   Algorithmica k/1          11:30-12:15    Marina Malysheva      

An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure or directions for doing something. Most often, an algorithm is created for a computer or a robot, but a cake recipe is an algorithm, too!
In this class, the learning is based on real-life activities (e.g. animation with zoetropes, games on coordinate plane, quest stories, tasks from CS Unplugged). We combine these activities with math /logic problems and with programming exercises (Rover/Bigtrak in class, computer games as homework).

Children learn about computers and robots, but most importantly, they develop their thinking and creativity. While solving logical problems, playing memory games or acting out the algorithms, the students gain important cognitive skills and construct mathematical and programming concepts.

Students do not need to bring laptops to this class (although some homework tasks may require use of computer). Parents are strongly encouraged to stay in class, observe and (if need be) help the students, for example: transitioning between activities, understanding the tasks, handling manipulatives and robots.

Bigtrak is a programmable electric vehicle that can remember up to 16 commands and execute them in sequence. The commants are entered through the keypad on top of the vehicle. Read more at:

ReCon 6.0 is a programmable rover with accessories. It can remember nine algorithms (trips) with up to fifty commands. See the review at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma5OqHo564I and read more: http://www.timberdoodle.com/ReCon_6_Programmable_Rover_p/322-455.htm

CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around. Read more at http://csunplugged.org/

We will study quadratic equations and their graphs more deeply, two-variable equations and inequalities, setting up and solving harder algebra word problems, more complex radicals and fractional exponents, and the notion of a function and how to work with a function.

Fall 2012 Math 8c
This is a class for students who have command of elementary algebra. We will continue with different kinds of equations, e.g., exponential, radical, absolute value, quadratic, and simultaneous linear equations. Linear inequalities, as well as inequalities in two variables will be studied. Relation of quadratic equation to the graph of a parabola will be studied. A small amount of geometry will be included, but this is NOT a geometry course.

In this class we use real-world activities and interactive design to help the students develop computational thinking and creativity. We do this using the Scratch programming environment, adding some robotics and math problem modeling.

We start with storytelling and animations, and move on to computer games programming. Students plan and design interactive multimedia projects, in line with their own ideas and interests. They also use microcomputer/robotics kits (Lego WeDo, Makey Makey, PicoBoard) to connect their projects with real world.

Our students learn and actively use mathematics, including areas and concepts that are not usually covered in elementary school: geometry, logic, coordinates, negative numbers, decimals, random numbers and variables.

Children bring their laptops to class. Their parents are encouraged to help them with set up, and are welcome to stay in class – to observe and help.

   Programming_And_Imagination Intermedia      4-7    2:10-3:10    Sergey Torubarov      

In the intermediate class we continue design of interactive projects in the Scratch programming/authoring environment. We concentrate more on applications of programming (e.g. cryptography, math modeling) and on exploration of the new features of Scratch 2.0 that help learn about data structures and common algorithms (e.g. search, sorting, graph coloring).

Our students learn to put together multi-part projects, cooperate with each other and share their work. The emphasis is more on planning of the projects and on user-computer interaction than on coding.

We continue to use microcomputers and robotics kits. In addition to the hardware used in the first-year class (Lego WeDo, MaKey MaKey, PicoBoard), we apply Scratch programming to LEGO Mindstorms and Kinect. We touch upon the topics of electric circuits, circuit logic, and artificial intelligence; and tie them with mathematics.

This course prepares seventh and eighth grade academic achievers for the competitive test that qualifies them to enter the Bergen County Academies that is considered one of the best high schools in the USA, or New York City\'s Specialized High Schools such as the Bronx High School of Science, Brooklyn Technical High School, and Stuyvesant High School, among others.

The course covers all the math topics and tricks students will need to know for the test. Emphasis throughout the course is given to solving problems without using a calculator because the use of calculators is not allowed on the Bergen Academies admission test.

