If you don't know Debbie, she is a phenomenal singer, songwriter and author. Seriously. She has 3 books, 6 CDs and over 100 songs. Yeah. If you don't know her, find her and learn about her. She has an amazing blog at Rainbows Within Reach where she shares amazing art projects, ideas, bulletin boards and so much more. It's a super cool website because she shares all of these amazing visuals from her travels so that blog is crammed full of great ideas.
Debbie visited my school on Monday. So cool. She rode to work with me. We made my usual Sonic stop together. She spent the day roaming the school and visiting and singing with classes. And what did my school have to say about her??? Well, of course they were blown away. She was a HUGE hit!
The Music Lady put on an hour long show for our PreK-1st graders. I know...you're thinking an hour is crazy long for the little ones. Debbie is so engaging that the hour flew by and the students were enthralled. They were involved, excited, dancing, signing and just plain having a blast. But get this...Music Lady is so in control, that when she's ready to talk and needs their attention???? They are so with her. She has such an amazing way with kids. Seriously. Child Whisperer.
After the program, Music Lady visited my room to sing and dance with the 'staches. And of course, we made our own music videos! hehe
And when The Music Lady visits, you have to make crazy faces!
And of course, when a celebrity visits, you must make a hat!
I am seriously blessed to be surrounded by such incredible, amazing, talented, generous people. I heart The Music Lady!
People, this was the best day of kindergarten ever. Seriously! My 'staches were just beside themselves with excitement to meet the voice who sings some of our favorite songs. Debbie is truly an amazingly talented teacher who knows how to have a good time!!!
Seriusly, you must visit Debbie's blog and TPT shop. She has some songs on TPT that are class favorites.
Tall Giraffe, You're Wonderful, Monster Spray and I'm Glad I'm At School are daily requests. They're so easy for students to learn and sing with. They're so catchy you might even sing them in the car...the shower...at the gym....at Publix...yeah, I'm that person. AND our music teacher is using some of these songs in our Kindergarten program. SWEET!!!!
We had a blast eating pizza (BTW, gluten free pizza...yucko!) and talking about teaching and blogging and technology. We laughed, we ate, we learned...we had a blast!
