Cheers for your Peers

Promote positive peer responses using Dr. Jean's Cheer Cards. A great activity to use during student presentations. Student groups can select a different cheer (our teacher used a Cheerios cup to pass out the cards).

After a student presents, one of the groups teaches their cheer to the rest of the class. Then the whole class performs the cheer to celebrate the student presenters success! We did this in a college classroom and had a blast. I think any elementary group will get a kick out of it. It also helps students to blow off some steam between presentations.

You can find the Cheer Cards here.
