Calvert’s comprehensive curriculum materials include everything you need for a full year of teaching.
Idea Expression and Scientific Discovery
Our 4th Grade curriculum provides opportunity for students to exercise their creativity by writing original compositions. Students are also given the opportunity to delve into new topics in science and technology. The reading curriculum relies on classic children’s literature and poetry, with lessons designed to increase comprehension, appreciation, and analysis.
Two different math options are available with our 4th Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students learn fluency and accuracy in four operations, multiply and divide three digits, understand mixed numbers, tackle probability, add and subtract decimals, and begin studying geometry or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students compare and order numbers up to 100,000, use rounding and front-end estimation, find the mean, median, and mode of a data set, and determine the probability of an event.
4th Grade students will gain exposure to more technology, while they learn to use spreadsheets and create tables, charts, and graphs. Life science and physical science units are also covered in 4th Grade. Students will discover topics such as electricity and magnetism.

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.— Brodie G., Calvert Mom
