Grade 3 - Mrs. Jessica Chant & Mrs. Tami Keyes

Language Arts: Third grade students read in whole group, small group and independently through the use of Reading Street.  Small groups are conducted several times a week.  Students read books that are related to the Reading Street story for the week.  Students also have time during the week to read independently.

Each week students create a writing piece that has the same focus as the Reading Street story.  Frequent writing practices, across a variety of situation and tasks, and in all subject areas enables students to refine and expand both their knowledge base and thinking skills.

Math: Math is taught through the use of the Envision Math program. Students have the opportunity to work in both whole and small groups. Lessons are introduced through real world experiences, using first concrete materials and then moving to the abstract.

Social Studies: Our curriculum topics include local history, geography, government and economics. Much of our focus is on the town of Campton.

Science: The specific topics that are covered are trees, water ecosystems, matter, weather changes and simple machines.

Grade 4 - Ms. Anderson & Ms. Buckley

Welcome to fourth grade! Fourth grade is always an exciting and challenging year. Students enjoy learning about many new topics and learn how to become responsible, respectful students.

Language Arts: Students are engaged in all forms of reading and writing. We use both the Reading Street series and great novels throughout the year. We read together as a whole group, in partners, in small groups and independently. Our weekly spelling words are connected with our Reading Street series. Our writing focus is to create multi-paragraph stories and essays, as well as write thoughtful  responses to questions about the literature we read.

Science: In the fall we explore concepts in Geology, such as the Earth’s composition, the Theory of Continental Drift, changes in the Earth, and rocks and minerals. In the winter we learn about energy and waves. We end our year with life science, learning about ecosystems.

Social Studies: During social studies we travel through New Hampshire’s history. We begin with the Native Americans and continue through present day New Hampshire. We also work on our mapping skills.

Math:

In Grade 4   Instructional time focuses on three critical areas: (1) developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends; (2) developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers; (3) understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry. Students practice these skills in whole group settings, independently and in small groups.
