Welcome to Mrs. Gouine's page!

Above is my favorite quote of all time. Reading is my passion. Books can take us places we will never go otherwise. They can also make us feel like we belong. My job as your child's teacher, it to foster a love of reading in your children they will carry with them forever.

Please use this website as an opportunity to communicate with me and have a heads up about what goes on in our classroom! If you have any suggestions on how to improve the website PLEASE do not hesitate.


Students will be working on applying all of the reading skills we have discussed this year on their book club books. As you know, students were broken down into groups based on Star Reading results and have been working on completing several chapter books they choose based on interest. The students will be making inferences, making predictions, using context clues, etc.

English/Language Arts

Students will be working on vocabulary related to the Louisiana Purchase. Their vocabulary words are : expedition, barter, compass, discovery, and cartographer.

Social Studies

Students will continue to discuss the Louisiana Purchase .We are working on finishing up our state maps. We will then be creating a Lewis and Clark journal together! From there, we will move on to Westward Expansion.

* Remember to check out to allow your students to review their new spelling words for the next week. It allows them to play fun games and even gives them a practice spelling test!

Thanks so much for visiting!
