Lakenheath Elementary School (LES) opened its doors in 1969 as a K-6 elementary school. Several years ago, after the adoption of the middle level concept at the Lakenheath Middle School, LES became a K-5 elementary school. LES piloted one of the first Sure Start programs in DoDEA, implemented the PSCD program and supported the transition of grades 4-5 to the new Liberty Intermediate School. Currently, LES is a PreK-3.
GRAIR: Guided Reading and Accountable Independent Reading
Staff will work with small groups of students to meet their specific, individual reading needs, while other students read self selected texts based on interests, readability and availability.
Strategic Mathematics Instruction (SMI) is a Tier 3 intervention program designed for intensive support in mathematics. SMI is explicit, evidence-based, small group instruction intended to accelerate the conceptual understanding, problem solving, and reasoning of identified and referred students who are striving to meet grade-level College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics (CCRSM). SMI is provided in addition to core classroom instruction and core intervention, thereby increasing the total amount of time students receive mathematics instruction. SMI follows an instructional routine that supports or scaffolds the strengthening of deficit skills.
Strategic Literacy Instruction (SLI) is a critical, supplemental instructional component of a DoDEA’s Comprehensive Literacy Program. SLI is explicit, evidence-based, small group instruction intended to accelerate the listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills of identified and referred students who are striving to meet grade-level College and Career Ready Standards for Literacy (CCRSL). SLI is provided in addition to core classroom instruction and core intervention, thereby increasing the total amount of time students receive literacy instruction. SLI follows an instructional routine that supports or scaffolds the strengthening of deficit skills. SLI employs the gradual release of responsibility to the student using teacher think aloud ("I do"), modeling and interactive, shared responsibility for the steps to reach the instructional target ("we do"), and student practice supported with immediate and ongoing instructional feedback until the targeted skills are demonstrated ("you do"). The expectation is that students will develop independence and fluency with the targeted skills in order to transfer their learning when faced with similar literacy demands across content areas.
