by: Jessica Kelmon | Updated: June 21, 2018
In fourth grade, students are starting to prepare for middle school, when nonfiction writing is practiced in all subjects.

According to the standards, students should be learning three types of writing:
Like a report, the purpose of this type of writing is to convey information accurately with facts, details, and supportive information.
These can be stories or screenplays or other fiction written in the first, second, or third person.
In opinion writing, students encourage readers to accept their opinion about something by writing what they and why.
