I taught grade 4 once, to a total of 12 students.  It is too bad though, because I think grade 4 has a couple really cool units.  As much as I found a jump between grades 2 and 3, I found the abilities of a grade 4 student to be an even bigger jump.  This was great, because it allowed the experiments to become more detailed.

I found that by grade 4 I the students were completely independent readers and writers, with only certain individuals needing the one on one help.  Therefore, I found the quizzes and tests could be much more independent of me.  I still read anything that I thought would be complicated out loud, and made sure to circle to check that each student understood, and was on task.

I do have marking schemes for a couple of the tests, but often I would just end up using this rubric, as it was basic enough to work for all of them.

In the first two units the student page and lesson plan numbers do not match up at the end.  Some of the lessons took more than one period, but it is easy enough to match them up.

I started my grade 4 year in October, after a re-organization.  I attempted to go back and set up the lessons that the grade 4 teachers had taught, prior to my students being placed in a split, so you should find three of the units complete.  However, the year I covered grade 4 science, I did not get through my last unit.  On the webpage you will find that not all the lessons are complete, but I have tried to include my ideas for some of the missing lessons.  I have posted everything I have.

Being that I only taught this curriculum once, there may be a few of the links on the pages that are not working properly.  Please do not hesitate to let me know.
