Watch Me Whip & Nae Nae

There are hundreds of ways to get to know students each year. One activity I like to use is one I call SIGNS. We form a giant circle and each person gets a turn to say his/her name and then some action with his/her body. A student will pretend to throw a football and say "Cole"--and then the chain of students spirals around the room with each saying "Cole" and throwing a ball. It gives one a bit of attention and a bit of POWER, too.  Hmmm.... everyone has to do what I say they have to!
The big gesture I saw repeated in class after class today (other than kicking a soccer ball) was the Whip and Nae Nae.  Had to look it up on YouTube tonight, since I am so out of touch.
Here it is:

I can't imagine why they laughed at me dancing.
