Elvis Cheer

It's fun to have the crowd cheer for you, especially if you are doing something smart. So if someone in class does exceptional work, shares a correct answer with the class when called upon, or just needs some praise, we cheer for them. The Elvis cheer goes like this:
You lift up your collar, bend one knee, stick your hands out with one or two fingers pointing, scrunch the upper lip, and say, "Thank you. Thank you very much." If we really want to show our enthusiasm for the exceptional work, we shake, shake, shake that leg, and move those hips while repeating, "Uh, thank you very much, uh huh huh, thank you very much."

Now that's FUN! Don't tell anyone.
