In our Art class we use pencils and markers, pastel and charcoal, watercolor and acrylic paint.
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.
Art History is a very important part of our Art class. We study World Art History as well as Russian Art History.
If you child likes to express his feelings he/she can enjoy taking Art class and have fun in a very educational and interesting process!

   Math 6 a      6    9:30-11:00 Sa    Dr. Orlov      The Virtual Math curriculum is fully aligned with the Common Core Standards for Middle Schools. The SchoolPlus Virtual Math lessons for the middle school students emphasize problem-solving and empowering students to think mathematically.
The small size class is a great place for sharing and learning tips, demonstrating how to solve problems, and asking questions.
The virtual class activities and homework exercises include:
• Basic Practice: Simple questions that drill the comprehension of concepts
• Further Practice: More challenging questions that involve direct application
• Challenging Practice: Questions that require synthesis
• Questions that apply mathematical concepts to real-world situations
• Enrichment: Questions involving higher-order thinking or an open-ended approach to problems including the problems with a competition level of difficulty.

   Math A      A    10:45-11:30 Sa    Roman Kharchuk      Math A
Essential Math K-A
Primary math 1A textbook and workbook
Process skills level 1
The students are expected to have the following skills upon enrollment:
Add and subtract fluently within 10 and add and subtract numbers under 40 mentally through the use of number lines. Students should also be able to count up to a 100 forward and backward beginning with any number and a given sequence. In addition, students should be able to compose and decompose given numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and other ones.
During the year the 1st grade students will learn the following areas of common core curriculum for math:
Operations and Algebraic Thinking
• Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction within 40.
• Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction
Number and operations in base ten
• Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 39 into ten ones and other ones
Measurement and Data
• Measure lengths indirectly and by repeating length units.
• Tell and write time
• Represent and interpret data
• Geometry
• Distinguish between defining attributes versus non-defining attributes; build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes
• Compose two-dimensional or three-dimensional shapes to create a composite shape and composite new shape
• Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves and fourths. Kindergarten
Students are expected to have the following skills upon enrollment:
• Know number names and count to 100 by ones
• Count forward from any given number under 20 within the known sequence
• Count objects, as many as 20, say the number names in order while pairing each object with one and only one number name 
   Math B      B    9:30-10:30 Sa    Roman Kharchuk      Math B
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 40 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; know multiplication table up to 5 and related division facts; have basic understanding of fractions; can solve simple word problems including problems which involve multiplication and division.
We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as developing deep understanding of a place value. We will also learn how to find a number given a sum and a difference of two numbers, how to make a whole with fractions with like denominators. We will learn how to solve problems with money, time and time intervals and other units of time.
The teacher of this class is also going to implement some of the successful lessons from Natasha Rozhkovskaya’s book “Math Circles for Elementary School Students”. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers and include the following concepts and ideas: Square and square numbers, Random Maze, Experiments with triangles and quadrilaterals, Magic wheel and secret codes, Pascal’s triangle and many more fun activities. 
   Math C      C    Sa 10:20-11:35    Zoya Koza.      This is a class for students who have mastered addition and subtraction of numbers to 100 using mental calculation strategies as well as vertical algorithm. In addition, students are expected to have mastered the multiplication facts and related to them division facts up to 10 x10. We will continue on with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, paying special attention to mental calculation as well as using place value concept (vertical algorithm) for numbers up to 1000.

Students will learn rules for mental (partial) multiplication and division. Students will also learn how to compare fractions by drawing ad dividing bars, circles and other shapes and defining them on the number line. Students will be introduced to several strategies for solving multi-step word problems such as model approach, guess and check, restate and replace strategy and supposition method. Students will compute the perimeters and areas of regular and composite shapes in various measurement units and define various shapes and angles. In addition, the teacher of this class is going to implement some challenging problems from various Math Olympiad level sources. These enrichment lessons will help students develop deep feeling and understanding of numbers. 
   Math D      D    Sa 11:45-1:00    Zoya Koza.      Fall 2019 Math D
This is a class for students who have thoroughly mastered addition/ subtraction of numbers to 1000 using vertical algorithm as well as using mental calculation strategies; have deep knowledge of place value; know multiplication table up to 12 and related division facts, can solve multi-step word problems and have developed clear understanding of equivalent fractions and geometry of angles and polygons. In addition, this class is for students who have developed visible thinking skills as well as process skills such as supposition, restate and replace methods and other strategies described in the Process Skills level 3, model and heuristic (experimental) approach to problem solving.
The goal of this class is: continuous implementation of strategies described above reaching the level 4 of the Singapore math system. Level 4 is compatible only with the grade 5 of common core as well as other higher-level mathematical thinking concepts.
Every month students will practice and take MOEM Olympiad test.
