Christmas Ladders Game | Genki English This is a great game I used for classes (or parties) where I didn’t see the kids that often, so their skills weren’t that hot yet, but I still wanted to do some long form listening with them. And it’s also one of those games where I first though “meh” but then tried it myself and realized just how much adrenaline gets released! 1. Teach the kids some new Christmas words ( Ninja Tip: The Genki Christmas song is the easiest way) 2. Have the students make two lines. 3. e.g. One Christmas, Santa ( 1st kids run!) 7. Bottom a) stand up b) run down the middle of the ladder, over the “rungs” towards the “top” of the ladder (into the screen in this case) c) come back down the outside of the ladder (from the top to the bottom) d) From the bottom go back up the rungs to reach their own place. e) sit down in their own seat. 8. 9. Ninja Tips: It can also be a bit difficult to explain using only words, so its best to act out what the kids have to do yourself beforehand. P.S.
