our fourth grade

In the fourth grade, our students are here, and it is time for them to orient themselves in space and time. For this reason, Geography is introduced into the curriculum at this grade level.

This year the fourth grade is learning about the state of Utah. This is important because as they undergo the nine-year change, they are coming to a new understanding of themselves as individuals.

Additionally, we will closely examine the animal world, the closest “kingdom of nature” to the human being. Along with fractions, the study of Zoology marks a significant crossing point in your child’s life. Our focus will be what the animals teach us about being human. Through the study of the world outside of ourselves, we learn much about what lives within us.

In third grade we taught them how to survive. In fourth grade they learn to recognize the place where they are surviving.

Our day starts out with a gathering activity, something that we do together, reminding us that we all belong and are part of something beautiful.

When practicing artistic activity, children experience their own soul realm. this feeling of being caught up in the soul realm should take place in every lesson and this is why art is never separate from the lessons in the grade school.
