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! 🙂
You sing the song just like the Animals Picture Book,
- Split the kids into 11 groups.
- Each group gets one day to sing.
- 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.
Here are the VIP mini cards:
And I just made up some A4 Flashcards for you:
