Two weeks ago, my youngest left for college, and it’s still difficult...

I recently created a gift basket from Teaching Heart to be used in a auction for a fundraiser…  It included games for learning. I thought I would share the games in the baskets and the printables used to make them. Above is a regular Jenga game turned into a fun math game!  Played just like Jenga except after you pull your piece you need to solve the addition problem.  The printables for this game and the cover for the box can be found here!!

Hello… Yes, I am still here…  I always have great plans over the summer to get so much Teaching Heart work done… but with two busy kids and nice weather…  Teaching Heart gets put on the back burner.  Hopefully,  I won’t look back someday and say I spent my kids summers sitting at the computer…  lol!   Still hoping to get a few things done this summer and shared.  I have a great giveaway from Avery worth $150.00 in products to share soon.   I plan to put the back to school party on the low burner...
