Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I did the Lost Sheep lesson last week in my Sunday School class, and my three to six year olds just loved it! They especially liked when I, the shepherd, came in looking for the lost sheep. They listened very well to the story, and participated a lot. I got this lesson off of your sample page of the site, and as soon as I saw the success, I became a subscriber. I love all of the fun information and activities on your site. It is well worth the money paid. I plan on using this site for all of my lessons in the future. I just want to say thanks! I know that this site will help our little Sunday School class grow in numbers and spirit. I'm so excited to see what happens. God Bless all of you!!!!! Sincerely, Nichole Adrian

"Spin the Lion" Bible Lesson Review Game
1. Prepare the flat cat spinner before class using four paper plates, paper, paint and glue.

3. In class children spin the cat. The child who has the lion's face facing him or her picks a sticky note from the lion's mouth and then answers the question or performs the activity relating to the story.
4. If you don’t want to make the lion paper plate spinner, you can use this spinner game.
5. Print out the cat spinner pattern and cut it out.
6. Place a small bead in the middle of the spinner circle, then place the cat spinner over the bead matching up the center dot with the bead. Insert a straight pin that has a big head into the cat spinner and through the bead. Bend the pin on the bottom so that it doesn’t come out. Have your children sit in a circle and take turns spinning the spinner and doing what it says on the spinner. Have a list of questions ready to ask your students.

There isn't a Sunday that goes by that I don't check the resource room for something to add to our Sunday School lesson or a whole lesson all together. For a long time I just enjoyed Danielle's sight, but since I've been teaching Sunday School I am so thankful to have The Resource |Room. The Sunday after the terrible bombings I decided to do something other than my planned lesson. I did God's Masterpiece to remind the children and myself how important and special each one of us is to God. This last Sunday our church had a special service on "The Greatest of these is love..." and so I chose "God's love is Immeasurable." I always take the lessons and develop a worksheet for my students, because they love to read for me and write the answers. You always have so much for me to work from and it is such a marvelous help. I always share news about your site with our friends and parishioners, when I have the chance. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it! Janet
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your site!! I teach 3 & 4 year olds in my Sunday School class and your site is such an inspiration! If I don't find the exact idea I'm looking for, I get inspired by all the great stuff and modify something to work for "my bunch". Jeanne Young
