Interesting fun fact about cheer leading, it was original started as an all male sport in 1903. They called them Yell Squads. Women did not join the sport until around the time of World War 2. Now with that said who is ready to yell and cheer?
What does it mean to be a cheerleader for Dewey’s Read-a-thon?
It means having a great time while encouraging others by leaving a cheer or rhyme on their blog .
You can read and cheer, infact we encourage it!~
Anyone can sign-up to be a cheerleader! There are some who solely devote their time to cheering but many readers enjoy cheering. Most readers will take an hour or two to go around and encourage other readers. While reading is the main focus of the read-a-thon it’s the interactions and connections you make that make the event so special.
How much time do I need to devote?
You can devote as much as 12 hours to as little as an hour. It’s whatever works best for your schedule!~
How does this work?
There will be hundreds of readers to visit during the Read-A-Thon but don’t fret you do not have to cheer for them all. Just a few days before the event you will be assigned a cheering squad based on the number of hours you said you could cheer. Each squad is then assigned a group of readers but you can ofcourse cheer for those listed in the other squads!~
Hip Hip Hooray!~ Now what you say?
