”Whoooooo, Whoooooo,, Whoooooo,!”

Casey Jones Applause: Hold left arm straight out, palm up, using right hand start clapping on shoulder, slowly speeding up while moving down left arm, until clapping hands, then use right hand to make motion of pulling whistle cord and go "Whoo, whoo" followed by crashing sound.

Paul Bunyan Cheer: Divide group in 2 sections. Have group 1 say "Chip" when you point to them and have group 2 say "Chop" when pointed at. Have the groups speed up and at the end yell "Timber ... Whoosh".

Patriotic Applause: Shout, "USA" and thrust hand with double fist skyward, shout "Hooray, onward and upward".

Superscout Cheer or Yell: Faster then a speeding bullet, more powerful then a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. It's Superscout!

Southern NJ Council

Paul Bunyan Cheer 2:  Make motions as if sawing down a tree, meanwhile, alternately blowing out and sucking in air with "Shhhh" sounds. After all these, and the tree is cut down, yell: "Timber” with a hand along side your mouth.

Dragon Applause: "Roar, hissss, roar!!! Hissss, Roar!!!"

Canned Applause: Use any size can or container with a lid that can be lifted easily. Instruct the group that they are to applaud while the lid is off. For a little more fun throughout your meeting, use cans of graduated sizes, increasing the volume of the applause with the size of can.

If you were facing east, what would be on your left hand?

4.      Bluebirds bathe in the blue birdbath.
5.      She sheared six shabby sick sheep.
