Course Description

Welcome to 4th grade English Language Arts! This multi-unit course covers all major topics taught in most 4th grade English classes across North America. In 4th grade English, students should have a strong foundation in word sense, prefixes, suffixes, root words, figurative language, sentence formation, different reading genres, and writing for different purposes. This course emphasizes how building a foundation on word sense can lead to better reading comprehension, more effective sentence, paragraph, and essay formation, and prepares students for all subjects.

The course consists of 40 video lessons, worksheets, worksheet review videos, and quizzes. Each video lesson is about 10-12 minutes in length. Students can take notes while listening during each lesson. Students complete a practice worksheet to apply what they learned for extended practice. The worksheet review video covers the answers on the practice worksheet and serves as a comprehension check for each lesson. At the end of each lesson, there is a 2-question quiz to check for the students' understanding. This course allows students to interact with the course content through quick and engaging videos while providing them with additional extended practice outside of the video lesson.

This course includes:

4 Units

40 Video Lessons

40 Practice Worksheets (students check their answers during the review video)

40 Activity/Worksheet Review Videos (I go over each worksheet answer step by step)

36 Weeks of Spelling Lists

1 Reading List (Over 40 books listed)
