Eagle Ridge Academy – School of Grammar (K-4)

At Eagle Ridge Academy, we consider the first years of schooling the Grammar Stage. These are the years in which the building blocks for all learning. In the elementary school years, the mind is ready to absorb information. Children at this age find memorization fun. During this period, education involves not self-expression and self-discovery but rather the learning of facts.

Students will learn the rules of phonics and spelling, grammar rules for English writing and speaking, poems, the vocabulary of foreign languages, the stories of history and literature, descriptions of plants and animals and the human body, and the facts of mathematics. This information makes up the grammar, or the basic building blocks, for the second stage of education.