The course forms a learning continuum that explores strategies specific to competitive mathematics in depth and breadth. The problem selection emphasizes comprehension, critical thinking, observation, and avoiding repetitive and mechanical procedures. Explanations and discussions focus on both reasoning and execution.

Some of the most dreaded categories of problems are thoroughly represented: mixtures, rates, and problems that engage comprehension. Mixture problems are among the problems that are underrepresented in a common school curricular while being some of the more challenging word problems on the admission tests.

As the assessments, students will take the full length BCA math practice tests that are identical in level and format to the actual BCA practice tests.

   Architecture4Kids 1      4-5    11:30 - 12:15    Greg Gurevich      Fall 18

Besides getting to know significant buildings and architects in the world, as well as styles, we will also do sketching, some photography outdoors, and walking tours to see nearby buildings. Kids will learn how architecture integrates art, math, science, nature and critical thinking. We will do fun projects, like building a miniature tree house, house for bird or pet, or for an imaginary creature of alien. 
   Architecture4Kids 2      6-8    12:45 - 1:30    Greg Gurevich      Fall 18

The class offers students a chance to get to know some of the significant buildings and architects in the world, become familiar with some architectural styles, understand how architecture incorporates art, math, science, nature and critical thinking, and have a chance to work on their own projects and create their own designs.

We will also look into the subject from age appropriate mathematical point of view: how to calculate some basic structures, area, and volume, how architects calculate how many people are allowed in a building, how stairs are calculated, and how to calculate the life-cycle cost of construction from an energy point o view. 
   Architecture4Kids 3      7-8    10:40 -- 11:25    Greg Gurevich      Fall 18

For humans, self-expression is just as natural as breathing. This self-expression can take many forms – for some it is done through spoken or written word, for others it works best when a musical instrument is used as a medium, still others utilize the many practices of art as a way to convey their inner world.

In this class, we will concentrate on drawing as a way to express our natural artistic abilities.

The main premise of this class rests upon the idea that drawing is a technical skill and as such can be acquired and perfected by anyone at any age and regardless of perceived abilities.

This semester we will learn the “drawing alphabet” and will get really good at recognizing that the Five Elements of Drawing (a dot, a circle, a line, a curve, and an angle) are all around us. We will learn how to plan our work, how to concentrate, and how to take our time with our work. We will also talk about perfection and how as far as art is concerned there is no such thing as mistakes. There are, however, steps that can be taken to alter or add to those parts of our drawings that do not make us happy. This will help us talk about the way our creative process makes us feel and how to get the most out of those feelings.

We will draw from graphics and still life. We will use pencils, markers, oil pastels and crayon pastels as mediums to see how each differs from the rest and how certain mediums are more desirable for expressing our creative impulses. There will be an occasional homework assignment which will be emailed ahead of time. Enjoy the class!

PS. The class will be conducted in Russian with slight English deviations if and when necessary. 
   Art Photo      5-6    10:40 --11:25    Greg Khitrov      The goal is to spend approximately 30 min on the hands on portion of the class, for the last 10-15 in we will come to class to transfer all the images into a computer, and look at few to discuss. Students need to bring any point and shoot camera of their choice. No need to invest in any expensive equipment.

By the end of the semester students will be able to create a collage of all their work to show off their artistic views. Lessons plans will be distributed 
   Chess A      k-1    9:50 - 10:35    Scott Chaiet      Fall 18

   Dance 1      2-4    12:35 - 1:20    Kierstyn Sharrow      Fall 14

This class will focus on the fundamentals of ballet. The students will begin learning ballet terminology and the technique to execute those steps correctly. Along with enhancing the students physical awareness, they will learn to coordinate movements with music and learn how to use the music to express their artistry and creativity. Ballet class teaches discipline, the importance of routine, team work, and inspires self-motivation. The culmination of this class will be a dance performance piece showcasing all the students have learned and achieved as, not only individuals, but also as a group. 
   Dance_Movement for 4-5 y.      ps-k    9:50 - 10:35    n/a    Spring 14

