In Mrs. Brace's class we will be studying lots of amazing things.
In fourth grade ELAR, students read and understand a wide variety of literary and informational texts and compose a variety of written texts with a clear controlling idea, coherent organization, and sufficient detail. Students will engage in activities that build on their prior knowledge and skills in order to strengthen their reading, writing and oral language skills and should read and write on a daily basis.
In Social Studies, students will examine the history of Texas from the early beginnings to the present. The historical content focuses on Texas history, including the Texas Revolution, the establishment of the Republic of Texas, and subsequent annexation to the United States. Students use critical-thinking skills to identify cause-and-effect relationships, compare and contrast, and make generalizations and predictions.
