What’s the Key to Succeeding in 4th Grade?
Mastering the right reading skills.
Reading and writing both play a huge role in your child’s experience in 4th grade. Fourth graders need to develop strong comprehension in fiction and nonfiction and learn how to write clearly and effectively. They’re expected to master new skills throughout the school year and build the confidence they need to succeed with academic challenges.

It can be challenging – especially during the school year!
- How can you make sure your child masters core reading and writing skills?
