12 Genki Days of Christmas!

A few years ago a very genki group of teachers including Margit and Roy got together to come up with the idea of a simpler version of the 12 Days of Christmas.    And finally I’ve got a finished version for you! 🙂


It’s on Facebook right now and also the new Vol. 14 and in the Teacher’s Set.

You sing the song just like the Animals Picture Book,

  1. Split the kids into 11 groups.
  2. Each group gets one day to sing.
  3. Everyone sings “Five Gold Rings” because you know it’s the most awesome line 🙂

Like with the  Animal sounds  it is pretty awesome as you can tell from Margit’s kids here!

Margit substituted “Santa” here and did it a little slower, which is very cool, and I wanted to keep a little more genkiness & true love alive this year 🙂

Here are the Lyrics:

12 Candy Canes
11 Christmas Turkeys
10 Christmas Candles
9 Christmas Puddings
8 Christmas Stockings
7 Christmas Snowmen
6 Christmas Angels
5 Gold Rings
4 Christmas Presents
3 Christmas Cards
2 Christmas Trees
And a cute little Baby Monkey!

All the vocab is in the previous  Genki English Christmas songs so it makes this really easy to do.

You can find Candy Cane, Snowman, Tree, Card, Present & Stocking in the Genki Christmas song.

Angels, Candles, & Turkey are in the operatic Let’s decorate the tree song, and of course Baby Monkey is everywhere! 🙂

 

Here are the VIP mini cards:

And I just made up some A4 Flashcards for you:

Be genki,

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Hi Richard, thank you for putting this up! I will use it right away! I have a group of 9 year olds learning how many are there? there are 5 bla blas…so today we will firstly revise the how many are there? question using these flash cards, and then learn this song. I will also combine it with Where are the Chrsitmas presents, there are 5 Christmas presents under the tree… I will try to make up some worksheets to go with it…
