The Britain-based monitor said the executions took place on Sunday and Monday and involved two married couples.
In both cases, the women were executed with their husbands, with each pair accused of witchcraft and sorcery.
According to the monitor, IS has executed more than 3,000 people in Syria in the year since it declared its Islamic "caliphate" in Syria and Iraq.
Nearly 1,800 of them were civilians, including 74 children.
The public execution of so-called 'magicians' and 'sorcerers' have been confirmed by ISIS.
Their media branch has previously released images of several executions in Syria and Iraq of individuals found guilty of performing 'black magic.'
Street performers, entertaining young children and passersby have been put to death for crimes of magic and sorcerers.
