We use the Ipod as well to teach how to draw step-by-step.
We learn the important art definitions and styles, study how to draw animals and plants, transportation and people.
We create different types of artworks: still life, portrait and landscape.

   Math 4a      4/5    10:20-11:35 Su    Mary Marvin      Who may join Math 4 class at this time? The class will be helpful for a student currently in a 4th-grade math class in his regular school and whose parents want extra support in his or her math studies at this difficult time. Math 4 covers all material of a 4th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the NJSLA test at the end of 4th Grade. At this point in the school year, kids should know about factors and multiples, place value to the hundred thousand and be pro&cient with long multiplication and division with 2 and 3-digit numbers, and with the basic operations of fractions, including addition and subtraction with different denominator; they should know the basics of decimals, including addition and subtraction, and how they relate to fractions, and know how to solve simple area and perimeter problems. Children should also have seen numerous word problems on these topics over the school year. All of the above will be reviewed throughout the rest of the semester, along with any new topics in the 4th grade math curriculum. At SchoolPlus, we believe that children are happiest and perform better on tests when they have a real understanding of the topic at hand, and not just superficial knowledge that comes from rote practice. We’ll use this period we now have, to make sure kids do understand these topics so that they can complete the math part of their school year successfully. 
   Math 5      5    Sun 11:40 -12:55    Mary Marvin      Who may join Math 5 class at this time?

The class will be helpful for a student currently in a 5th grade math class in his/her regular school, and whose parents want extra support in his or her math studies at this difficult time.

Math 5 covers all material of a 5th grade class in a child’s regular school, including things he must know for the NJSLA test at the end of 5th Grade.

At this point in the school year, students should have an understanding of fractions and decimals to the stage of multiplication of both; they should have knowledge of the basics of percentage, ratio, more complex area and perimeter of rectangles, area of a triangle; simple volume problems, and reading line and bar graphs.

All of the above will be reviewed throughout the rest of the semester, along with any new topics in the 5th grade math curriculum.

At SchoolPlus we believe children perform better on tests when they have real understanding of the topic, not just superficial knowledge that comes from rote practice.

We’ll use this period of time we now have, to make sure kids really do understand these topics, so that they can complete the math part of their school year successfully.
