Good morning! Today I’m releasing my 4th Grade Daily Homeschool Lesson Plans!

While some times people prefer to be spontaneous, other times I think it’s better to have a plan to follow so things don’t get missed or left behind!

Planning ahead is especially important if you’re a new homeschooling. Having a good plan will help make your days less chaotic and stressful, while giving you the comfort of knowing you’ve done everything you need to do on a daily basis. And having a good plan will also allow you to be more flexible when something fun arises!

It’s my opinion that if we can conquer each day, then we’ll conquer each week. If we conquer each week, then we can make it through the month without getting off track. And eventually, by making it through each day, week, and month, we can finish the year strong knowing we’ve completed everything we need to do to move our child on to the next grade level with confidence!


I always get requests for our exact lesson plans for different grade levels, and so I’m so excited to be sharing my homeschool lesson plans with you all!  And YES, I will be releasing lesson plans for more grades coming soon!

I’ve done all of the hard work of planning and organizing your day for you, all you need to do is print them out and follow along!

These plans use the exact curriculum that we’ve used for our children, and hopefully they’ll be able to help you too! Most importantly I’m hoping my pre-made homeschool lesson plans will help you save time and stress by having all of the planning done for you!

We’ve been homeschooling for over 11 years now, and as you can imagine we’ve tried just about everything. I’ve complied our favorite curriculum in these lesson plans to help make your life a little easier and enjoyable!

What is included?

My daily lesson plans include everything you need to do to complete an entire year of fourth grade homeschooling including daily assignments for 34 full weeks of homeschool. They include daily learning activities for Art, Bible, English, Handwriting, Math, Phonics, Reading, Science, History, Spelling, Typing and Writing.

I know my exact curriculum may not work for all of you, so I’m also releasing an editable version for those of you who would like to use my lesson plans as a backbone, but be able to edit them to fit your own specific needs as well.

**These plans include main subjects to complete fourth grade level work with your student. That said, you’ll want to check with your local state homeschooling requirements to make sure you are following their requirements as states can vary.


What curriculum is used?

These lesson plans utilize the resources listed below which must be purchased separately. For your convenience I have written them out in daily lesson plan format for ease of use. You can then print the assignment booklets for you and your students to use each day, and just follow along. It’s as easy as that!

Note: You will want to keep your curriculum’s teacher’s manuals handy as a more detailed guide if there are special projects or activities included.

Tips for use:

I suggest printing the lesson plans, then having them spiral bound at an office supply store. Then students can highlight activities as they’re completed. You can also print a copy for yourself if you would like!




**PLEASE NOTE: These plans include main subjects to complete 4th grade level work with your student. That said, you’ll want to check with your local state homeschooling requirements to make sure you are following their requirements as states can vary.

Plans 4th free lesson grade

Fourth grade is the big leap from little kid to big kid. It’s a year of great strides academically, socially, and emotionally. Taking on fourth grade this year? We’ve scoured our WeAreTeachers HELPLINE group on Facebook and the web for some of the best tips and ideas for teaching 4th grade. While it by no means covers every possible topic, we hope this list of gems will inspire you, whether you are a brand new teacher or a veteran. And, we’ve organized the list by topic to make it easy to cruise for ideas!

Getting Your Classroom Ready

3. Pick an inspiring theme for your classroom.

“‘Science is Outta This World’! Do a space theme with rockets above different locations you are studying, a mad scientist mixing up a potion and vocabulary words coming out of the smoke puffs!” —Johnna M.

“The Jungle works for so many subjects, like life and how things change in time.” —Liz H.

“What about ‘Your World Matters’?” —Mindy J.

“The Rainforest!” —Ann M.

“‘Heroes All Around Us’ with monthly featured ‘heroes,’ both famous and local.” —Ashley M.

4. Try different classroom layouts.

7. Introduce yourself creatively.

Make day one memorable by introducing yourself in a creative way, such as sending postcards over the summer! For 10 creative ideas, click here.

8. Make big plans!

Students write down their plans and display on a wall.

We love this start-of-year activity from Write On, Fourth Grade! Start by reading Big Plans by Bob Shea and Lane Smith. Then on construction paper, have students create their own plans for fourth grade, for their school career, and for adulthood. Hang ‘em up and label the wall “Our Big Plans!”

