Fourth graders at Scofield learn to share ideas and value friendships, which helps create concern and respect for others. They are encouraged to be independent learners, and our teachers emphasize the importance of independent study, effective time management, and organization. In fourth grade, students begin to transition from a more teacher-dependent atmosphere to a climate of self-sufficiency and independence to help carry them into upper classes at Scofield and throughout their continued educational journey. They take a deeper dive into learning how to research for projects on their individual school-issued Chromebooks.
Fourth graders attend weekly Music, Art, Music, Science, Library, Technology, Spanish, and Physical Education co-curricular classes. Teachers encourage strong values through our Honorable Character education program.
They learn responsibility through being leaders in Chapel services and taking more of a leading role in our annual performances during the Veterans Day/Grandparent's Day chapel, the Christmas program, and the spring musical.
Fourth graders learn about Texas history, and the year culminates with a trip to Austin to visit and tour the Capitol building. The service learning project in fourth grade is Shoes for Orphan Souls.
