   Chess B      2-4    10:40 -- 11:25    Scott Chaiet      Spring 18

Kids of different ages study chess rules and do practice in a small group under FIDE Master control. They learn how to start a game and get good development for an army of pieces. They study tactical tricks and develop an overall vision of the board. In a few month, our students can successfully play in NYC chess tournament.

This group is slightly advanced. We still are learning basic strategies. At the same time, the individual training before chess tournament will be given as well as skittle games.

   English 4      4-5    10:40 - 11:25    Aidan O Connor      Spring 18

The goal of this 4th grade ELA class is to not only improve studentsí ELA skills in the short term, but also introduce strong reading strategies and habits that will help studentsí 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.
Iím greatly looking forward to the class and hope to see you there! 
   Geography/History in English      4-6    10:40 - 11:25    Antonina Lifshits      Spring 18

This class is already full. Please contact mhtnschoolplus@gmail.com to place your kids\' names to the waiting list. If we have enough children there, we will run an identical class and alert you.


This year we\'ll continue moving on through history of the world, and we\'ll pick up where we\'ve left off at the end of the last semester, namely in the 13th century. We\'ll continue learning about the Middle Ages and then gradually transition into the Renaissance period.

We\'ll explore not only the major political events, which have shaped the world at the time but also get to know some great people. We\'ll learn about discoveries, achievements, and adventures, about art, literature, travels, and some details of individuals everyday life.

   Programming_And_Imagination HTML      5-6    10:40-- 11:25    Sergey Binder      Spring 18

The course covers learning and using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, modern web design technique.

High school students and adults, who want to learn programming websites, are invited.
The course is designed to form WEB developer skills. Every web page is written in HTML. Like any language, HTML has its own syntax and semantics. CSS allows you to make web page elements desired look and style. With JavaScript, a web page becomes interactive, reacts to user actions, events.

Students are taught to create Web pages, place them on a server and make them available for viewing by Internet users around the world. Students use software development tools, debug and download.

   Programming_And_Imagination Scratch-2      5-7    11:30- 12:30    Sergey Binder      Spring 18

The goal of the course is to give students the initial concepts and core competencies in areas related to information processing. The course explores the concepts of information, the algorithm, the program, and related concepts: data and data types, variables, structure - content, object, properties, functions, events and programming language.

The course is built mainly on practical training, which focuses on the independent development of algorithms and analysis of algorithms. The designing of algorithms is the most creative step in the creation of computer programs including programming for robots.

The course is designed for students who own technique of working with the computer, at least with the game software, and have basic knowledge of geometry. On the first lessons, students refresh this knowledge, including concepts of the coordinate system, point, line, geometric shapes. Course and students performed software projects must interest in programming, bring an understanding of the beauty of fine algorithms, the desire to continue learning in this direction.

   Russian 4      3-4    9:00 -- 9:45    Alina Obeeva      Spring 18


As it happens, having started school our Russian-speaking children have much more opportunities to hear, speak, and read English, than they do Russian. Therefore, my Russian 4 class this year will focus on several important issues. First and foremost among them is reading.

Without reading skills there can be no progress in learning any language. Related to this issue are, of course, the problems of speaking and writing, and doing it properly too.

Learning about parts of words and speech, we\'ll spend a lot of time working on such difficult issues of Russian Language as declension and spelling. The class as a whole will be built around grammatical topics of a textbook.

The book, however, will be only a basis from which we\'ll venture into various directions, studying vocabulary, different ways of building a sentence, and getting acquainted with basics of Russian literature. 
   Russian 5      4-6    10:40 -- 11:25    Nadezhda Zhavoronkina      Spring 18

This class is appropriate for fourth to fifth-grade bilingual children with a strong foundation in Russian. It aims to increase studentsí reading and speaking proficiency to an advanced level. We continue studying the parts of speech: declension cases of the nouns, pronouns, and adjectives, and conjugation of the verbs.

The course starts with the basics types of sentences, punctuations, and structures of sentences and paragraphs. Students will practice in rephrasing of sentences, practice in grammar and vocabulary usage.

Students will read and analyze descriptive and informative texts and will develop independent writing skills through dictation exercises. Individual and team work will be a key to advancing students\' oral communication skills.

Reading includes pieces by Ivan Krylov, Lidia Charskaya, Vladimir Zheleznikov, Daniil Kharms, Karel Chapek. 
   Russian_Drama New      3-5    12:40 - 1:40    Antonina Lifshits      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. 
   Science 3      4-6    12:35 - 1:20    Valentina Bardakov      Spring 18

This course designed to encourage students to develop an interest in science and help them to pursue STEM careers in the future. In this class, we will have Biology, Chemistry, Physics as well as Math components. I will try my best to mak it appropriate for 4th and 5th graders. Attendance, homework, being in class on time, as well as proper behavior, is expected. No previous knowledge of the subjects mentioned above is required except for grade appropriate level of Math.

The class will have lectures, practical experimental components, as well as videos, quizzes and field trips. I hope that this course will help in creating future Researchers, Medical Doctors, Engineers as well as Science Teachers. I look forward to this class and hope that it will be an inspiration for my students.