CREATIVE MOVEMENT FOR THE YOUNG DANCER
This class will explore rhythm, music, movement, and coordination to create the fundamentals of all dance styles. Each week the children will progress on the knowledge from the prior class and add one new concept. Different styles of music, as well as the introduction of \"props,\" will be introduced each week to enhance creative options. By the end of the semester many of the \"building blocks\" of dance will be in place to help the children to decide which dance discipline to pursue for the future. The class will culminate in an expressive and creative dance performance for their parents and their peers. 
   Early_Logic G&T Eng      3.5-4.5    9:50 - 10:35    Antonina Lifshits      Fall 18

As much as it appears unfair or unreasonable to start drilling and test-prepping our kids at such an early age, there is no harm in giving them a little bit of a foot-up. The earlier they get into the habit of learning things, the more they learn to focus, absorb, and process information, the easier and more enjoyable it will be for them in the future.

While introducing a variety of subjects from the world around us through images, games and open discussions, the class will focus on developing a variety of different skills: visual, logical and mathematical thinking, attention and memory, imagination and speech development.

These skills are, of course, the integral part of the OLSAT/BSRA tests required for getting into the Gifted and Talented Programs in NYC, and although we will try and address various issues systematically, I am sure the kids will still have their fun. 
   Early_Logic G&T in Rus      3.5-4.5    1:25 - 2:10    Antonina Lifshits      Fall 18

Taught in Russian

Getting into a good school program is one of the major challenges that NYC kids and their parents have to face. As unfair and ridiculous this situation may be, letting your children obtain some useful learning skills early, is not a bad idea.

This class is designed to develop their logic and reasoning skills, introduce basic mathematical concepts, and help our students be more aware and learn more about the world they live in. During our classes we\'ll work on developing better memory skills and attention span, pattern recognition and sequencing, problem-solving, creative thinking, and verbal skills. We\'ll use a lot of appealing visual aids, games, and printouts to help our little students enjoy the learning process.

While one of the class\'s primary goals is to prepare children for OLSAT/BSRA test for gifted and talented, we think that introducing them to the classroom setting will also eventually help them feel more comfortable in their school environment. 
   Early_Logic Russian1-1      ps-k    9:50 - 10:35    n/a    The aim of this class is to develop memory, attention and cognitive skills. It will support and develop the child\'s curiosity about the things around us, as well as help teach numeracy and spatial skills and develop logical thinking in game-based activities. Most of the assignments will improve the study skills of children by focusing their attention on rules, examples and following the procedure in solving a problem. I use methods that foster both creativity and self-control, and our homework assignments are tailored to the individual capabilities of each student. 
   English 4      4    9:00 - 9:45    Aidan O Connor      Fall 18

The goal of this 4th grade ELA class is to not only improve students’ ELA skills in the short term, but also introduce strong reading strategies and habits that will help students’ skills improve for years to come.

Each student will finish the course with a reliable and well-developed foundation to build off in the ELA subject area. The course will tackle fiction reading, non-fiction reading, figurative language, active reading, a few ELA test-taking strategies, basic grammar, analyzing text and more.

Much of class and homework will involve reading and responding to text (age and grade appropriate material). Digesting complex text is an invaluable skill in both high school and college. Building strong focus and mental stamina at this age will benefit your child immensely in the years to come.

The course will focus mostly on reading comprehension with a small amount of writing and grammar.

Students can expect 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework each week. 
   English 6      5-6    9:50 - 10:35    Aidan O Connor      Fall 18

English 6 will be reading and writing enhancement course based on the sixth-grade level. The class may also be feasible for advanced 5th-grade students.

The Reading aspect of the course will be roughly 1/3 non-fiction material and 2/3 fiction material. It will focus on building advanced comprehension skills such as identifying motifs, arguments, theses, and the author\'s inspirations and goals. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing.

