12 Ways To Boost 4th Grade Reading Comprehension
Make it fun, make it interesting.
By the time students reach the fourth grade, they have mastered the basics of phonics and decoding and are starting to dig deeper into understanding what they’re reading. It’s a great time to introduce learning strategies that will help them be lifelong readers. Here are a dozen ways to boost fourth grade reading comprehension.
1. Color-code your thinking
Taking notes and highlighting reading passages with color can help students differentiate, retain, and transfer knowledge as well as pay attention to critical information for meaningful learning. Teach your students to use colors to highlight passages as they read to help them identify features such as main idea, details and vocabulary words. Or use different colors to mark different sections of a graphic organizer.

2. Try think-alouds
Another way to improve fourth grade comprehension is through think-alouds. While reading a text to students, share the questions and answers that are going through your mind. For example, “How does the story make you feel?”

3. Watch a story-elements rap video
You know how they say setting learning to music helps improve retention? Well, with this story-elements rap video, kids will find themselves chanting the chorus long after they watch it. And if rap’s not your thing, check out this list of Our Favorite YouTube Videos for Teaching Story Elements.
4. Play a round of reading comprehension Jenga
Who doesn’t love a rousing game of Jenga? The careful strategy in picking just the right block … the rush of successfully pulling out a block … the loud crash of the whole tower tumbling down!

It is vitally important for all students to be able to use context clues to determine the definitions of unknown words. This poster and lesson plan from Crafting Connections will give your students the strategies they need to be a word detective.
7. Find creative ways to respond to reading
Image source: An Educator’s Life
Gone are the days of the dreaded, old-fashioned, stand-in-front-of-the-class and read your boring book report. How about making a mint-tin book report? Or a book report cake? Or a mobile made from a clothes hanger or a paper bag book report? These are just a few of the Creative Ways Kids Can Respond to Books we’ve rounded up to get your students excited about reading.
8. Learn about close-reading strategies
Image source: D Lu on Pinterest
Close reading is defined as “an intensive analysis of a text in order to come to terms with what it says, how it says it, and what it means.” And research shows that teaching students how to close-read helps them become better readers. The trick is spicing it up so that students apply close-reading skills without getting bored. Here are Innovative Teacher Ideas for Teaching Close Reading.
9. Create anchor charts together
From marking a text to visualizing to understanding a character’s journey, we’ve got the fourth grade reading comprehension anchor charts for you! Choose from dozens of colorful samples for you to build along with your students during direct instruction time.
10. Introduce figurative language

Figurative language—things like metaphors, similes, and onomatopoeia—make reading more colorful and interesting. Understanding figurative language is a complex literacy skill that will stretch your students’ understanding. Center your lessons around these fantastic figurative language anchor charts .
11. Focus on theme
Image source: Upper Elementary Snapshots
To fully explore theme, students must be able to understand what they read and then extract ideas from the text. Here are essential tips for teaching theme in language arts .
12. Read between the lines
Learning to make inferences is a key literacy skill and something all good readers do. When students pause while they are reading to ask questions and make connections, it strengthens their comprehension. For more on this topic, visit Teaching With a Mountain View .

4th Grade Literacy Centers
Are you running centers in your classroom or are they running you?! If you want some fresh ideas for 4th Grade literacy centers, you’ve come to the right place.
I taught 4th grade for several years, and these are some of the literacy centers I’ve used in my classroom. Here you will find literacy activities for spelling, word work / sight word practice, reading comprehension, writing, and more.

