A Seamless Transition: Moving from Grade 3 to Grade 4

Posted by BASIS.ed on August 10, 2020 at 2:00 PM

The primary school years are some of the most formative in a student’s academic and social development. However, there are some significant transitions that students must make, and be prepared for, during these years. One such transition occurs when students move from grade 3 to grade 4. In grade 3, students master basic concepts and skills, while in grade 4, students are required to think critically, problem-solve, and work independently. At BASIS Charter Schools, our primary school program focuses on building solid academic foundations while teaching and reinforcing fundamental skills, such as critical thinking, organization, and time management. By the time students finish grade 3, they have fully mastered the concepts and skills needed to make a seamless transition into grade 4.

The Transition Years

Grades 4-5 at BASIS Charter Schools

Far from the wide-eyed children they were in kindergarten, yet not quite middle schoolers experiencing a new sense of independence, students in grades 4–5 often find themselves in a state of in-between. At BASIS Charter Schools, we consider grades 4–5 to be transition years, and we scaffold our approach with students accordingly. Students begin to increase their academic independence, require less guidance from teachers, master more challenging content, and become accountable for their work. They even begin to research, plan, and revise larger projects on their own. Students in grades 4–5 at BASIS Charter Schools learn essential skills that will help them achieve success in middle school and high school.
