Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com1Warm Up Game!Target Grade: Kindergarten to adults ( I used it in my TEDx talk!)Target English: Greetings, verbsNEW: Check out the new Genki Disco Warm Up songI use this at the beginning of each lesson, to get the kids awake, out of their seats and tointroduce some important classroom English. If things get out of hand later on, thepreparation you do here will be very useful in getting things back under control!At the beginning you simply shout out commands at the kids. First of all simple things like"stand up" or "sit down" are OK, along with "good morning". Also, try tricking them by saying"stand up" when they are already standing.As you meet the kids more you can add words such as jump, spin (a big favourite), eat,drink, cheer, clap,Later boy, girl can be added (much laughter when boysstand up when you say "girls stand up"). Also big, smalle.g. big jump, small jump and quiet, loud e.g. quiet clap,loud cheer.Even 1st years can get quite advanced with things suchas "girls, 5 big spin jumps"Or try using "play" e.g. "Play the piano, play tennis" or things like "Watch TV"For "clap" or "cheer" get them to vary the volume as you raise or lower your arm - it's a great"volume control" for the moments when you do want them to be quiet! If you want somemore words, try "cry" or even "zip it!"Once you get past these basics, try some other topics from the songs ( e.g. emotions fromthe “How are you?” song), and then start asking questions that the kids can answer. Youdon't just have to stick to commands. richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com2The Lines QuizTarget Grade: Elementary 1 to adultsTarget English: Questions and vocab practiceI’d recommend this for every lesson to make sure the kids remember and can use theEnglish you’ve taught!1. Split the class into two groups. One lines up on the left side, one on the right2. You ask the front kid in each group a question.3. The first one to answer correctly gets to sit down. The other goes to the back of his/herteam.4. The winning team is the first where everyone is sat down!Make sure the questions come thick and fast. Examples include "What's your name?" "Howold are you" "What's this?" "What colour is this?" etc. etc. You can use anything from thecurriculum page on the Genki English site: http://genkienglish.net/curriculum.htmThe magic of this game is that it gets the kids used to hearing questions and respondingstraight away, without all the customary "errr, ehhh" type pauses. It also lets the kidsdistinguish between "How are you?" and "How old are you?" and is a great way to pick upwhich themes need reviewing and which ones are OK.This game is also great in Junior High, where all the kids want to sit down. Sometimes inElementary School they want to lose just so that they'll get to go again! richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com3I Like Everything!Target Grade: Grade 1 to adultTarget English: "I like. nouns" or any conversationThis is a really cool game for quickly practicing vocab or conversation.1. Teach "Do you like.?" and four bits of vocab (e.g. apples, bananas etc. or eating, singing,etc.)2. Tell the kids to stand up3. Get out a stop watch and as you say "Go!" start the watch.4. The kids pair up. They say the following conversationA: "Hello"B: "Hello"A: "Do you like apples?"B: "Yes, I do! Do you like bananas?"A: "No I don't!"B: "Thank you"A: "Goodbye"5. They change partners and repeat the conversation. BUT this time they ask about adifferent food.6. They find another partner. And again ask with a different food.7. Repeat again, and again until they have used all 4 questions.8. They sit down9. When the last child sits down, the teacher stops the stopwatch!You can also use it for conversation, such as "How are you?" or "Where's the.?". Teachthem four replies to the question e.g. I'm hungry, I'm OK, I'm happy, I'm tired. When theyplay the game, the first time they reply "I'm OK", the second time "I'm happy" etc. etc.This is a great way to get the kids ready to sing the "How are you?" Song! richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com4Mingle!Target Language: Any question you can answer with a number!Target Grade: 1 to 6Now "mingle" probably isn't very high on your "words to teach" list, and quite rightly so. Butthe real magic of this game comes when making groups.1. Get rid of any tables and chairs and get the kids together in one big group.2. Whilst singing a "mingle chant" the kids move around, mingling with each other.3. The kids ask you a question that you can answer with a number e.g. "How old are you?"or "What time is it?",4. You answer and the kids get into groups of that number e.g. you say "I'm 4 years old" andthe kids get into groups of four.5. Repeat from 2.Once you've done it with "mingle" you can change the verb any time you want to play e.g."swim" where the kids swim around whilst mingling, or "dance" or "hop" or anything really.It's the quickest and best way to make groups and to teach Genki English rule no. 2:Losing Just Means Try Again! richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com5Monster GameTarget Grade: Kindergarten to adultsTarget English: "How are you?"1. The kids all line up at one end side of the gym.2. This side of the gym is the "safe" side. But the kids reallywant to get across to the other side, where there is a sweetshop. Today all the sweets are free!3. But, between the kids and the sweet shop is a monster! At first the teacher is themonster. Ask the kids to guess what your favourite food is. They'll shout out some foods(nice practice!), then you say that your favourite food is human!4. Tell them that they can only cross to the sweet shop if the monster is in a good mood andisn't hungry. Ask them how they can check on the mood of the monster. After a moment afew kids will say "Ask him/her "How are you?""5. All together the kids ask the monster "How are you?"6. Do a few "I'm sorry?"s to get the kids to shout in big loud voices (so that all the kids joinin, not just the super genki ones!)7. The monster says an answer, e.g. "I'm OK".8. The kids repeat the answer (important practice) and move forward one step ( no jumping!)9. Repeat from 5.10. But if the answer is "I'm hungry!", the kids have to run back to their safe wall! Any kidwho is tagged on the way back becomes a monster for the next round!11. Play again! richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Genki English Top Ten Games eBook wwww.GenkiEnglish.com6Nemo GameTarget English: What can you sea? I can see a .Target Grade: ElementaryHere's a very fun game for younger kids to teach with the "Under the Sea" theme.1. The kids mime swimming around in a circle in the middle of the class.2. If you have lots of kids (say 30 in a class) then have two or three concentric circles, oneinside the other. Each circle swims in opposite directions.3. The kids shout out "Nemo, Nemo, what can you see?"4. The teacher, who is Nemo, looks outside the window and shouts out "I can see a ." plusone of the sea animals from the song.5. Whilst still swimming the kids repeat the answer and do the mime.6. Continue from 3.7. But. if the teacher says "I can see a shark!" two kids, who were hidden outside, rush intothe classroom from different directions.8. The other kids all rush to touch the wall of the class, where they are safe.9. If any of them are tagged by the sharks on their way to the wall, they are eaten andbecome sharks for the next round.10. Continue from 3.This is a great variation of the What time is it, Mr Wolf? game, and thankyou to the teachers in Nara for the inspiration. Just using the name"Nemo" makes it really exciting for the kids.For the first two sharks, it's good to get the "kids who've had too muchsugar for breakfast and are disturbing the class" to help out as it keeps them under control.The main point of the game is to get the kids over the "just words" and into the "able to giveanswers to questions" style of lesson.Picture cards are on the site at http://genkienglish.net/underthesea.htm richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om

Get the next person in each team to stand up and continue from 4This is a really good game that the kids get into. When I first tried it with my first years I wasat the back of the class, sorting out the cards when the first kid spoke. I was sure someonehad the TV on as this little 6 year old came out with this sentence that sounded perfect.For older kids (from years 3 up) have the colours at the front right, and a set of adjectivecards (I have ones for cute, heavy, big, expensive etc.). This time the kids have to say "I like" adjective colour noun. Or try "At .

Pick a number in your head (write it down if it's a big number so you don't forget!) and letthe kids decide the team to go first with rock, paper scissors. Let's pretend we chose 18 asthe answer.5. They guess a number (hopefully they will all agree on the number) and you draw a linefrom their golf ball to the hole. If they are spot on then the line goes right into the hole. If not,stop the line either too short or too far from the hole.6. Draw the ball and write their team number inside andunderneath write the number they guessed. e.g. here team1 guessed 16, which is less than 18 so it didn't quite makeit. You can make the line go wiggly or high up into the "air"for suspense.7. Let the next team guess. The closer they get to the holethe better they will be able to narrow it down to the number.8. Once a team guesses the number, they get a point and get to go first on the next round. richard grahamw w w w. g e n k i e n g l i s h . c om
