A Splendiferous Soap Net Sunday...and a freebie!

Oh, I love Sundays.  Especially when there's a marathon of The Lying Game on Soap Net.  Seriously, life couldn't get any better.  {Well, I guess it could.  I could not have to hear my alarm in the morning.  That would make life exponentially better.  Love my job.  Hate my alarm clock.}

I'm gearing up to teach a whole entire week for the first time this year.  Thank God it will be followed by a three day weekend!  I really need to know why school has to start at 7am.  Why can't we start at 10?  I would be so well rested at 10am.  I would probably even have time to put on a full face of makeup instead of cheating and using Whoorl's "five minute, five product face".  Win-win situation.  {As if the kids care about my face.  But then again, they do have to look at it all day.  Maybe some fun costume makeup would result in more time spent with all eyes on me?}
Anyway, like I said, I'm gearing up to teach this week.  I'm introducing bar models to my second graders.  Whewee.  This is my second year bar modeling and let me tell you, bar models make me want to head to a bar!  Do any of you use Singapore math or Math in Focus?  Any awesome bar modeling activities?  I'm trying to find some inspiration to make my own, but asking you guys just feels easier.  I'm just really into my stories right now and can't pull my eyes off Soap Net long enough to make anything.

I do want to share a few things with you party people though!  I found a super fun new blog over the weekend.  Please take a look at this adorable clip art:

You need it, right?!  Lauren over at The First Grade Diaries has a darling little Etsy shop with some cute clip art!  Make sure you go show her blog and store some love; I know I'm always looking for new clip art that doesn't come complete with a wishy washy legal team.
And for sticking with me through this ramble-icious post, a little freebie.  I'm teaching number words to my little kinder friends this week.  Thought you might be able to use these worksheets too!

Have a super fabulous Monday, my friends!

Wait. School starts at 7? Does that mean that you have to be there at 7am, or you begin teaching at 7am?!
