STAGES OF EDUCATION

Learning naturally processes through a series of stages as children’s brains mature. Although the boundaries of these stages are by no means rigid, distinctions do exist based on how children develop. So, what should you expect in each of these stages? How should the developmental process affect how we teach? Explore the answers to these questions and more as you learn how to confidently walk your children through each stage of the homeschool journey. READ ARTICLE

STARTING OUT

Preschool - 1st Grade

The excitement stage of learning usually begins in kindergarten or first grade and extends through third or fourth grade. This is the time to let our children explore, gather, accumulate, and absorb as much as possible in fun, exciting ways.

GETTING EXCITED

2nd - 4th Grade

The excitement stage of learning usually begins in kindergarten or first grade and extends through third or fourth grade. This is the time to let our children explore, gather, accumulate, and absorb as much as possible in fun, exciting ways.

BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND

5th - 8th Grade

This stage usually fits into what we call the middle school years, beginning in fifth or sixth grade and extending through about eighth grade. These years form a bridge between the years of excitement and the deeper thinking required in high school.

LEARNING TO REASON

9th - 12th Grade

This reasoning stage typically fits well into the high school years, starting around age fourteen or fifteen and extending to graduation. During these years, your child will try to establish his own foundation of beliefs and process why he thinks the way he does.