Literacy instruction includes vocabulary, spelling, sight word practice, writing, reading comprehension and fluency.
One of the best ways to teach all of the skills involves using literacy centers or literacy work stations.
Here are some ideas for literacy centers from my 4th-Grade classroom.
4th Grade Literacy Center for Spelling Practice: Emoji Spelling
One literacy skill that I strive to target through my centers is spelling.
Engaging and interesting work leads to more impactful learning, so make your literacy centers fun!
I added a twist to this spelling literacy center by making it “emoji-themed,” which keeps this activity fun for students. Here’s how it works:
- Students write the words with “emoji-code.”
- They switch papers with someone to “crack their code” by writing the spelling words.
I have NEVER had a 4th-grader complain about practicing their spelling words with this literacy center idea!
I do not “grade” this worksheet, but I require my students to turn in their literacy centers worksheets for accountability.
Seeing their work also helps me gauge which students are improving their skills through literacy centers practice.
Literacy Work Station Sight Word Practice: Four in a Row
To continue building my students’ reading fluency, I have several games and activities geared toward sight word practice.
One of them is the Four in a Row Board Game.
This fourth-grade literacy center requires playing with a partner.
- Flip over a sight word card to read out loud.
- If you have the matching word on your board, cover that space.
- The first person to get four words in a row wins that round.
I designed this center to spiral through different levels of sight words.
It’s also important to me that students have the option to work independently or with a partner, so this center can be used for both.
Recognizing words fluently leads to stronger reading comprehension skills. This game targets their word identification abilities during literacy practice time.
Writing Literacy Center Idea: Spin and Write
Finding time for student writing in the classroom continues to be an on-going challenge.
Jazzing up the fun factor on any assignment motivates students to participate and get involved more.
Since my kiddos love spinners as much as they do emojis, I incorporated them with this literacy center writing activity.
I purchased these clear, durable spinners here.
Students use the spinners to land on a wheel that has nouns and verbs. Then they write a sentence using one noun and one verb that they land on.
This writing center helps me to see my students’:
- Understanding of grammar.
- Potential difficulties with forming complete sentences.
- Subject-verb agreement.
- Spelling and Handwriting
Literacy Work Station for Root Words, Prefixes, and Suffixes: The Word Maker
Upper elementary students need effective strategies for understanding multi-syllabic words and word family relationships.
Using graphic aids and visual organizers offer students a non-intimidating way to practice word parts. That’s why the The Word Maker literacy center comes in “word triangles.”
Here are the details for this 4th-grade literacy center:
- Students are given a root word or word part.
- They add prefixes and suffixes to make longer words.
- As an extra challenge, they use the new words they created in sentences. (MORE writing practice! YES!)
I laminate the triangles so that students can write with dry erase markers. (Instead of the normal sized Expo markers, we use these. They are more colorful and they’re washable.)
More Literacy Center Ideas for Fourth-Grade
Did you see an idea in this post that piqued your interest?
I LOVE ❤️ using stations to review and practice ELA and reading with 4th Graders. So, I could go on and on for days with this topic!
This video shows more details for you:
How Long Should Centers Be in 4th Grade?
Planning centers for upper elementary is impossible without considering time frames.
However, when it comes to how long Grade 4 centers should be, it depends on so many factors.
My sweet spot is around 90 minutes, which allows students to spend a minimum of 25 minutes at 3 different literacy stations.
25 x 3 = 75, which leaves you with 15 minutes for transitions, set-up, and clean-up time.
If you don’t have that much time to devote to your literacy block, don’t despair.
One year, all I had was one 45 minute block. My 4th graders that year got two 15-minute literacy activities with a cushion of 10 minutes for transition and prep.
Planning Your 4th Grade Stations
As you plan out how long your centers should be for 4th grade, keep these things in mind:
- Amount of total students you have
- How long your students need to transition (the more you model and prepare them for centers, the less transition time they need)
- Whether you’re going to use fixed groups or choice boards to manage your centers.
Not only will the answers to these areas help you map out the time-frame for your stations, but it will make center planning in general easier.
“How Do You Organize a Literacy Center?” More F.A.Q’s
I get so many questions about how I set up literacy centers in my classroom. Here are a few of the main ones:
- Are you self-contained? No. I teach Language Arts & Social Studies and I have a co-teacher who teaches Math & Science. We share the same full class of 4th graders, but we each have our “homeroom” group. Our students switch classes, and our classrooms are right across the hall from each other.
- How many students are in each group? I do not allow more than 4 students per literacy center. In fact, all of the centers mentioned above really only allow 2 students working on that center at a time.
- So how do you “group” your students? I start off the year by assigning fixed groups of 3-4 students and I MODEL behavior and procedures like crazy! But then I train my students to choose their own centers using Choice Boards. I have an entire detailed post on how I use choice boards HERE.
- Do you have fixed stations? My classroom layout isn’t big enough for literacy centers to be in the same spot, so I only use centers that students can grab and move around the room to different locations. This also helps control the number of kids completing each center. The only literacy center that stays put is my Technology Center where I have 4 desktop computers. Our school has one iPad cart for all the 3rd-5th grade teachers to share, and I also keep this center stationary so that I can keep a close eye on my students while they’re using the iPads.
A Detailed Guide Book for Planning Your 4th Grade Literacy Centers
Although the questions and answers above give a glimpse into how I set up and run literacy centers in my class, they are just scratching the surface!
There are so many details to keep in mind.
I wrote a quick guide with detailed answers to these questions PLUS literacy center planning pages for teachers.
This guide walks you through setting up centers and details this info:
- How to choose “groups” for your centers?
- A breakdown of different time frames and what to do for your literacy block during those time frames.
- Details on the best ways to differentiate your centers.
- Knowing whether to switch out your centers each week or not.
- Options on how to help students choose a center OR setting up fixed student groups.
I know how overwhelming it can be to get centers going in the classroom when you have a million other things to consider and do as a teacher!
Hopefully the ideas and info from this post can get the ball rolling for you.
The series of posts listed at the top also have ideas and tips for literacy centers.
As an added bonus, the blog post below (in the image) tells you everything you need to know if you’re new to teaching 4th grade.
Happy Teaching 🙂
This was a great read and thank you for sharing! Looking forward to using the activities in my class.

