4th GRADE SCOPE/SEQUENCE

under-construction

CHECK BACK IN AUGUST!

This is a rough outline that I created to try to follow for the 2017/2018 school year.  I wanted to be sure that I correctly and thoroughly addressed the Common Core State Standards for  Reading Foundational Skills, Reading Literature, and Reading Informational Texts.  All of the standards are represented here, and many repeat.  This guide will assist me with my Student and Teacher Assistance Team meetings, it can help me better track progress of my students, and parents can review each month's learning or prepare their child for the next month.  This may not follow exactly what the classroom teacher is doing at these exact times ~ I pull students from many different classrooms together ~ but that's okay.  All standards must be covered,  and learning does not occur in a vacuum ~ children bring in different experiences and make different connections all of the time!  :)
