5 Best Good Morning Songs for Kids to Start a Fresh Morning

Good morning songs are a refreshing way to start the day. When you’re introducing new kids to the classroom or letting the group settle in, a good morning song can be just the right thing to cheer everybody up.

Preschool children and toddlers benefit from learning new words and this expands their vocabulary. What we love about these good morning songs is that they are cheerful and begin the day on a beautiful note. There are themes related to the sun and moon, Sesame Street characters, and so much more.

Up there in space

I see the sun

It’s hot and bright

At night it’s gone

Hello moon

Hello stars

I just want to say hi

Who doesn’t love the characters of Sesame Street? It’s one of the kids’ favourite shows and this song is a fantastic way to get kids acquainted with basic alphabets. You use this for good morning kindergarten song classes. We know, we know. There’s no Cookie monster featured in this song but Mr Sun is just as good! It’s a classic which is why we recommend it.

Song Lyrics 

Good morning,
Mister Sun,
Welcome to the sky-
Shine on all the
Little creatures
As you’re passing by.
Stop yawning,
Mister Sun,
Time to make a day.
Brightening every
Little corner
As you go your way.

The moon and stars are
Fine at night.
But when it’s day,
We need your light
So, we say, “Keep shining,
Mister Sun,
Smiling in the blue.”
You’ll see all the
Little children,
Smiling back at you.
And birds and bees,
The flowers, the trees,
The whole wide world
Will seem to say,
“Good Morning,
Good Morning,”
Mister Sun.
Good Morning,
Have a nice day.
