UPDATED JULY 2017! This is not an official pacing guide, but was created after teaching 4th grade ELA. It is used as a foundation and beginning for planning in order to ensure the teaching of all standards before the end of the year. This pacing guide outlines the first three nine weeks and allots the 4th nine weeks for review of the first three nine weeks. This pacing guide is a simple outline by week with reading, writing, and language topics for each week.
