Skyping with the One and Only Debbie Clement

Have you heard of Debbie Clement? If not, get ready. She is going to be HUGE next year. She's already huge on Pinterest and her blog, Rainbows within Reach, is loaded with great resources for teachers in early elementary classrooms. As if that wasn't enough, Debbie is also giving the KEYNOTE at the I Teach K conference in VEGAS!

 I told you she was someone really special.

Last week I had the great honor of arranging a Skype visit with Debbie Clement. It was AMAZING. I haven't used Skype in a long time so I was a little nervous that we would have technical issues. It worked like a dream and my students were CAPTIVATED right from the very first moment. Debbie new exactly how to keep my antsy kindergarteners engaged. She even played "dress up" for them! Here you can see Debbie transformed into a giraffe outfit as she read and sang along with the book Tall Giraffe.

Sometimes she even had my students stand up, dance, and jump around.

 It doesn't get any better than this!
I just love this photo. You can see the excitement and engagement Debbie brought into my kindergarten classroom.
