Product Description:

English: Fourth grade units for English begin with alphabetizing and dictionary skills, word meaning and origins, and recognizing root words. Fourth graders identify antonyms, synonyms, idioms, and heteronyms as well as learn prefixes and suffixes. Please note that students will need a Webster's Collegiate Dictionary or The New Lexicon Webster's Dictionary for Unit 401. They will also begin to use a thesaurus in Unit 403. Students analyze literature, its themes, plots, and characters. They also learn to distinguish between different literature forms: fables, fantasy, legends and myths. Response to literature is introduced in Unit 406. Grammar skills such as organization of simple and compound sentences, applying regular and irregular verbs, subject-verb agreement, appositives and participial phrases are practiced. Students will also study writing skills by writing paragraphs, writing a dialogue, taking notes, doing research, and giving a speech. Cursive handwriting is also practiced (but not taught) along with phonics reinforcement.

Adding and subtracting with a number line, decimals to the hundredths place, multiply multi-digit numbers, manipulate time and measurement equations, and work with fractions and division. The student completes problems using word problems, liquid and dry measures and mastering metrics. They also learn geometry, working with rations and probability, and how to coordinate and construct graphs.

Science: Students demonstrate the importance of magnets and electricity, ecosystems and food chains, and the usefulness of plants and materials. They learn about the Earth and its changes, oceans of air, as well as wind and weather. Students will also conduct experiments and interpret data. Activities use primarily common household items.

The Gold Rush and the effects it had on California are also discussed. California history, federal, state and local government is also studied. They will also learn to identify early explorers and focus on key time periods, such as Spanish and Mexican rule. Students will organize and write a report on the history of California. ~Sara

Category Description for Starline Press Grade Level Packages:

We grouped the Starline subjects into grade level bundles for our parents who need a clear and tidy option for independent homeschooling content. They do not have religious content and are purchasable by a charter school. Each Starline subject includes 10-12 consumable worktexts and an answer key, with units averaging 24-60 pages each. We grouped the 4 core subjects by grade level for you in these bundles – English, Math, Science and Social Studies. Each bundle is for one traditional school year. Starline is a popular choice in California where they meet state standards. Each high school course in these bundles is commonly awarded one high school credit. Grades 11 and 12 have too many electives to choose from to create a suitable bundle. You can search “Starline 11” and “Starline 12” to see those options. ~Sara
