4th Grade

Fostering Creativity; Applying Skills to Real‑World Problems

4th grade offers exciting learning opportunities

Our 4th Grade curriculum provides opportunities for students to exercise their creativity — writing original compositions, applying their growing math and science knowledge in innovative ways, and more.

With differentiation tips built into each lesson, you’ll be able to adjust instruction to your child’s unique abilities. Using our detailed Lesson Manuals as your guide, you’ll help your child:

  • Learn and apply the essential elements of explanatory/argumentative writing – from presenting evidence to constructing an effective, grammatically correct paragraph.
  • Apply the properties of light, energy, and waves and a knowledge of Earth processes to solve real-world problems.
  • Explore the ancient cultures of North America and our nation’s history from its founding through the Civil War period.
  • Learn the basics of geometry and solve problems involving simple fractions, decimals, and units of measurement.

For students who struggle with reading, we also offer our specialized Verticy ELA course.

Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.

We used Calvert for 4th and 5th grade for our son and could not have been more pleased. All of the Lesson Manuals were extremely easy to follow and understand. Since it was our first time homeschooling, I was nervous that I would miss something or wouldn’t teach my son everything that he needed to know for those grades. Once I saw Calvert’s program, I knew that I didn’t have to worry.
