Good Morning Songs for Kids

I know what it’s like to be an ESL teacher and constantly searching for new and fun English teaching materials to incorporate into your class… trust me I’ve spent hours doing it!

Probably one of the most common songs that teachers look for are Good morning songs for kids. Kids need some form of routine and a signal to know when something is starting and ending, hence why a Good morning song is such a great cue for the start of the class. Starting the class off with a song is also a wonderful way to set the tone for the rest of the class… it’s going to be FUN!

These are 2 Good Morning songs that I use in my ESL beginners class. If you’re looking for more variations and versions, you can also check out The ultimate collection of Good Morning songs for ESL children that I compiled together of my favorite ones that are suitable for ESL children! (This was done after a weekend of watching videos on YouTube!)

Colour songs for ESL children

This is a really easy and simple song to use to teach the colours to ESL children. It’s got a catchy tune and you can really get the kids involved and participating. When I start off teaching it, I sing the first part:

“What colour, what colour, what colour is this?”

then have them reply with the second part:

“it’s red, red… red, Red, RED!”

(I encourage them to say the colours as loud as possible… even yell them out!) It’s a great song for repetition and really helps them learn their colours fast.

Colour songs for ESL children – English Language Games

The next level to this song is, I select the kids that are advancing faster (the ones that learned the colours) and I ask them to be my “Colour Teachers” (or “helpers”) and I get them to sing the first part of the colour song and the rest of the kids reply with the second part. This is just one way to keep the kids that are advancing faster, constantly engaged and participating in class. One of the main reasons why the advanced learners in the class start to cause distractions for the other kids is simply because they aren’t being challenged any more to continue to learn, so by giving those kids a new challenge as the “Colour Teachers” you keep them involved in the learning process of the whole class.

Check out my other favorite colour songs for ESL children in The Best List of Colour Songs for ESL children that I compiled together.  I have to admit I spent a whole weekend watching videos on YouTube to put together the best colour songs I found for ESL beginners!

The ultimate collection of “Good Morning” songs for ESL children

I spent so much time on youtube watching tons of videos and filtering ones that I could use with my ESL beginners class, that I finally just decided to compile them all together here in one place!
