Homeschooling Fourth Grade
Using Simple Workbooks…
I love using fourth-grade workbooks in our homeschool – especially for those pesky summer months to help avoid the summer slide.
However, workbooks can also double as a great aide during the homeschool year as well!
You can easily homeschool fourth grade with the use of a good solid homeschool curriculum and fourth-grade workbooks.

Why Use Fourth Grade Workbooks?
Fourth grade is an important year of growth for most youngsters! This is the time that independent learning really starts to kick in and many homeschool kids can begin the process of self-teaching.
For the longest time workbooks were only a summer thing in our home. However, in recent years I’ve started leaning on them more and more during the school year. Here’s why…
As children get older, their needs change. I love workbooks during the school year for encouraging independent learning time and for teaching secondary subjects. Workbooks are also an awesome choice for summer learning to avoid any type of learning setback.

Fourth Grade Learning Activities
When I homeschooled my fourth-grader, we were actually doing online public school, which left little room for extras. However, we have since switched gears and I now homeschool my children with the use of a simple homeschool curriculum (and yes, sometimes even workbooks!).
I truly look forward to each grade with my youngest and her fourth-grade homeschool year is only 2 short years away! It seems crazy to think that we are already this far in our homeschool journey!
Since homeschooling fourth-grade isn’t one I’m completely familiar with I took the opportunity to connect with a fellow homeschool blogger to offer these additional fourth-grade resources below!
