Good Morning in Sign Language

Learn how to sign good morning – you get to use it every day!

1. This is a two part sign. First sign “good” by touching one flat hand to your chin and bringing it down to meet your other hand, which is at about waist
height and palm up.
2. Next sign “morning” by bending the elbow of one arm, leaving the arm parallel to your body, and resting the finger tips in the crook of the elbow of your second arm. With the second hand, bring the flat and palm up hand from under the first arm up and towards you – like the sun coming up over the horizon.
3. Put together, this is a Good – Morning!

Teaching Tips:

  • Integrate music into teaching games for kids. To the tune of Happy Birthday, sing, “Good morning to you! Good morning to you! Good morning dear (insert child’s name)! Good morning to you!” Practice signing good morning each time you sing the words.
  • What makes a good morning? Is it getting up early to play? Is it having a yummy breakfast? Ask your child how they have a good morning and practice the sign as you chat.

Good morning. Sign ‘good’ from your chin to your hand, good. And ‘morning.’ Your arm is like the sun coming up. Morning. Good morning.
