As we fight technology for their attention, it is important to engage
and immerse young readers into literature. The most important thing
is to help them see value in reading, writing, and language in general.

Students will also start to be expected to understand the basic rules of the written and oral of the English language. At the 4th grade level students are expected to be able to write and read with purpose.
