Belleview’s faculty and staff are proud to deliver a quality education designed to meet the needs of all students and ensure our students become self-sufficient, responsible citizens. By using the resources available at Belleview, students will be able to continue to grow academically, as demonstrated by data.
Literacy: Our current English Language Arts (ELA) is myView Literacy. myView Literacy is a comprehensive, interactive core literacy program for elementary students that targets all areas of the literacy block. Through high quality instruction that utilizes the science of reading and authentic literature, myView equips teachers with the tools they need to teach their students both how to read and how to love reading. Writing instruction in myView Literacy utilizes the power of mentor texts to inspire growing authors and takes students step by step through the writing process. Instruction in bridge lessons moves students through meaningful and connected spelling, grammar, conventions and word study experiences. Each unit brings all the learning together with a real world inquiry project that gets students engaged in their communities.
Math: Our current math adoption is enVision. enVision® Mathematics ©2020 for grades K-5 is the only math program that combines problem-based learning and visual learning to deepen students’ conceptual understanding. enVision is used by classrooms across the country and around the world. The latest enVision is even better with over 200 new lessons, a newly redesigned Teacher’s Edition, and new instructional strategies like 3-Act Math modeling tasks.
enVision packs a unique one-two punch. Lessons start with Problem-Based Learning, where students must think critically about a real-world math problem, evaluate options, collaborate, and present solutions. This is followed by Visual Learning to solidify the underlying math concepts. It’s the best way to help kids better understand math ideas.
