Looking for a great good morning song for preschool? I have a good morning song for kids that everyone LOVES!
I sat down to write a post about my circle time routine and give lesson plans for the first week of school but as I wrote out my circle time routine for the start of the year and my best tips (spoiler alert – keep it as short as possible), I realized I never wrote out my Good Morning Song lyrics or shared the video here on the blog. I shared the Good Morning Song in a video No Time For Flash Cards Facebook Page, and it’s been viewed over 270,000 times, but I never shared it here. Please note that I didn’t write this song. It’s one of the many preschool songs I have picked up over the years of teaching.
I love this good morning song, but it’s not set to a recognizable tune. You’ll need to watch the video to learn the tune and the actions.
Good Morning Song
Good morning to you, good morning to you!
We are all in our places with bright shiny faces and I say to you, good morning to you!
Good morning ____(child’s name), good morning ___(child’s name), good morning __(child’s name) we’re glad you’re here today!
(Continue until every child and every teacher in the classroom is named.)
Good morning everyone we’re glad you’re here today! Hooray!
I hope this song gives you another option for a good morning song that might work for your class. While it’s my favorite and I always start out with it, sometimes a class needs something new for the right fit. Being preschool teachers, we have to be flexible and having options is key! So try this out and if you have a great good morning song you use, please share it in comments. I’d love to hear it.
Also here is a link to the circle time chant I mention in the video. I use them both at circle time but when the kids are wiggly I drop the chant. The key to a great circle time is making it successful for your students.
