Welcome to Fourth Grade at Thomas!
Thomas fourth graders explore a world of learning with many new and fun activities. Fourth grade teachers feel Language Arts is the key used to unlock the door to a lifelong love of reading. We use novels, research, and multimedia activities to establish this love for reading. Fourth graders also learn to express their ideas and feelings through creative writing. In Social Studies, we learn about Texas history and the development of our wonderful state. Experiments add to our fun and help us explore physical, earth, and life sciences. This year in math our children master their multiplication facts and dive into 2 digit times 2 digit multiplication. Students learn division as well as other real world problem solving concepts. Fourth grade classes are departmentalized so that students have two teachers. Mrs. Longmire (math/sci) and Mrs. Kittley (ELAR/ss) are on one team and Mrs. Southerland (ELAR/ss) and Mrs. Mayhall (math/sci) are on the other.
