4th Grade Curriculum Choices

4th Grade Curriculum Choices

These are my 4th grade curriculum choices for my visual-spatial learner. We often use bits and pieces of many different things to come up with something that works for each child.

This is my second time doing 4th grade, but some of the curriculum choices are different because I believe it is important to personalize education.  Even though I might reuse something that I used with my older child in the same grade, I use them in a different way to match how my current 4th grader learns.
