Hello, it's getting a bit cold but there are plenty of fantastic ideas to warm up your classrooms with lots of Genki fun!!

Christmas Stuff

Christmas is coming and kids love to do Christmas activities! This year there is also a full new Christmas theme on the website featuring A4 picture cards, a free song and the Reindeer Race Game.

There is also the Christmas ideas page with advent calendars, talking Christmas cards, letters to Santa and some brilliant Christmas Music Scores - great for 6th graders!

And of course CD vol IV has the Genki Christmas song, game and speaking guide!

Harry Potter Game, New Games

I've been sent some really great games this month, including "Feelings Frenzy" by Ruth, the "Hand Power/Hexagon/Do you have...? Game" by Brian Shepherd and Bridget McNamara has sent in "3 Piece" and the brilliant Harry Potter Game. Check out the rest of the games here:

6th Graders and what to do with them!

This is one topic that crops up every year, so if you have problems coming up with cool ideas for cool 6th graders, then check out this article:

Junior High and Senior High Ideas

People are always asking me about ideas for Junior and Senior High. The thing is that I don't have the time nor experience to produce any myself. But I figured that the amazing Genki English viewers may be able to come up with some ideas!! So I've set up a new discussion board just for sharing these ideas. It's all very new, but if we all get together I'm sure we can make a great resource! It's a fantastic feeling to know that your ideas are being used in classrooms all over the World!! If everyone contributes just one idea it'll be great! So get your thinking caps on and share your lesson plans!
( There's also a new jobs board available, as well as the very popular Discussion Board! )

Free teaching guide videos

Just a quick word to let you know that yes, we are still giving away video teaching guides for all the songs on the CDs. They've proved so popular that we've decided to keep the offer, basically you order the set of 4 CD/CDROMs and get the Teaching Guide CDROM for free! Can't say fairer than that can we!

Or if you'd like your school to pay for them, check out the groovy Superpack!!

And Finally,

Wrap up warm, don't catch a cold and enjoy November!
Just one last little word, teach your kids lots of words like "Great!", "Fantastic!", "Well done" etc. , they tell you an action to do (like "dance", "sing" etc.") and then have to praise you! A fun little warm up!

Be genki,
