Fourth graders' English language arts skills grow immensely this year. To reflect Common Core State Standards, there are well over 1,000 different professional tools available in the Learning Library that support teachers in delivering quality ELA lessons throughout the year. Select from an ever-growing blend of helpful lesson plans, interactive hands-on activities, exciting games, and more.

All-Encompassing Resources on English Language Arts for Fourth Graders

Students at this age are required to draw inferences from nonfiction and fiction texts, determine the central theme of a story, and sharpen their summarization abilities. They will take a microscope to characters, inspect the setting, and learn to read between the lines. Students also dig into the craft of writing and explore its different forms such as poetry and prose. They will learn the difference between first- and second-person and challenge themselves to look at the situation from a different point of view. In addition, fourth graders grow their comparing and contrasting skills and enhance grammar abilities.

Education.com provides a hearty mix of lesson plans, printable worksheets, online games, hands-on activities, and more that educators can easily browse. A few notable resources include: Fiction vs. Nonfiction, which teaches fourth graders how to contrast real and fantasy texts and It’s All in the Personality: Character Traits, which is a lesson that examines people's unique makeup. There are always new assignments added so lessons never become dull for kids or teachers. The Learning Library's resources ensure fourth graders rise to their ELA expectations.
