Sorry it took so long to answer this Bremen,

Pete

For Grades 1-4

The sun with loving light
Makes bright for me each day,
The soul with spirit power
Gives strenght unto my limbs,
In sunlight shining clear
I revere, Oh God,
The strength of humankind,
Which Thou so graciously
Has planted in my soul,
That I with all my might,
May love to work and learn.
From thee stream light and strength
To the rise love and thanks.

-Rudolf Steiner-

For Grades 5-12

I look out into the world
Wherein there shines the Sun
Where glimmer all the stars,
Where lie the silent stones
The plants that live and grow
The beasts that feel and move
Where man in soul creates
A dwelling for the spirit.
I look inward to the soul
That lives within my being
The spirit of God is weaving
In sunlight and in soul-life
In heights of world without
In depths of soul within.
Spirit of God to thee
I turn myself in seeking
That strength and grace and skill
For learning and for work
May live and grow in me.

-Rudolf Steiner -

thanks Pete, good resource.
dd is 3, we use the one from "You are Your Child's First Teacher"

Good Morning Earth
Good Morning Sun
Good Morning stones and flowers everyone
Good Morning Bees and the Birds in the trees
Good Morning to you, Good morning to me

i like it becuase it's like the one my mom used to say to me when I was little.
