CHC's curriculum for Fourth Grade distinguishes between core and non-core subjects. Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. Non-core subjects, such as art and map skills, can be added as time, interest, and finances allow. Visit the Fourth Grade Interactive Guide to take a subject-by-subject tour of core and non-core materials, including printable sample pages that can be used to determine grade placement!
The Fourth Grade Core Kit includes all the core materials for Fourth Grade except for math and the books studied in The Treasure Trove of Literature, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources. The recommended math and literature books are listed below along with information on where to purchase them.
