Lion Cubs have had a good week!  They are getting used to the routines and are transitioning from activities The only thing is they don’t really like picking up their toys!  We’re going to be working on that a little more.

This week we started on our Bible verse for the month of September.  “God looked at everything He had made.  It was very good!  Genesis 1:31.

We are also learning a new prayer every month.  This month it is the “Angel of God” prayer.  The words are at the bottom of this letter.

Next week we will be talking about farms and farm animals.  We’ll be reading books about that!  Our color of the week will be green.

We sent home Scholastic book order forms today.  You do not need to feel pressured to order.  If you want books, it’s an easy way to get good books for your child.  In addition, our classroom can earn free books, so it is a win/win!  If you order online, please do so by Friday, Sept. 13 and use our class code TPGT4.

Trash bag sales are starting next week.  More info to come on that!

Here is the prayer.  It is a sweet prayer that I used to say with my children at bedtime every night.  It is so comforting to know that angels are watching over us all day and night.  Please work on this at home.  You are your first teacher of your child in matters of faith!  They learn so much from you and it would be great to learn this prayer together.

ANGEL OF GOD, MY GUARDIAN DEAR,

TO WHOM GOD’S LOVE COMMITS ME HERE,

EVER THIS DAY (NIGHT)

BE AT MY SIDE,

TO LIGHT AND GUARD,

TO RULE AND GUIDE.

AMEN.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see everyone next week!