Assignments will include persuasive essays, research essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and a small amount of poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing) and will move to more creative processes in the second half.

Expect 1-2 hours of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course.

   English TestPrep      5-6    12:20 -1:05    n/a    Each lesson will consist of a do now exercise, of doing a portion of a sample test question from a Verbal Section, focusing on Comprehension. For the remainder of the class each day we will focus on test taking strategies for the material that we worked on for the lesson, the lessons that the questions bring up in the material.
Ultimately, each child will be prepared for the test taking conditions of the Gifted and Talented program. In my class I would be sure that each child works through the lesson that would be inherent in the test samples. These are lessons that would be important as determined by the New York City Department of Education for Gifted and Talented children.

This class will continue for the most part looking at the history of the world chronologically, starting from the period of the 16th century onwards. We will, however, have re-trace our steps and go back to the post-Mongol-invasion Russia and China, and also learn about Japan and the golden age of Mughal Empire in India, and some other parts of the world.

The students will be offered to do their own presentations on historical figures and events. Also, this year I would also like to incorporate in our classes a light version of the book club/debate units and have some more candid discussions of issues, rather than just presenting exciting facts. 
   Geography/History in Russian      2-4    12:35 - 1:20    Antonina Lifshits      Fall 18

History and Geography in Russian

We will continue learning about some prominent historical people, events, and places in the world during the period starting approximately in the 13th century and continuing into the Renaissance era. There will be plenty of interesting people to meet, stories to read and listen to, and art to discover.

   Math for ps-k      ps-k    9:00--9:45    n/a    Spring 14

The class we\'re going to offer this semester will partially retain the idea of the Early Logic class but will focus more on math in general rather than on specific types of problems your child may encounter during the school admission tests.
Restrained no more by these looming tests we\'ll work on solving a variety of interesting logical problems, work on learning about numbers, addition and subtraction, about numerical and geometrical concepts, simple graphs, measurements and special relationships.
Math will make its appearance in different guises. It will emerge from stories, songs, poems, pictures, and games and children will learn how it can be applied.
Writing numbers and drawing shapes is probably not going to be your child\'s favorite activity but it will help to improve your child\'s motor skills and allow him or her to do their work more independently.

   Russian_as_Second_Language 6      3-4    8:45 - 9:30    Svetlana Yangol      Fall 15


This year our main goal is to make smooth transition from learning letters to reading, understanding and retelling short stories. We will learn basic rules of Russian language and will build up the ability to create short phrases and dialogs. In this course we will use the book \'Reading with big letters\' by Olesya Zhukova.

Students will be assigned appropriate homework, which includes reading short stories, answering questions, learning basic rules, doing simple grammar exercises, listening recorded fairy tales and memorizing pieces of poetry. 
   Russian_Drama New      3-5    12:40 - 1:40    n/a    Spring 18

Our Russian Drama class is on of the SchoolPlus\'s most exciting and challenging projects. It gives children an opportunity to play, to perform, to learn some classical Russian tests by heart and to practice speaking Russian. It is also a big art project, where all children participate in designing costumes, backdrops and other pieces of theatrical scenery.

While learning to work together children get to know each other better than in many other classes, and at the end, they are always proud to have been a part of this team and to have been on stage.

Although the work can sometimes be tedious, the result is always original and remarkable, and it is one of the things we hope they will remember as a part of their Russian experience.

   Singing in Russ      ps    10:00 -10:45    n/a    Fall 15


My music lessons will engage children\'s minds and bodies through a mixture of singing, acting and the use of percussion instruments (i.e. xylophones, triangles, rhythm sticks).

Children will learn how to appreciate classical music: I’ll play piano pieces from children\'s repertoire, written by the great classical composers. Kids will listen stories about these compositions.

