Welcome Brainy Bulldogs to 4th Grade!  People Holding Hands Around The World.png

 

My name is Ms. Renee Fisher, and I am super excited to be teaching 4th grade this year at Shady Brook! This is my third year at the Brook, and they have all been in 4th grade! I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and all of my family still resides there. I live in Mooresville with my 2 wonderful Morkie puppies, Akiya and Alliyah. I love doing anything outdoors, especially going to the beach, hiking and running! I am thrilled to be a part of Shady Brook's amazing family, and I'm sure we will have an awesome and productive school year!


College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

 University of Tampa with a degree in Elementary Education with ESL concentration
          

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

I believe each and every child we teach can be successful, no matter what it takes. Everyone has different learning styles, so I approach each concept we learn in many different ways. I am an extremely creative person, so I often ask my students "outside the box" questions that require them to turn on those areas deep inside their brains. I expect my students to not just answer questions but justify and support their answers. My goal is that all of my students leave 4th grade as responsible, respectful and eager learners who are ready to tackle whatever life throws at them!


What's Going on in Our Classroom?

IN MATH: We have finished place value and did an EXCELLENT job! Many of us accepted the challenge of going for an E on place value skills and were successful! WAY TO GO! This month, we are working on larger multiplication problems. We have several strategies we learned to solve these, and we have been practicing!

IN LITERACY: We are reviewing main idea and details using a book of our choice form the library. We will also continue to review summarizing and theme within our small groups and D-Block. We are also learning about point of view and will begin inferencing shortly!

IN SCIENCE: We are learning about rocks and minerals. We will be learning about fossils also!

IN SOCIAL STUDIES: We are learning about the government of North Carolina and how it works!
IN WRITING: We are publishing our personal narratives. Our next writing piece will be an opinion piece where we tell what we think on a certain topic and support it using facts.

* We have also discussed the rules and expectations for us as safe, respectful, responsible and encouraging Bulldogs. This will set us up for a great, successful year!
