Book List

Book List for Individual Studies, Grade 4

Language Arts

Students progress in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and English usage guidelines using the literary passages presented in Spelling Wisdom, Book 1, and the guided discovery lessons in Using Language Well, Book 1. The first half of these books was covered in grade 3, the rest is completed this year.

Written narration is introduced to encourage your student to begin capturing his thoughts on paper and applying guidelines he has learned about English usage and mechanics. Rubrics and further instructions are provided in the Using Language Well, Book 1, Teacher Guide and Answer Key to help with this process.

Science

Use any of the SCM living science courses—such as Learning about Birds with Thornton Burgess or Jack’s Insects and its corresponding narration notebook—and feel free to combine your children in grades 1–6. These plans will remind you when to do the next science lesson and keep you moving at an enjoyable pace, with some catch-up days included. Journaling a Year in Nature is recommended for nature study.

Math & Typing

Lessons include reminders to work on your choice of math curriculum and typing program.
