By rocket, by rocket.

In the classroom or at home ........

The Genki English songs all have gestures and games to go with them, and of course kids love pretending to be cars, boats and trains. Using music, pictures and gestures makes sure as many of the kids as possible will remember the English.


This question may seem tricky, but the main point of the song is to practise modes of transport. As with the sports song, the best way is to mime the actions of each form of transport. Also, the teacher can sing the first "I came here byc.", then the kids sing the next two repeats.

It's even better if one group says the first repeat, then another group says the second repeat ( whilst making the gesture of course!). See who can sing the loudest. This motivates even the coolest 5th grade class.

Recommended Game:
The recommended game for this theme is the "Do you have?" game or Leapfrog Game

Worksheet: If you teach writing, a good activity is for the kids to look at the software and write down the name of each vehicle on the worksheet. If not, you could try the "Grand Prix Game" from the website. Enlarge pictures of some of the vehicles and draw a race track on the board. Split the kids into teams, one team for each vehicle. Play some music, whilst the music is playing the kids pass a ball around. Stop the music. Ask the kid who is holding the ball a question e.g. "How did you get here?" whilst pointing at a picture of a car. If the kid can answer, their team's vehicle can move one space along the racetrack! Play the music and try again! First team to the winning line is the winner!