Some elementary musical grammar will be presented as well.
Singing is stressed as the foundation for musicianship. Learning the children\'s favorites’ songs, folk and composed music is fun not only for kids, but for the whole family. 
   Singing in Russ-1      1-2    11:05 - 11:50    n/a    Fall 15

Every lesson consists of three parts:

exercises for development of rhythm and ear-training, and choral singing, basic rules of pitch and rhythm notation, intervals recognition

popular songs from cartoons and movies learned

history and evolution of music, how music began, and how it has evolved over thousands of years; stories about famous composers: Vivaldi, Handel, Beethoven Mozart, Chopin 
   Tests_preparation Hunter      5    12:50 - 2:20    Aidan O Connor      Fall 18

​The course should only be taken by students who are planning on taking the exam in January 2020 and who want to get a head start on building the foundations necessary to succeed on the Hunter Entrance Exam. We will cover the three sections of the exam: Reading, Writing, and Math.

The Reading portion will include reading comprehension of high-level (~8th grade) fiction. It will mainly feature works from the turn of the 20th century. The writing will focus on writing a strong 5 paragraph personal essay within time constraints. The Math will focus on creative problem solving and cover a range of topics from basic algebra and geometry to probability and pattern recognition. The math will feature problems similar to those seen on Math contests.

Since this course is for 5th graders, it will focus on introducing all of these concepts rather than mastering a few, which will take a significant amount of time and work. The course will be focused and serious with homework assigned each week that must be completed. Parents should make sure students enter the course with a serious commitment to it.

Adventures in Inventing Ourselves

A subway poster in NYC says, “As a student, Einstein was no Einstein.” He had to discover his particular genius, which meant finding his passion and arranging his life so he could pursue it. The world has not been designed to discover, understand and nourish each individual’s unique gifts. This workshop is.

This project is an exploration of what resonates for students, and their own natures, talents and ambitions. We see how those three must be connected to achieve success.

Each student chooses to research a different discoverer from history and science,focusing on the drama of a breakthrough moment, which they try to convey through a presentation or through a journal they create, pretending they are witnessing the discovery. If time permits, we can embellish the journals with old-fashioned touches and drawings.

A key element of this class involves students learning to use, as a mental toolbox for lifetime learning, various brainstorming techniques of top think tanks at IBM and Google.
The aim will be self-exploration and articulation.

An easy tie-in is a show or reading on one of the great discoverers, or a field trip to Liberty Science Center or the Edison center.

   Early_Logic & Math K (      K    12:10 - 12:55    Dr. Chandra Budi      This class is designed to help very young children develop their thought process, which is the main foundation of learning preparedness. Children who are encouraged to understand the process of thinking tend to be inquisitive, creative, confident, compassionate, and communicative.

This class goes beyond preparing children to learn mathematics; the main goal of the class is to provide a tool for children to understand their own thinking, hence enabling them to understand events and the environment around them.

For example, a thoughtful child will understand that sharing is not about getting a reward in the end; rather, a child will understand that it is about caring for a friend, having a friend to talk to and to play with. By the same token, a child who understands the logic of shapes will be able to understand that a triangle isn\'t just a shape that exists on paper or in his/her mind, rather it exists around us; he/she will be able to tell us that a mountain is shaped like a triangle, an ice cream cone is shaped like a triangle or to be a bit more advanced, two triangles can make another kind of shape all together... This kind of inquiry process will go infinitely.

What should you expect from the class? Mostly we will focus on interactive and communicative activities; we do not do as much drilling and repetition as our Mathematics class does. Rather we focus on building the core of \"thinking\" and explore them through verbal and written interactions, as well as pictorial usage for children who are still acquiring English. Please note: written interaction doesn\'t mean your child needs to be able to write, rather the teacher will use tools such as journals or lists or other writing means to help children in understanding their thoughts.

We hope to see you in class; nothing is worth more noting in any learning experiences than the building of a thought.

students will work in groups to create stories and short plays that they will perform for the class, promoting both reading and writing skills. 
   English Workshop I      Mixed    tbd    n/a    HIDDEN TREASURE
There’s a new recreational craze among young people on the Internet, and it involves getting out and exercising! It’s called letterboxing.

Young people from elementary schools to colleges are hiding boxes with writing in parks and public spaces all over the country. Clues are posted on the Web so others can search for the hidden treasures.
Searchers follow mathematical, geographical and logical clues posted on the Internet to find boxes. The rewards are student writings on various themes: history, wildlife, writing
and art. Each box contains an artistic rubber stamp so the searchers can stamp a field book as proof that they solved the clues and found the location.
Students can search for previously created hidden boxes or create a series of their own for other classes to hunt down. We start by with themes of relevance to each group’s current studies, then create stamps and booklets of student ideas and writing. They can be hidden on school grounds and posted on the school website as a challenge for other students now and in future years.
This is a great way to introduce students to a free recreational activity that can motivate them to hike various parks throughout their lives.

Children who are encouraged to understand the process of thinking tend to be inquisitive, creative, confident, compassionate, and communicative.

This class goes beyond preparing children to learn mathematics; the main goal of the class is to provide a tool for children to understand their own thinking, hence enabling them to understand events and the environment around them.

For example, a thoughtful child will understand that sharing is not about getting a reward in the end; rather, a child will understand that it is about caring for a friend, having a friend to talk to and to play with. By the same token, a child who understands the logic of shapes will be able to understand that a triangle isn\'t just a shape that exists on paper or in his/her mind, rather it exists around us; he/she will be able to tell us that a mountain is shaped like a triangle, an ice cream cone is shaped like a triangle or to be a bit more advanced, two triangles can make another kind of shape all together... This kind of inquiry process will go infinitely.

What should you expect from the class? Mostly we will focus on interactive and communicative activities; we do not do as much drilling and repetition as our Mathematics class does. Rather we focus on building the core of \"thinking\" and explore them through verbal and written interactions, as well as pictorial usage for children who are still acquiring English. Please note: written interaction doesn\'t mean your child needs to be able to write, rather the teacher will use tools such as journals or lists or other writing means to help children in understanding their thoughts.

We hope to see you in class; nothing is worth more noting in any learning experiences than the building of a thought.

This program teaches operations with whole numbers, fractions and decimals in a systematic way. It shows that basically the rules of arithmetic are universal. The program provides students with many non-routine, multi-step arithmetic problems. Different methods of solving various kinds of word problems are discussed. In addition to Arithmetic, there are some exciting topics such as Combinatorics, Pigeonhole principle and logic problems. You might find the lessons in the Geometry section particularly interesting. Students learn to use logic, geometric facts and calculations.

This program is targeted to 4th and 5th grade students and it is aligned with focal points of Standards for School Mathematics developed by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).

   Math M II      7-8    10:45 - 12:15    Yakov Rolbin      At this level, math students need to know and really understand basic laws and rules of algebra. This program teaches the algebraic rules from the simplest to more advanced, formulas and applications. The program includes many types of word problems and shows how they can be solved. Besides Algebra, the program includes several enrichment topics such as Mathematical Induction, Advanced Combinatorics, Logic games, Fibonacci numbers. You might find particularly interesting the lessons in the Combinatorics section. Students learn to use logical reasoning, systematic approaches to problem solving, calculations and algebraic transformations. This class also prepares students for the admission tests into the selective High Schools.

This program is targeted to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and is aligned with Focal points of Standards suggested by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)

This class will be dedicated to the studies of the wider world, primarily to its geography (where?), history (when?) and curious natural phenomena (how?). We’ll look at the pictures, talk and read about interesting people, places, and events, but we’ll also try to find answers to many unexpected questions children may bring to the classroom.

Playing games, reading, making art projects, and having a lot of interesting discussions all along is the only way your teacher conducts this class.

It would not only add to the kid\'s sum of knowledge, but also would help them develop and improve their verbal skills and their ability to reason and communicate their own ideas.
