CEDAR4 (Full Day Grade 4 Curriculum)

Course ID: 1004

Cedar4 is a weekly encounter with other 4th grade students in a classroom setting. Students will enjoy and be challenged by a day in the classroom with courses to include Writing, Grammar, Literature, Math, Science, and History.
Classroom experience: In the classroom each week lessons will be creatively taught to cover grammar, writing, literature, math and history and science. We will play games, complete hands-on learning projects, share stories, and participate in science labs and history activities.
Home experience: Each week there will be an assignment sheet emailed for the students (see example below). Parents are responsible for grading the material as no grades are assigned in our Elementary programs.

Note: Besides the resources listed below, other materials needed for this class follow:

- 4 two-pocket folders labeled as follows: (Green- Math, Blue- History, Red- Literature, and Yellow- Writing)

- One clear plastic shoebox with a snapping lid

This box will be left at CEDAR. Please write your student's name on the box. This will hold your student's supplies.

- Inside the box, please put scissors, crayons, colored pencils, a ruler, markers, glue stick, a box of sharpened pencils, EXPO dry erase markers, small dry erase board, and 3 highlighters.

- Spiral-bound 3x5 inch lined index cards

- Spiral notebook for class

Mrs. Irizarry suggests purchasing a large three-ring binder so that you can add your student's weekly assignments. This binder will serve as your student's portfolio, which can be used for the end-of-year evaluation.
