I'd agree with "happyfarm", only I wouldn't call them "principios", but "disciplinas/asignaturas/materias básicas".

"Lectura, escritura y matemáticas"


Explanation:
The three "R's" go for this three education areas which they write this way in order to name it 2 "R's"
I'd use Matemáticas" instead of Aritmetica which is the old fashion name for the subject "Mathematics"
