Do you use class cheers and chants in the classroom? One thing that I love about my kids 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. I firmly believe that we should celebrate our successes, 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. That must be celebrated. That is where our class cheers and chants come into play!

We have also created motivational signs/cards that we use for class cheers. And ya’ll, 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! It’s such an easy way to celebrate in our classroom!
To use, simply print, laminate, and tape to a popsicle stick! Place them in a cup to jar or bucket and when you want to cheer, grab one and yell out the cheer!
