Lincoln Interactive Third Grade
Lincoln Interactive offers an engaging curriculum for third grade students. Third grade departs from Little Lincoln's elementary program and helps students transition into the world of Lincoln Interactive.
Third grade offers 36 full weeks of instruction that can be completed at a student's own pace. All coursework is developed and approved by certified teachers. The curriculum meets or exceeds national and state standards with stimulating courses in math, language arts, science, social studies, visual arts, and wellness. Each course combines online content with hands-on applications.
Online, students will experience lesson content, videos, multi-media games, and enrichment activities. To supplement online features, students will also use hands-on learning tools, such as novels, activities books, journals, and experiments.
Because Lincoln Interactive combines online and hands-on elements in a blended-learning approach, the curriculum works well in both traditional and home-based classrooms. Virtual students can complete a full 180-day education remotely at their own pace. In a traditional classroom, Lincoln Interactive materials and activities can be used to supplement an existing curriculum. Lincoln Interactive Third Grade provides everything students need to be successful in the 21st century classroom.
Students will read five novels as part of the language arts curriculum. Three of the books are highly regarded children's literature. The other two are original works written by on-staff author Michael Scotto called Latasha and the Little Red Tornado and Postcards from Pismo.
Getting Started Activities
Third grade students can start each day with the optional Getting Started Activities, which include Brain Food, Flashcards, and Ready, Set, Go! These activities are designed to spark students' curiosity and prepare them for the day's lessons. The kit also includes Worldseum, a board game designed specifically for the Lincoln Interactive curriculum. Students can create their own game cards to go along with a particular lesson.
- Brain Food provides interesting information on a different topic each day: technology, art, family/consumer science, music, and wellness.
- Flashcards help students review math skills.
- Ready, Set, Go! is a test preparation book with activities that teach organization, good study habits, and strategies for taking tests.
Lessons Delivered Online
Lincoln Interactive uses a unique content delivery system to present lesson information. Instead of using a textbook, students will see all lesson content, homework assignments, and enrichment activities in a creative online format.
Third grade students receive direct instruction by watching two teacher videos online each day. Each teacher has a unique, energetic personality to get students excited about learning. All videos are developed and approved by certified educators.
Virtual games are an essential part of the third grade curriculum because they are custom-built to match the Lincoln Interactive course content. These online games provide a fun alternative for practice and reinforcement of the objectives taught in the lessons.
Third grade students will receive four activities books for each course,
one per nine weeks. These books contain colorful activity pages that
reinforce each lesson's objectives. The books include on-level activities,
reteaching aides, and extra practice exercises.