4th Grade Reading Intervention Activities
Reading intervention is a critical component of elementary education, especially for 4th grade students who are expected to read and comprehend complex texts. As a highly trained teacher with a focus on reading fundamentals, I have found that implementing effective intervention strategies can make a significant difference in how struggling readers progress. In this article, I will share specific techniques and resources that can help elementary teachers create a supportive and engaging learning environment for their 4th-grade students who need reading intervention.
Implementing Effective Reading Intervention
Implementing effective reading intervention requires careful planning and consideration of each student's needs. Teachers can use a variety of strategies to support struggling readers in the 4th grade classroom. Here are some examples:
- Personalized Learning: Personalized learning is an approach that tailors instruction to meet each student's unique needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Teachers can use a variety of tools such as diagnostic assessments, adaptive software, and one-on-one conferences to identify each student's specific reading needs and develop a plan to address them.
- Comprehension Strategies: Supporting comprehension is an essential aspect of reading intervention. Teachers can use read-alouds, graphic organizers, and close reading strategies to help students develop their comprehension skills. For example, using graphic organizers such as story maps can help students visualize the structure of a text and make connections between key elements.
- Technology Integration: Technology can be a valuable tool to enhance reading intervention for struggling 4th-grade readers. Teachers can use online resources such as Newsela, Epic!, and ReadWorks to provide students with leveled texts and interactive activities that support their reading skills. They can also use digital tools such as interactive whiteboards, audio books, and reading apps to engage students and reinforce reading concepts.
- Phonics-Based Intervention: Phonics is an essential component of reading instruction, especially for struggling readers. Teachers can use a variety of phonics-based intervention strategies such as word sorts, phonics games, and word-building activities to help students develop their decoding skills. For example, using word sorts, where students sort words according to specific spelling patterns, can help them identify common patterns and apply them to new words.
- Graphic Novels: Graphic novels can be a valuable tool to engage struggling readers in the 4th grade classroom. These books combine visual and textual elements, making them accessible to students who may struggle with traditional text-based books. Teachers can use graphic novels to teach literary elements, such as plot and character development, and help students build their vocabulary and comprehension skills.
Reading intervention is an essential component of elementary education, especially for struggling readers in the 4th grade. By implementing effective strategies such as personalized learning, comprehension strategies, technology integration, phonics-based intervention, and graphic novels, teachers can create a supportive and engaging learning environment that helps students improve their reading skills. By using a variety of techniques and resources, teachers can help every student reach their full potential as readers.

Educational Activities and Teaching Resources for 4th Grade
Welcome to fourth grade! Whole numbers are easy at this point—fractions are what separate the true mathematicians from the beginners. (This is not true, but hopefully your fourth graders feel that way). In fourth grade, students will build on the multiplication and division skills mastered in the previous year to solve more complex problems using a variety of strategies. Pattern recognition is emphasized and place value is revisited. Students can now fluently add and subtract large numbers, compare fractions and decimals, and begin applying operations to those numbers. Various units of measurement are explored and angles and lines serve as the primary themes for most geometry work.
Is there anything more rewarding than listening to your fourth grader give a mini dissertation on a new topic they just read about for the first time? Expertise is born in books. Most fourth grade-level readers are moving beyond basic consumption of text toward deeper levels of understanding and connection. Students will be developing the ability to infer much more than they have in the past and integrate information from multiple sources to build background knowledge on various subjects. eSpark's fourth grade reading content is focused primarily on Reading Literature and Reading Informational skills, with an emphasis on not just understanding text, but also synthesizing and using the information.
Some of the skills students will master in eSpark include:
- Understanding multiplicative comparisons and distinguishing them from additive comparisons
- Solving multi-step, whole-number word problems using all four operations
- Learning how to use letters as stand-ins for unknown quantities
- Identifying patterns and implicit features of patterns
- Using place value to round multi-digit whole numbers
- Reading and writing multi-digit whole numbers using numerals, number names, and expanded form
- Fluently adding and subtracting multi-digit whole numbers
- Multiplying multi-digit numbers with place value, properties of multiplication, and arrays
- Explaining equivalent fractions and comparing fractions
- Adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers
- Understanding decimals
- Referring to details and examples when explaining what the text says and describing elements in depth
- Drawing inferences from text
- Determining the meaning of words and phrases based on origin and context
- Explaining the differences between poems, drama, and prose and identifying structural elements of each
- Comparing and contrasting point of view and firsthand vs. secondhand accounts
- Determining the main idea of nonfiction text and the theme of a story, drama, or poem
- Describing structure using chronological, cause/effect, and problem/solution language
- Interpreting information presented in non-text formats like charts, graphs, and web elements
- Understanding and explaining author logic and evidence
