Top 3 Summer Lesson Ideas


So you might think that my top five summer lessons would be:

  1. Summer ClothesΒ – featuring the eternally popular Baby Money.
  2. Summer SportsΒ – great for an after Summer review with “What did you do in the Summer?”
  3. Under the SeaΒ – check out the Nemo Game!
  4. Pirates ColoursΒ – Ooo arrrr!
  5. Mr Octopus – (try the intro of this animation on a projector with younger kids, up to about 6, they just go crazy when the waves start to move. Β I have no idea why – but give it a try!)


However ….. those of you who know Genki English will know the basically MBA level psychology behind everything we do ( I can …, Β ending on a positive note, Β Superhero poses to get genki, etc.) Β  so ….. my real top three lessons for Summer are ….

  1. Let’s build a snowmanΒ – even more popular this year thanks to Frozen!
  2. Winter SportsΒ – super cool stuff.
  3. The Ice Cream SongΒ – speaks for itself I think. πŸ™‚


The reason?

It’s simple.

If you want to ace a test, Β you picture yourself with the final successful result paper.

If you want to speak fluent English, Β you picture yourself speaking fluently toΒ Scarlett Johansson (even if it’s only on your phone πŸ™‚ )

And if you want to cool down?

Spend all day looking at pictures of snowmen, winter scenes and ice creamΒ – an instant, psychological drop in temperature!

Remember what the Good Cat says – Β  just chill!


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...
