The Best Buenos Días Songs for Kids Learning Spanish
buenos días songs for kids

Inside: Buenos días songs and song lyrics.

Greetings songs and good morning songs are the perfect place to start, whether you’re learning Spanish at home or teaching a class. My favorite version is this one:


The traditional Buenos días song lyrics, which are in the videos above, go like this:

Buenos días, buenos días.
¿Cómo estás? ¿Cómo estás?
Muy bien, gracias, muy bien, gracias.
¿Y usted? ¿Y usted?

Spanish Playground had the great idea of singing it like this, to avoid the mix of tú and usted in the songs:

Buenos días, buenos días.
¿Cómo estás? ¿Cómo estás?
Muy bien, gracias, muy bien, gracias.
¿Y tú, qué tal? ¿Y tú, qué tal?

Another idea I’ve heard is to incorporate the days of the week, if you’re teaching a class. Then the song could go like this (credit to Jane Vander Beek):

Buenos días, hoy es __________.
¿Cómo estás? ¿Cómo estás?
Muy bien, gracias, muy bien, gracias.
¿Y, usted? ¿Y, usted?

I also have a Buenos días preschool lesson with activities, printables, links to vidoes, and games, if you would like more ideas! I love starting off classes with a greeting song. Saludos are really important in Hispanic countries, and tie in authentic culture.

Of course, replace buenos días with buenas tardes and buenas noches when the kids are ready. I find using actions or a prop like this helps:
