Here’s a new handshake that Christy Wheeler from Norman, OK, taught me last week when I was in Oklahoma City. You put right palms together with your partner and then wrap your thumbs around the side of your partner’s hand as you say, “Ahhhh!”
O U Did a Good Job!
This is a new cheer that you can do in any state.
Oh - Circle hands above head to make the letter O.
You – Put hands in air to make the letter U.
Did a good job! – Clap your hands on each word.
Oh – Circle hands above your head.
S – Turn sideways and curve one arm and one leg to make the letter S.
You – Put hands in the air to make the letter U.
Did – Fists in the air as if cheering.
