The word on the street is… cheer
To cheer is to show support with words of encouragement or congratulation.
Stand up and cheer! The Takalani Sesame Bird Games are here, and Big Bird is in the alphabet-singing contest. Sing the alphabet with Big Bird to cheer him on! Cheer him in any language!
WORD PLAY: Shout this cheer to your good buddy:
Two, four six, eight.
Guess who I think is really great?
You are! You are!
You are a star!
