For your fourth-grader, the year ahead promises a new level of emotional self-awareness. Your child will become more independent, recognizing the separation between themselves and the surrounding world. You may notice a corresponding evolution in your child’s thought process as reasoning becomes more objective. Our fourth-grade curriculum is designed to support this new level of maturity.
For example, we study Norse myths, as they are particularly strong at imparting the gifts, and the risks, of free will. And we combine history with geography, to give your child a sense of the interrelated nature of space, time, culture, and the individual.
