Our goal for the fourth grade students of Wilson School is to ease them into a new level of academic learning. It is a pivotal transitional year emotionally and socially as well as educationally. We strive to be a positive influence and role model as they mature into young adulthood. We will shape their learning through teaching methods and strategies such as differentiation which reaches the visual, auditory and sensory learner. The students will be challenged to think on a higher level which will initiate critical thinking and decision making. The goal for our students is to have an enriching experience in the fourth grade.
