Today I’m going to teach you only one word.  But it’s a scary one.  Demons!  In the beginning, God made only good angels.  But one of the angels did not want to obey God.  His name was Satan.  Some of the other angels decided to follow Satan.  They stopped obeying God.  Satan’s angels are called demons.  Demons are evil spirits that can live inside people.  They tell lies to people.  They do not want people to obey God.

Okay, ready for the story?  It’s called, “Jesus Prays Alone”.

The Lost Sheep

Today I’ve got three new words for you. 

The first is “sheep”.  Can you say “sheep”?  Good job!  A sheep is an animal with four legs.  It says, “baaaa!”  The hair of the sheep is called wool.  A small sheep is called a lamb.  The plural of sheep is sheep, not sheeps. 

The next word is “shoulder”.  Repeat after me: “shoulder”.  Very good.  Your shoulder is the part of your body that connects your arms to your body.  If you want to play baseball, you need strong shoulders.

I’ve got five new words to teach you today.  Ready?  Here we go! 

The first word is scold.  Not cold, scold.  To scold means to say words that are angry or critical of someone who is doing something bad.  Bill scolded his dog for eating his shoe.  Did your mother scold you for getting a D on your exam?

Next is belong to.  To belong to means to be owned by someone.  That car belongs to me.  I own the car.  It is mine.  Belong to can also mean to be a member or part of something.  She belongs to a gardening club. 

The next word is kingdom.  A kingdom is a country ruled by a king or queen.  The complete name of the country Saudi Arabia is “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”, because Saudi Arabia is ruled by a king.  The United States is not a kingdom, because we are ruled by a constitution. 

What Do You Care About?

Today I want to teach you two more words.

The first word is care.  To care means to love someone or something.  To care also means to be interested in something.  The man cared for his sick dog.  He loved his dog and gave it medicine and good food.  Mothers care for their children, even after their children are adults.  They worry about their children and pray for their children.  I don’t care whether you eat chicken or fish.  That means, you can eat either chicken or fish.  I am not concerned which meat you choose.

The second word is worm.  Can you say worm?  It rhymes with “firm” and “germ”.  A worm is a small, long, thin animal with no arms or legs.  It is like a snake, but smaller, and it has no bones.  It does not bite with poison like a snake.  People often put worms on a hook to catch fish.

Today I want to teach you just two words.  Both words start with “sh”!  Can you say “sh”? 

The first word is shade. Shade is the area of darkness made by something that is blocking the light.
The trees in my yard give shade to the house.  It’s hot, let’s sit in the shade. 

The other word is shelter.  Can you say “shelter”?  Good job!  A shelter is something that covers or protects people or animals from danger or bad weather.  A shelter can be something permanent like a house, or something temporary like a tent or even some branches from a tree.  Sometimes very poor people use a cardboard box for shelter.  Nests are shelters for birds.  Many small animals find shelter in holes in the ground.

Today I want to teach you only two words.  Both words start with “pre”!

The first word is prevent.  Can you say, “prevent”?  Good!  To prevent means to stop something from happening.  It means to stop someone from doing something.  Sarah prevented her son Billy from running into the street.  She did not allow him to run into the street.  The rain prevented the fire from growing.  The rain stopped the fire from growing bigger.

The other word is prefer.  To prefer means to like something better than other things.  I prefer vanilla ice cream.  That means I like vanilla ice cream better than other flavors of ice cream.  He prefers reading to watching TV.  He likes reading more than he likes watching TV.

Today I want to teach you four words.

The first word is throne.  Can you say it?  Throne.  Throne.  A throne is the special chair on which a king or queen sits. 
 
The next word is robe.  A robe is a piece of clothing worn on top of other clothes.  A robe is long and loose.  Some robes are worn in public to show that a person is important.  For example, judges wear robes when they are in the courtroom.  But other robes are worn by people relaxing in their homes.  We call these bathrobes.  Don’t wear a bathrobe when you go to the store!
