The revised 4th Grade Curriculum Manual assumes the continuation of D'Aulaire's Greek Myths, Latina Christiana I, Christian Studies I, States & Capitals and English Grammar Recitation I. The package is assuming a continuation from the 3rd grade. If you are starting in the curriculum at this point, you may want to look at the "Accelerated 4th Grade Curriculum Guide" instead (see website). Story of the World Vol. 1 is suggested as summer reading.
Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study. The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use. Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now
Accelerated curriculum guides are available from Memoria Press for families who wish to move at a faster pace than the Classical Core Curriculum pace.If you begin at the Accelerated Pace and find it too difficult, it is possible to transition to the Classical Core Curriculum.
Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.
