Elementary Program

1st-6th Grades 

          Our Elementary department is a combined effort of parents to instruct our 1st - 6th graders in a collaborative setting. At least one parent of each elementary-aged student must participate in classes. Lead positions earn compensation. Parents are required to assist with set-up, clean-up, and other behind-the-scenes activities. We believe that the Lord has given each person unique gifts and talents and that by contributing these, our collaborative is strengthened, and our children are greatly benefitted

The Tuesday Morning Core Program is designed to introduce students to the Classical Model of Learning. In this model, elementary school children are expected to become familiar with a specific body of knowledge but are not yet asked to analyze it. On Tuesdays, we dedicate time to learning new memory work and studying science, new grammar terms, and history. The chart shows the content that rotates each of the three years; however, math, Latin, English, and Timeline are repeated yearly. 

 Due to the program's structure, we require students and families to sign up for all of the components on Tuesday mornings.

Course Description: The Elementary Core program is set up to introduce new memory material each week to our 1st thru 6th graders.

Anchor's Science and History class teaches the same topics that are covered in each week's memory work class.  New memory work will be given each week in the following areas: Timeline, History, Geography, Latin, English/Grammar, and Science. Students should memorize the memory workpieces each week. See Tuesday Triannual Program chart above to review topics covered each year. Latin, Math, Timeline, and English repeat each year. More information about the Classical Model can be found here: Classical Model at Anchor.
