Fourth grade students focus on reading to learn.  Although fluency and decoding are still an important part of learning, comprehension skills become a huge part of our reading units.  Students will learn:
  • How to find text evidence
  • How to use context clues to make meaning of unknown words
  • Inference
  • Identifying main idea and important supporting details
  • Text structures
  • How to use text features to support comprehension
  • Identifying theme
  • Identifying internal character traits
