In the Middle Level grades, the children are thinking about what they are learning in critical and creative ways. Their developing skills begin to have practical applications and the curriculum becomes increasingly integrated.
Third and Fourth grade students use the library and the internet to do research, collaborate on long-term projects in social studies and writing, and participate in literary discussions and debates. The children are grouped by skill level for reading and mathematics. At other times, such as in social studies, math congresses, or writing workshops, the children meet as a whole group, which allows them to benefit from one another’s strengths and learning preferences. Technology skills are also integrated into many assignments.
Homework becomes more disciplined and challenging in Third and Fourth grade, and includes some long term assignments. Multiple assignments are given each evening, requiring the children to organize their time outside of the classroom, thus beginning to prepare them for the transition to middle school.
