THE

CHILDREN'S FRIEND.

ORGAN OF THE PRIMARY ASSOCIATIONS OF THE
CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS.

[blocks in formation]

Oh, may this flower unfold to you
Visions of beauty sweet and new;
This book of golden pages trace
Your sacred joys and deeds of grace;
May all the fruits of this strange tree
Luscious and rosy-tinted be;
This path through fields of knowledge go;
This house with love's content o’erflow;
This landscape glitter with the dew
Of blessed hopes and friendships true;
This fountain's living crystal cheer,
As fail the spring that once were dear;
This casket with such gems be stored
As shine in lives that love the Lord.

FIRST GRADE.

LESSONS FOR MONTH.

[ocr errors]

The lessons to be used in this grade for the year 1903 will be arranged somewhat similar to what is called "The Circle Work" in Kindergarten. It is not expected that officers in the Primary Associations who have never studied this system of education will be able to give the lessons as they might be given by an experienced Kindergartener, but, we trust that all, both teachers and children, will be assisted by and interested in the new plan.

Whenever it is possible this grade should meet in a separate room, the addition of a piano or organ will greatly assist in this department. If, however, it is not possible to have either the teachers should be thoroughly familiar with the songs to be sung.

We desire to emphasize again, the lessons must not be read, stories, songs, games, etc., must be thoroughly memorized before the lessons are given.

Arrange the seats in your room so that your children are as close to you as possible, let them feel your personality, love and sympathy. Do not begin your lesson until all are seated quietly and in order. Speak in a moderate tone of voice. Children imi. tate their teachers; if they are orderly and quiet, speaking gently and kindly, the children are very apt to do the same.

Children receive more benefit from lessons given if there is considerable repetition;they need to be told the same thing a great many times before they can remember it and so in these lessons for the little ones there will be considerable repetition; for instance, the same prayer and songs will be used at each lesson for a month. Two new stories and two new games will be given each month. After these stories and games have been related once, give the little children a choice by asking them which story and which game they prefer.

When the children have taken their seats and all is quiet, ask them to bow their heads and close their eyes and repeat after you the hymn “Lord I would own Thy tender care,” from the Sunday School Hymn Book, page 194.

After the prayer, sing one verse from “The Children's Song Prayer," from the same book, page 72.

These opening exercises will be the same for each meeting
