Curriculum - information regarding current and future curriculum materials used at BES

*EnVisions – We're excited to provide opportunities through enVisionMATH that allow your student to be problem solvers and mathematical thinkers. Our focus is to develop student content knowledge and the necessary behaviors to be a mathematician. There are eight Mathematical Practices that define these behaviors.

Below is a link with more specific information regarding mathematical practices

Literacy and Reading– we are utilizing several resources this upcoming year in order to provide comprehensive literacy instruction to all students.

*National Geographic– We went through a pilot process and National Geographic curriculum has been adopted as our curriculum for reading this upcoming year. The kindergarten teachers are going through a credit class to adapt the curriculum to fit the needs of the students at that grade level. This curriculum provides opportunities to explore a wide variety of aspects of reading and literacy.


The following link will provide more details regarding specific aspects of the curriculum as well as definitions and a list of enrichment materials.
