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.
