Curriculum and Instruction

The teaching staff at Abraham Lincoln is highly trained. A.L.E.'s teachers have received training and use a set of skills and teacher strategies that have been identified through research as providing the most effective instruction. 

Selecting instructional objectives at the correct level of difficulty for our students is our goal. Once this has been determined, the teacher plans instruction to focus on the objective(s) being taught. An important element is to ensure active participation throughout a lesson. Teachers check frequently during the lesson to make sure students are understanding and they re-teach or make adjustments in their plan if students are having difficulty.

At Abraham Lincoln we use real-life experiences whenever possible to give students practical reasons for learning and remembering.

READING: Reading Street serves as our basal textbook.  Teachers may choose to supplement this core program with  Reading RenaissanceTM which provides students with additional hours of reading practice every week. Our children use a computerized reading management, testing, and point system called Accelerated ReaderTM.  Once children are able to read, we place them in books specifically geared to each student's independent reading zone. We encourage children to read every day and at home.  Our core reading program is scheduled for 90 minutes a day.  Each month at our Recognition Assembly children are publicly presented certificates, neck ribbons with medallions, and trophies as they move up in their reading ability.  Our hallways are lined with reading pennants to which the students affix "reading point jewels" every grading period.

WRITING, AND PENMANSHIP:   Teachers have students write daily, e.g. in their writing logs.   Sixth graders complete an in-depth research project and show off their knowledge at " Day of the Distriguished".  We teach the Zaner-Bloser Penmanship Program.

MATHEMATICS: Our adopted math series for K - 5 is Bridges.  Sixth grade student use a series called Connected Math (CMP).   These highly rigorous math programs meet Common Core expectations and guidelines. 

SCIENCE: Science is taught as a hands-on activity at all grades. Fifth graders take the OAKS math assessment.

SOCIAL STUDIES: Teachers follow district policy for Social Studies instruction.  We also incorporate several field trips and outdoor school experiences which further student learning.

FIELD TRIPS AND OUTDOOR SCHOOL EXPERIENCES There are some changes from year-to-year as each grade level selects field trips that are supportive of CCSS standards and district curriculum.
