Teaching Heart Mom Blog - http://teachingheartmom.blogspot.com/
Two of my favorite things are being a mom and a teacher. Teaching Heart is the website where I share things for the classroom and homeschool. I feel I have a few things I would like to share that may not necessarily be related to Teaching and as a result I have created a blog.

I have been out and about the internet world reading many blogs and learning about the blogging world for a few months now. A few weeks ago I took the plunge and became a blogger and created the Teaching Heart Mom Blog. Basically, I will be sharing tips from my everyday life and it will be a more of a personal area for me to share my ideas from a mommy perspective. If you have a blog and are a mommy, I would love you to comment on my blog with a link to your blog. Happy blogging!

*January 2008

Wow, is it another year already? It is a big one for us... This will be Teaching Heart's 9th year online. We have come a long way and I am thankful to my family and friends for all their support over the years. I am also thankful to my visitors kind words and encouragement over these nine exciting years. I truly am blessed in my life with a great family, awesome friends, and a wonderful business that allows me to share my God given talents. It is such a pleasure working with and helping teachers all over the world. We had our best year of sales and were able to make donations to various schools, families in need, Universities, and Non-Profits (Mothers and More & Autism Speaks) because of your support in purchasing one, some, or all of our products. I wish all my visitors a wonderful New Year. May you be healthy, happy, and continue to love & teach the children in your lives.

Please be sure to check the site often in 2008. I have plans to update many of the pages, add new pages, and to upload more free printables. I also have some more products to add to the site in 2008.

The next few notes are some items from the holidays that I would like to share with you all before I forget... I'll remind you again next year in my newsletter. I just did not have time before the holidays to get these ideas online... sorry!

Just wanted to share this game I made up for my family to play on Christmas Eve.  It was a HUGE hit with everyone.  I thought I would share it & you could save it for next year or another family gathering... if you are looking for a fun family activity.  I know I searched online and could only find Power Point Christmas Jeopardy and nothing too much more exciting.  So I tweaked a friends idea and came up with this game.  I had each family member send me (keeping their answers only to me) the name of their favorite song, favorite guilty pleasure, favorite Christmas song, a song that reminded them of the person they were buying for (we each bought for one person this year), and  a song that would be a great song for our family theme song (you know, if your family was on TV, what song would start the show).  I put all the songs on my ipod so that I could play them when needed throughout the 5 rounds (I only played songs in three of the five rounds and only played like 30 seconds from each song).   The game sheet is attached in PDF.  It is printed two sided and folded like a brochure.  Below you can download it in Publisher (which you can modify to fit your family) or in PDF.    Of course there were prizes for the big winners!  You can get creative with that!  I also burned each couple five CD's that included all the chosen songs.  It was an interesting collections, to say the least...  especially when your age span is 15 to 60 years.    Once you open a file below, you will have a better understanding of how the game works. Hopefully one of you will enjoy this game as much as we did!!

Christmas Rock'in Game is PDF
Christmas Rock'in Game is PUB

We also played Scene-It: which is another fun family game that can be played in teams. Below you will find links to the Scene-It games found on Amazon.

Another fun holiday thing to share. I created a nice gift idea for the child in your life... It is called Grinch on a Trip. Just get a suitcase, buy some white shirts in your child's size, get iron on computer paper, a Christmas Coloring Book, some green candy canes, the Grinch Book, and download the Grinch Soundtrack. Put this all in a suitcase and you have a great gift... see below. PS. I found the little dog stuffed animal at the dollar store. Too cute!

Click here to download my iron-on's in pdf
Click here to download the Grinch Candy Cane Tags

I love the computer iron-on paper and I am always looking for new things to create with it. When we are home in PA for Christmas, I always do Christmas Eve dinner and I wanted to have a fun centerpiece... I bought a table runner and printed some pictures of Christmas pasts (dating back 30 some years) on the iron on paper. I ironed the pictures onto the runner and had a great centerpiece. It got my family saying, "remember when..." I gave the runner to my mom as a gift after the dinner, since she loved it so much. Here is a picture of it in her home...

Below is the link to my favorite kind of IRON ON PAPER. I have tried many kinds and this in my favorite!

I think this is the last item I would like to share... I made Reindeer food this year for my son's class and decided to change the tag. I put the food in clear plastic bags and tied a Santa charm on the bag.
