Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Teaching Meals and Foods in American Sign Language
David Burba


This song, along with a pictorial ASL glossary,
is available on the Kids Love to Sign™ Program.


     

When I wake up in the morning, 
the first thing I want to do,
Is get myself dressed and go down to the kitchen 
to get myself some food.

Breakfast time! 
I’m hungry! 
Here’s what I like the most: 
Juice, cereal, melon,
and a piece of buttered toast.

Don’t miss your breakfast!
Listen to what I say.
Now I have energy, 
Enough to start my day.

When my mommy says, 
“It’s lunch time, 
and today is a special treat.
We’re driving downtown to meet your friends
at a restaurant where we’ll eat.”

Lunch time! 
At a restaurant!
I can order lunch just my size: 
milk, a sandwich, fruit, 
and a really fun surprise.

Eat right at lunch time.
Listen to what I say.
I need more energy
to get me through my day.

Now I’ve been playing all afternoon 
with my friends in the park.
I know that I have to go home now, 
I can tell because it’s getting dark.

Dinner time! 
I’m hungry! 
I wonder what my mommy made: 
chicken, rice, broccoli, 
and a glass of lemonade.

Eat right at dinner.
Listen to what I say,
Building strong bodies, strength for another day.

The Benefits of Teaching Sign Language to Children

     Howard Gardner, psychologist and educator, established himself as an expert on the topic of intelligences. Gardner’s Theory of Intelligences has had a profound impact on the thinking and practices in education. Teaching young children sign language utilizes the 7 Multiple Intelligences coined by Dr. Gardner:

  • Linguistic: You always say the word that you are signing.
  • Logical-Mathematical: Children see the pattern of language and how it is formed.
  • Spatial: Children see the signs being created.
  • Bodily-Kinesthetic: Signing involves the movement of hands, students can ‘feel’ the words.
  • Musical: It is easy to add signs to familiar songs and nursery rhymes.
  • Interpersonal: Children can sign with a teacher, parent, or friends.
  • Intrapersonal: Children sign during pretend play, while listening to a story, or playing on their own.
