is a fun greeting to do with students. You begin this greeting by turning to
your neighbor and holding up your right hand with your palm facing him. Then
your neighbor puts up her right hand in the same fashion. The two of you lock
thumbs, so that you form butterfly wings with your hands. When this is done,
both of you wiggle your thumbs and greet each other “Good Morning or Good
Afternoon”. Continue this around the circle until everyone has been greeted in
the butterfly wave. Be sure to remind students about what makes a friendly
greeting: eye contact, face your neighbor, smile, clear voice, genuine, etc.
