    Since it first appeared in print in “The Lady’s Magazine” for 1818, the phrase “The Three R’s” has been in vogue for what is to be learned in the early years of elementary school – readin’, (w)ritin’, and (a)rithmetic.

    When the phrase was coined, most students began school in the first grade at about the age of 6. But, the explosion of knowledge over the two centuries since the phrase’s inception has mandated students get an earlier start on their education.