9. Establish an anti-bullying culture from day one with resources from Kid Pointz.

Download free and kid-centric anti-bullying printables from Kid Pointz to help your students understand the importance of avoiding peer pressure and handling bullies constructively.

“I also went to the dollar store and got these cute little ‘pledge’ cards that kids can sign at the beginning of the year to pledge that they won’t bully each other and will report bullying when they see it. It’s a great way to start the year!” —Jen B.

10. Establish a culture of kindness.

Free kindness posters

Print these free, downloadable posters to remind your students that kindness matters most of all.

11. Build your students’ social-emotional skills.

Teaching 4th grade means building SEL skills. Use these read-alouds to talk about everything from kindness to courage to trying your best.

12. Create classroom jobs for your students.

Here are some creative ideas from our teacher community: tech support, environmental support, organizer, textbook coordinator, sanitation engineer, librarian, substitute, chief in charge, messenger, paper passer, supply clerk, IT technician, human resources officer, administrative assistant, waste management.

13. Make a class time capsule.

At the beginning of the year, have the students write down their thoughts, expectations, goals, feelings, and predictions. Put them all in a decorated jar, seal it up, and then read them all in the last week of school!

14. Keep your students linked into the big picture of the lesson

Anchor chart that shows how teachers use lesson plans.

We love this kid-friendly version of a teacher’s lesson plans. Put day-specific “Today I am…” “So that I can…” and “I’ll know I’ve got it if…” posters on your board.

15. Out with boring worksheets! Engage your fourth graders with:

  • “Thinking maps that students create.” —Aimee V.

  • “Foldables. Check out Dinah Zikes for ideas!” —Dianne K.

Anchor chart for teachers about context clues

We love this anchor chart.

22. Teach the difference between literal and figurative meanings through writing and drawing.

Take sentences from your class’s current text that use figurative language and have students (literally!) illustrate and explain the difference in the literal and figurative meanings of the expressions.

23. Try a vocabulary activity. Or 15!

Use RAFTs, try vocabulary Jeopardy, and more with these vocabulary activities.

Ideas for Math

24. Practice math skills with the most mathematical icebreaker ever.

This is a great first-day-of-school activity that doubles as both an icebreaker and a math review of last year’s skills. Students create a poster of math equations representing different aspects of who they are, and then they can get to know each other by solving the problems. Bonus: You’ll have instant wall art for Back-to-School Night! From Fourth Grade Fun in Florida

25. Reinforce prime numbers with a fun card game.

Prime numbers become instantly cool when you use them to win this card game from Education.com! Download the activity for free here.

26. Learn about area and perimeter with robots!

Example of using robots for students to calculate perimeter.

How fun are these ’bots? Students apply their understanding of area and perimeter by creating different robots based on mathematical specifications provided to them.

27. Focus on fractions.

If it’s not math fluency, it’s fractions. The better understanding fourth graders have of fractions, the better off they’ll be when the quantities get more complicated or the operations get sophisticated. We really love this poolnoodle fractions hack for teaching 4th grade.

28. Watch videos.

It’s much more fun to teach multiplication and division when you’re watching a video!

29. Teach the dreaded word problem.

Word Problems WeAreTeachers

Science is the perfect subject for kids to get down and dirty. Try these 30 fourth grade science projects  for inspiration.

32. Try daily STEM challenges.

Four printout note cards for 4th Grade STEM Challenges

These STEM challenges are designed with your fourth graders in mind. Try one each day or each week to get their minds thinking outside the box.

33. Teach the plant life cycle!

Plant life cycle is always a fun science unit. You get to talk about growing, planting, and nature. Plus, students love digging in and getting their hands dirty when they plant a seed themselves.

34. Teach electricity.

It’s electrifyingly good fun! Shock them with these science experiments!

35. Explore animal habitats.

Animal Habitat activities

Ready to explore animal habitats around the world, from rainforests to deserts and everything in between? These fun activities are just what you’re looking for. Take a walk on the wild side!

Ideas for Social Studies

36. Try social studies inquiry circles.

Address the required standards through inquiry-based learning! Here’s a how-to guide from the One Stop Teacher Shop. Watch your kids sink their teeth into the “thick versus thin” concept, and the Work Plan Form will help students take control of their own learning.

