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. ย ย And finally I’ve got a finished version for you! ๐
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 ๐
Like with the ย Animal soundsย ย 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 ๐
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 ย Genki English Christmas songsย so it makes this really easy to do.
You can findย 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:
