Cheers is a social networking app designed to allow users to share and celebrate happy and uplifting moments in their lives with others. Users may share anything from time spent family to a shout-out for a favorite song. Creating a “Celebration” allows and encourages other users to join in, sharing their own related happy experiences. “Cheers” are short and simple messages that can be accentuated with a location, picture, subtitle, and description for sharing. These “Cheers” may then be added to a pre-existing Celebration, or begin an entirely new Celebration for others to join. Additional features include the ability to connect cheers with Facebook and other social media sites, mobile contacts, likes, and birthdays as well as a streaming timeline of other users’ celebratory posts. Because Cheers is an open social network there may be rare occasions of inappropriate content, language, or suggestive themes. This app is recommended to any user ages 12 and up.


THIS APP IS GOOD FOR KIDS WHO NEED HELP WITH:

Organization

Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.

cheers 2Cheers allows users to share any happy, uplifting, or exciting moment from their day. These moments are sorted into pre-existing or customized categories for other users to view and make additions to. For example, when enjoying a cold iced-tea on the beach a user might choose to join a "Day at the Beach" category, or simply create their own. Sorting each "Cheer" into a descriptive category allows other users to view and make associations with posts. Users will practice the Organization thinking skill when determining how to tag, describe, and sort their submissions to Cheers for easy location by friends, family members, and the app's large community.

Self-Awareness

Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Cheers is an excellent way for users to become more aware of good and uplifting feelings and moments throughout their day. Many times individuals can become "caught up" in a daily routine full of stress and obligations. This app helps users take the time to notice and make note of small moments of happiness and peace throughout the day and share them with others for discussion. Users may spend time simply browsing the shared moments of others, starting a "Celebration" for others to join in on, or simply create a happy moment of their own. Using Cheers can help users exercise the Self-Awareness thinking skill by asking them to consider their own mood, thoughts, and feelings as well as those of other individuals around them who participate in and comment on these "Celebrations." Cheers is an excellent way for users to practice awareness of their own feelings and the feelings of others.

Reading & Writing

Users can practice using short, descriptive sentences on Cheers. Each new post invites users to insert a photograph with a short title and a description. Practicing describing situations using a small number of characters can help users create clear, concise, and effective language. Users can practice describing settings, emotions, and situations when sharing happy and uplifting moments from their day, great practice for any writer. Additionally, browsing the stream of uploaded content in Cheers gives users practice reading others' posts, assessing effective writing from unclear or incoherent submissions. Cheers is a great alternative way for young writers to practice forming and reading sentences and descriptions without the pressure of being graded.
