Do you use class cheers and chants in the classroom? One thing that I love about my ‘staches is that they really support each other and care for one another. When someone is upset we comfort them. When someone meets a learning goal, we cheer for them. Randomly, we have recently become wolves and we howl when we cheer. Don’t ask. Just howl along. I am a firm believer that we should celebrate our successes, both big and small. For some of us, those small successes are what keep us motivated. Imagine the student who struggles all year with reading and finally puts the sounds together to read just one word? That must be celebrated. Imagine the student who reads on a level 16 when the Kindergarten level is a 4? That must be celebrated. That is where our class cheers and chants come into play!
Class Cheers And Chants
VIRTUAL CHEERS AND CHANTS!
We have spent a lot of time in virtual kindergarten this year. Virtual kindergarten is hard. Period. Full stop. So it’s even more important to cheer and celebrate. We have used our CHEER IT UP cheers in virtual kindergarten, but we have also created our motivational signs/cards that we are using constantly in the virtual setting. The kids love these. They laugh and giggle when I use them so I know it’s working to keep them motivated! Basically, anytime I want to cheer for the class or an individual student, I hold up a sign and read the cheer!
