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 is 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.

What Are We Working On?

This week students will be learning to re-read for information. I have seen this is a weakness for many students when taking their reading tests. They simply do not take the time to go back and look for information needed to answer questions. Have your child go back and highlight information on their practice reading test this week when answering the questions to show the proof for their answer. This will make a big difference for their End-of-Grade test!

Also, we will continue to discuss Point of View this week and next. We are discussing 1st and 3rd person. The students will also be asked to determine the thoughts/feelings of the narrator. Expect this to be covered on the Friday Reading test. 

Language: Students will be working on identifying main verbs and helping verbs this week. Expect to see some practice sheets come home for review with your child. Any extra practice would be extremely helpful!

Writing: This week, students will be working on an informational writing piece about an explorer of their choice with several shorter writings periodically throughout the week.

Spelling: Students will work with plural words this week.

Social Studies: Students will take the colonial America test on Tuesday of this week. We will then begin working on identifying the major physical features of the United States.
