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?

Reading: Students will be working on problem and solution this week under the genre Realistic Fiction. Realistic fiction simply means a fiction (not real) story that could be real. The characters, setting, and events are all real-life rather than the imaginary characters, setting, and events we find in fairy tales. We will also continue to review Making Predictions which was our skill from last week.

Language: Students will be working to understand subjects and predicates.

Writing: This week, students will discuss ideas in writing. Students will be working on a Native American journal piece and also a friendly letter.

Social Studies: Students will enhance their understanding of Native Americans and how they use their environment to obtain food, clothing, and shelter. We will discuss the Pawnee, Kwakiutl, Inuit, Seminole, and Nez Perce in our explorations. This week we will just be working with Pawnee. The Pawnee were Plains Indians who were nomadic Indians traveling along with the movement of the buffalo.
