Banana Cheer

Hola from El Paso Texas!  El Paso is one of the nicest, friendliest places in the world!

Here's a cheer a Aurora Domingues taught me yesterday:

Make a banana.  (Put your fingertips together.)
Kiss the banana.  (Kiss fingertips.)
Peel the banana.  (Slowly pull down one finger at a time as if peeling a banana.)
Share the love.  (Open your palm and pretend to blow a kiss.)

CHECK IT OUT! CHEER  (Teresa Nicks)

Use this cheer when a child answers a question correctly:
"Check it out!  Check it out!
Child's name knows what he's (she's) talking about!?"
Pretend to touch index finger to tongue and then hold up as you say,
"Psssss!"  (Like it's really hot!)


A teacher who taught at a Christian school said this is how she ends her day:

Teacher:  May the Lord watch between me and thee.
Children:  While we are absent one from another.

Although most of you teach in public schools where you can't use this idea, it was so sweet I wanted to pass it along.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
