curriculum varies from state-to-state, but students working at the standard level at the beginning of fourth grade generally:

Information Impact Create high-level, authentic assessments by combining Big6 with creative technology tools. How do we give students a creative, high-level learning experience that results in information literacy success? With the strong focus on the results of state mandated tests, we spend a large portion of classroom time preparing for them. It is difficult to find windows of opportunity for creative, higher-level, authentic assessments. We need these opportunities, however, to allow us to analyze a student’s level of information literacy and their ability to effectively evaluate and synthesize information. As a media specialist, I wanted to create an engaging project that focused on these higher-order skills.

5 Reasons to Use Mentor Texts With Big Kids - The Teacher Next Door - Creative Ideas From My Classroom To Yours When I changed grade levels from second grade to 4th/5th, one of the things I really thought I would miss was all of my wonderful picture books. I used to love to read and re-read them to the kids, to gaze at their delightful pictures, and to use them to get kids excited about the magic of reading. Over the years, I loved picture books so much that if you saw my collection, you might have wanted to nominate me for some kind of teaching hoarder show (I had that many)! When we moved across the country and my new teaching job was 4th/5th (scared the dickens out of me at that time), I thought I would have to give up my picture books, pack them into boxes, and store them in my garage. But once I realized how effective they could be with my big kids, I happily unwrapped these picture book treasures and carted them off to school. Now, many of my picture books are key mentor texts...the stars of countless mini-lessons.
