Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lincoln District Curriculum
The expectations are outlined for each grade level from K-8 in the content areas of English language arts, math, social studies, science and engineering, drama, art, library and media, music, foreign languages, technology, and wellness. The expectations for English language arts are broken down into reading foundational skills, writing, speaking and listening, and language. This help educators determine where each student and the whole class is having success or need additional instruction.
Following is an example of each expectation for second grade language. A big idea is that "the English language varies in formality and regional, cultural, and social dialects." A key outcome is for students to use the conventions of standard English when writing. Finally, an example of an essential skill is for a student to be able to use apostrophes to form contractions and common possessives. As students move into middle and high school, these learning expectations increase in complexity and call upon students to use analytic and critical thinking skills.

Lincoln District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lincoln Public Schools’ curriculum has shifted from one that is topic-based and focuses on the content students are taught to one that is standards-based and revolves around what students learn. The district developed the “Lincoln Learning Expectations” that drive the standards in each content area. These expectations include the Common Core Standards that relates to student learning, the big ideas and essential understandings that students need to acquire, the key outcomes of each unit, and the essential knowledge and skills that students gain. From elementary school to high school, the curriculum is aligned based on the same key topics within each subject.

SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Fractions on Number Lines
Students in the primary school grades use number lines all the time for addition, subtraction, and skip counting. By third grade, students should no longer need the help of a number line for these purposes, but they will use number lines when they begin to learn fractions. Students will have to determine which fraction is represented by a number line. To figure out the denominator (whole) of the fraction, they count the number of line segments that make up the number line (point to point). They then must look at the point at which the dot appears to identify the fraction. If a number line contains four segments, the fraction will involve fourths. If the dot appears on the third point, the fraction would be 3/4. This will help students learn to plot fractions on number lines themselves.
