At Lincoln School we strive to be student-centered and learning-focused. Our goal is to develop potential – intellectual, physical, social, and emotional – using a methodology that nurtures each child’s learning style, personality, talents and cultural heritage.

The learning experiences in the Grade 1 core classes include the following areas of focus:

Literacy Program

Reading

Read Aloud: We read fiction and non-fiction. We vary genre, author, format and style. Most importantly we read quality children’s literature that the children can connect with and use to practice comprehension strategies.

Third grade marks the transition period between the primary and the intermediate level in the elementary school. One of the major changes you and your child will discover is the emphasis on becoming an independent student. Your child will also be “reading to learn” instead of “learning to read”. Across the entire curriculum, reading comprehension is key to your child’s educational success.

A Look at Learning:

Among grade level transitions in the elementary school, the jump from Third to Fourth Grade may be the most challenging and exciting. The level of independence and organization is much greater than students experienced in the lower elementary grades. Additionally, Fourth Grade students can begin to see and wrap their minds around big issues, and are often being able to plan big world-changing ideas. However they do not yet quite know how to deal with the pressures of smaller, everyday worries. Fourth Grade is a year in which the children take great strides in recognizing the world around them, and begin defining the part they play on the world stage. It’s an exciting year of learning, change, and growth!

A Look at Learning:

Grade 5 is an important year of growth and transition. Students are made ready for the promotion to middle school and the expectations of these later years. Academics provide students with the knowledge and abilities to skillfully and successfully maneuver through the complexities of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. An important aspect of Grade Five is the integration of technology and the arts throughout the curriculum.

Philosophy:

During the three years of learning French in elementary school, students will acquire the fundamental elements of this language in order to build a basic communication ability. It is the first stage of this linguistic process which will continue beyond school. Students will thus strengthen their cultural sensitivity and intercultural awareness as it is essential to give everyone the chance to become a world citizen by mastering more than one modern language.

A Look at Learning in Elementary Physical Education


PHILOSOPHY: The Physical Education Program for Primary 1 through Grade 5 is based on the Movement Education Model. It is designed with the idea that children learn through moving, problem solving and using their own creativity. An environment is provided for children to move at their own level of development, in a safe and secure space, while using various pieces of small- hand apparatus and then large apparatus. Students eventually create movement patterns that become the basic skills of every team sport: throwing, catching, kicking, and striking. Their discoveries are then shared with their classmates using the “show and try model” which allows one child to demonstrate and the other children to try. This eventually enables children to move in groups of two, three and four, relating to one another and the task at hand. Students also create movement patterns that are basic to individual physical pursuits: rolling, rocking, hanging, climbing, and jumping.


During the swimming season in the fall and in the spring of the year, activities become more teacher directed due to the nature of the learning environment. Basic skills and strokes of swimming are used to build endurance by swimming lengths. We also cover water hygiene and water safety.


IN THE GYMNASIUM: During the month of November, students return to their physical education classes in the Gymnasium. The rules for movement: moving without talking, moving without collision and stopping on signal are once again reviewed and practiced. Once the students become proficient in following the rules, small hand apparatus is introduced (balls, ropes, hoops, paddles) allowing for students to increase their repertoire of movement. Gymnastics is also presented using large apparatus (mats, steps, mini-tramp, climbing ropes, Swedish box, spring board and climbing wall) so that students can experience different ways of rocking, rolling, swinging, hanging, vaulting and balancing. Combinations of these discoveries are used to create patterns and eventually routines. Other individual activities such as scooters, wands and the parachute are also offered so that students can experience the strategies involved when learning cooperation.
ON THE FIELD: Soccer, Kickball, Lacrosse, and “Capture the Flag” are played on the field so that students can practice the skills involved in playing a game, as well as, being part of a team. The concept of sportsmanship is highlighted and discussed. Track and Field is then introduced as an individual physical pursuit. Activities such as running distances, throwing objects and jumping for height and length are offered.
SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT: The ability to: follow directions and rules, show respect for the teacher and classmates, work with a partner by taking turns; sharing ideas and taking responsibility is a continual developmental process emphasized in all classes, and throughout the year.

Our Belief

A Look at Learning in ELL and Learning Support

Lincoln School believes children learn at different rates and in different ways. Some students may require extra support in academic areas to be successful. The learning support teacher provides that support to students and teachers to help our students be successful with their academic studies.

MUSIC FOR THE ELEMENTARY GRADES-PRIMARY 1 THROUGH GRADE 5

The Music program for Grades Primary 1 through Grade 5 is based on the Orff Schulwerk approach developed in Germany in the 1930’s. Carl Orff felt that children needed to move, sing, play instruments and dramatize their musical experiences. He also believed that children should be involved in creating their own music and then performing it with a group. The Orff philosophy has spread throughout the United States and is a major influence in any Music program.
