Debbie also has her own blog where she shares her wonderful singing talent (among other talents!).  You can also purchase her books and CD’s from her site…and after reading this post…please GO and do that!!! 🙂

IMG_5028We made Debbie this banner to welcome her!  Each K student created a block on the quilt! 🙂


Debbie got started right away singing her songs…


Here we are singing “Glad I’m at School”IMG_5034


I’ve had requests to play this one again tomorrow–it’s a new favorite!! 🙂


Then we sang my most favorite Debbie Clement song EVER!!  “You’re Wonderful!”

Debbie sewed all the quilts that were scanned and used as the illustrations in her books–they are GORGEOUS!!!



Here we are singing Jumpin’ Jamboree!

We also sang the Pollywog song and “All Together Now!” (two more favorites!!)

Here are some more pictures of our fun day!! 🙂IMG_5118

Debbie sang with us for over an hour!  The kids LOVED her.  How many people do you know that can keep 125 Kindergarten kids engaged for over an hour?? Not many!!  But Debbie can!

This is just a small amount of the 300 pictures I took today!  Be sure to hurry over to Debbie’s Tpt store (her store is on sale!!) and get some of these songs for yourself!  Tell her Kristen sent you. 🙂

Thanks for visiting Debbie!  My kids miss you already! 🙂

  1. Oh WOWOWOWOWOWOW!!! It really was an incredible time together, wasn’t it? Kristen, I still can’t believe we got 125 children into your classroom. What an incredible job you and your team did to prepare for our time together! It was so much fun to lead the children in my songs — that they already knew and LUV’d!!!!

    Thanks so much for documenting the time with these incredible photos of the kiddos in action. FAVE! FAVE! FAVE! FAVE! FAVE!!!!! I’m going to ‘share’ them over to my blog.

    Right this minute I am getting my first.ever.Skype. author visit together for later this morning. Are you ready for this? It’s for a group of children in the VIRGIN ISLANDS!!!!! I think I need to go to them — next winter.

    All the best!!!
