Welcome to Belle Alexander School (the kindergarten and first grade attendance center), “Home of the Readers.”
Here at Belle Alexander, our goal is to have ALL our kindergarteners and first graders learn to read and to want to go onto college or training after high school in order to get good jobs!
Our school is a Conscious Discipline school. Conscious Discipline professional development training has taught our teachers and paraprofessionals to consciously respond to daily conflict, transforming it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills to children. It’s all about taking a deep breath, calming oneself down and using your words to let someone know how you feel.
Our students are becoming technology experts as they use their IPads or their Smart Tables for writing, reading and math center time.
Each classroom has an electronic whiteboard and all teachers are using them to present their Saxon Phonics lessons as well as other lessons they have prepared.
Our teachers are presently working to align our curriculum to the new Common Core Standards and analyze our reading materials to meet the grade level demands of the Lexile Reading Levels.
