Courageous Knows How to Have Fun

October 14, 2020 | Chloe Jang

Courageous knows how to have fun.

And they know how to have fun together.

I hear students saying, “Come on, join in!” and “Look at (name)! Go (name)!” They know to include and encourage one another.

Here are some of the ways we have been having fun:

1. Shouting your name

Sometimes, we like to shout our name, one at a time, as our morning greeting. It helps us to feel known and wake up.

2.  Gonoodle & Just Dance

We need wiggle breaks! We stretch, calm our minds and hearts, exercise in place or just dance. YMCA Just Dance has been a popular request.

3. Courageous chant

From the very first week, we have been shouting “Courageous” at the end of the day to remind us that we are courageous and that we worked hard. Now, students remind me that we must do it and begin counting down before we head out the door or log off zoom.


All of these have been bringing us closer to one another, knitting a tighter community. Excited to hear more of their encouragements and see their participations as we grow our list of the ways we have fun.
