Fourth Grade

During their fourth grade year at Lerner, students increase their independence as learners and thinkers.

They take ownership over their learning by making choices about how to approach and complete assignments, and by reflecting on their work. Some highlights of the fourth grade year that exemplify this shift toward independence include their joint classes with fifth grade for science and social studies, which include long term projects that incorporate extensive research and investigation, as well as deeper levels of analysis in language arts and Judaics that culminate in activities like the “great fourth grade debate.”

In math, the fourth grade students build their conceptual framework to prepare them for solving algebraic problems using reasoning that they have been developing and practicing throughout their elementary years. The fourth grade students reach milestones in Hebrew, Judaic studies and Tefillah, as they start to analyze texts more deeply in the original languages.
