This resource is available on the Simply Charlotte Mason website, as a printed text or as an e-book. Here is a description from the website:
"Your Business Math Series is a fun and “living math” kit that reinforces math skills for ages 8–12! Your student uses his math knowledge to keep his very own store running and, hopefully, make a profit. But there are also some surprises along the way!"
I thought this might be a great way to review math skills, it can be completed in a few weeks or a whole school year. The student can choose to "run" a pet store, a book store or a sports store. They cover many aspects of running a store...sales, inventory, paying bills, writing checks, keeping a bank account ledger, etc.

This is a favourite spot for Clara and Fairy, they both love it! I interrupted her nap by taking the picture...sorry Clara!
Below is another favourite spot of this spoiled kitten. I keep telling Fairy that she can't be carrying that cat around all the time...
Dragon has his share of cuddles too. You can see their favourite spot, and this happens quite often. Clara likes to stretch her paws against him, for some weird reason, this is comfortable and she'll sleep like that until Dragon moves!

Dragon is pretending he is riding the horse...the sculpture is only the head of the horse!

For Princess, who is just 4, we are starting very slowly and keeping it fun and interesting.
For Fairy, we are starting Growing with Grammar. I have looked at this most of last year, and decided to give it a try. We will also use the Story Starters by Karen Andreola for writing practice.
Dragon will be using Learning Language Arts Through Literature, Orange Level at his request. We were given this curriculum and he showed interested in the format. It includes all the language arts in one, spelling, handwriting, grammar, reading...
I will be adding on the left side of the blog links to all these resources/curriculum shortly.
