A Hundred Pennies and A Tray: Understanding 10s, decimals and percentages
Home and school educators can get much mileage from this simple, easy and inexpensive to use mathematical manipulative for elementary and middle school students. It uses pennies in ten frames on a try to demonstrate various mathematical concepts. It supplements any mathematical program already in use. You can use the one hundred pennies and a tray to teach addition, subtract to a 100, decimals, percentages and more.

Reflecting on the Gospels with Charlotte Mason's Saviour of the World
Let the child grow, so that, "New thoughts of God, new hopes of heaven," are a joy to him, too; things to be counted first amongst the blessings of a day. Vol 1, page 349.
First among the blessings of my day is the reading of the New Testament in sequence with Charlotte Mason's Saviour of the World. Here we have Chalotte's own narration of the bible written in verse. Join me to discuss the method of reading Saviour of the World in parallel with the Gospels, the example of reflection that Charlotte Mason sets for us in Saviour of the World, and the experience of walking alongside your students with Charlotte Mason as we are all students of the Divine.
