Grade Four

Targheeb’s resources have been designed primarily to meet Targheeb’s Prek-Grade 5 online curriculum keeping in mind Islamic values that underpin our lesson plans. The worksheets have been developed following thorough research and review of content from a variety of text.

Targheeb’s resources are available for Targheeb’s online learners, home educators or other online educational institutes that may desire to benefit from them at a very minimal charge.

As it is customary to develop learning material on an on-going basis, those who purchase resources will be eligible for updates of the same resource free of cost.

For Sri Lanka, we have a special print on demand package and would appreciate if you would write to us at admin@teduresourcesglobal.com for more details.

I would just like to thank you for you Good dedication and service you put into this home schooling site which is helping a lot of families including ours… In Maryam’s case after we took her out of school she’s been home for a whole year… and were looking for someone who can teach her in three subjects science, English, and Math.

The class was very valuable. Aasiya does not like math as she finds it difficult and has no confidence. Today, I saw a difference in her attitude due to your painstaking effort to reach each of them at their grass root level. Appreciate it much.

Grade Overview

In Grade Four, students will focus on four main areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Within these focus areas students will write, view and represent to explore thoughts, comprehend and respond personally and critically to a variety of oral and literary texts, use strategies to connect to prior knowledge, understand forms and techniques, plan and focus ideas, and represent to enhance the clarity and artistry of communication.

Areas of study include:

Spelling and vocabulary: Students will be introduced to new concepts via essential academic vocabulary. They will learn to distinguish word meanings and their uses for subject-specific academic vocabulary; tasks and prerequisite language skills; analyze words by dissecting words into their parts (prefix, root, suffix); identify homophones, synonyms, antonyms, compound words, contractions, plurals possessives, apostrophes, capitalization and punctuation review, and commas and quotation marks, identify titles, concrete and abstract nouns, ; and use context and paragraph clues and guide words.

Students will also work reviewing phonemes containing silent letters ; irregular vowel spellings, and three-letter blends, syllables, and learn to use dictionary guide words to determine the meanings and pronunciations of unknown words.

English Language Arts: Students will continue to contextualize instruction of more complex language forms, .grammatical forms; and sentence structures used in listening, speaking, reading and writing.

Students will also recognize types of sentences (declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences), sentence patterns (simple, dependent clause in each compound, complex and compound-complex) and their components (subject and predicate).

Grammar Mechanics: Students will continue to review the eight parts of speech to develop more complex writing skills. They will be expected to apply their knowledge of nouns (common and proper nouns, singular and plural nouns, singular and plural possessive nouns, concrete and abstract nouns), subject, verb tenses, helping and linking verbs, and verb agreement, subject and linking verb agreement, subject pronouns, object pronouns, possessive pronouns, similes and metaphors, adjectives that compare, adjectives that form adverbs, and adverbs that compare, prepositions, conjunctions, capitalization and punctuation (apostrophes, quotation marks, and commas), titles, symbols with numbers, bullet points, and other grammar essentials in Language Arts.
