I was wondering what you are learning in your classroom? We try to compare other classrooms around the world and what is being taught. We have been surprised that although things are different many things are the same. Also what is lyceum? I see it in several post. We are out for summer holidays but I told the students I would keep checking on blog friends over the summer.
Dear friends,Lyceum is a sort of school where Maths, Phisics, Biology and Chemistry are the main subjects, but we study others as well. In primary school we study Maths(subtraction, multiplication, addition, divisioin), Reading, Russian, English, PE, Music, Art,Geography and Handicraft.We are on a holiday now till September 1. When are you back to school?Regards,Mrs Golubeva
We return on August 25th for the students.I hope you have a wonderful holiday. What hours are you students in school? What hours do you work?

@Brenda Todd As for the teachers - we are back to school on August 5 in order to prepare our classrooms and lessons'plans, but it isn't a must to work every day.The 1 grade students study since 8 am to 12 am, others(2-4 grades)- since 1 pm to 5.30 pm - because in our school all students (grades 1- 11) study in one building and we don't have enough classrooms.We study English in special classrooms in groups of 13-14 students(it is the half of a class). We also have special classrooms for Biology, Chemistry, Phisics, History, IT, Maths - for grades 5-11. Each students in grades 10-11 have their own time table (it depends on the set of subjects they choose - they have 31 hours a week). Teachers have 28-34 hours per week, it means I have 6 lessons every day or more because my time table depends on the students' one.In order to have a good salary I have to take part in different meetings and conferences, write articles, prepare students for olympiads, conferences and exams and so on.Next year I will teach students of 2,3, 4, 10, 11 grades.Most of all I like to work with young learners because they are so active, motivated in learning English and like taking part in different projects.
Dear Mikayla ,Thank you for your comment! Kenny is so cute!!! We really love him! We are on a holiday now, hope in September he will tell you about his adventures in Russia :))) Kind wishes,Your friends