37. Learn about heroes.

Read biographies about famous people in history. Match books to holidays, like Presidents’ Day or Black History Month.

38. Use online learning.

There are some amazing websites out there for teaching social studies lessons. Check out our 50+ favorites.

39. Take a field trip.

Fourth grade field trips

The independence of nine- and ten-year-olds, coupled with grade-level focus on their state, makes for lots of fantastic options for fourth grade field trips.

Ideas for Classroom Organization

40. Check homework, three ways …

1. “Pick what’s most important about the lesson, not the small details, and grade that way. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar. The important thing is, did they understand the content?” —Megan P.

2. “For my gradebook, students receive credit for returning homework completed. I go around and mark them off, then I put the answers up and students correct it themselves. I then go over any problems that the students request for me to explain.” —Montoya M.

3. “I have a box of clothespins with each kid’s name on them. They clip their pin to their homework and drop it into the homework file up front. It’s easy to tell who didn’t hand in homework because you just take a glance at the remaining clothespins! I set a two-minute timer for them to complete this so it doesn’t take too long, and my fourth graders do it in no time! You just have to practice and train them. Make a game out of ‘beating the timer’ without pushing or shoving.” —Jamie S.

41. Set up interactive, exciting centers in your classroom.

Having centers, or workstations, in your fourth grade classroom allows students to work independently.

“When introducing a new independent activity, I usually do it in small groups first, so when put in the independent stations, they are able to do it without my help.” —Carol V.

“I have center folders that students keep their work in, and at the end of the cycle of centers, I grade the work as 100, 80, or 60 based upon what’s done and the quality. I give one center grade for each cycle.” —Gary F.

Ideas for Classroom Management

42. STOP in the name of class.

Teachers use these STOP sign shape tags to STOP certain behavior.

We love this method of letting a student know his behavior is off-task—without interrupting the flow of the lesson. Hand one of these to a student who needs a reminder to focus and you’ll be in the clear. Click here for free printables from Rock and Teach to make your own!

43. Establish classroom community in the first days of school with heart maps.

Blank heart map for teachers and students.

Your fourth graders can express what matters most to them by illustrating and writing in these heart maps. Download a free template from Fourth Grade Lemonade.

44. Affirm them daily.

Teacher uses a sticky note to send daily affirmation to students.

We love this idea of leaving positive sticky notes for kids every day to encourage them and let them know you’re behind them 100 percent!

45. Teach students the art of note-taking.

Anchor chart featuring best ways to take notes.

Fourth grade is a wonderful level for students to begin taking their own notes. Using a handy anchor chart will help remind them of the different approaches to note-taking they can use.

46. Get the wiggles out.

Collage of screenshots of videos for Fourth Grade Brain Breaks

Even grown-ups can’t sit still and listen all day! Get your kids up and moving with awesome  fourth grade brain breaks .

47. Reward positive classroom behavior with fun coupons.

Students Use Magnets for Location

These little magnets make managing your class easy. Add in any typical places your kiddies may go on a given day.

Other Ideas

49. Have a sense of humor.

Teaching fourth grade requires a sense of humor, both for yourself and your students. Poetry from Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky hit right at fourth graders’ funny bones. Or try one of our fourth grade jokes to start the day .

From math to science, a wide variety of free 4th grade lesson plans can be easily found online! You can also make classes more exciting for 9 – 10 year olds by engaging them with our fun 4th grade activities and worksheets.

Here are some interesting teaching resources for fourth graders to get the learning started.

Free, Fun and Printable Lesson Plans for 4th Graders

Designing a lesson plan for 4th grade can be slightly tricky. The first aspect that homeschooling parents and teachers need to consider is the standards and milestones that 4th graders need to achieve by the end of the academic year. As concepts and problems get tougher, some 4th graders might find themselves lagging behind. Revising old concepts and adding additional practice material in the lesson plans is, therefore, essential.

While drafting the lesson plans for 4th graders, parents and teachers should also think about how they will present their material. Engaging the kids and encouraging their participation will help 4th graders understand and retain the content better. You can also go through our 4th grade resources to add some fun to your classes!
