|Just for fun|
Back a few months ago, I came across a printable list of verses for children to memorize. I loved the layout! There was one verse for every letter of the alphabet and a checkbox to complete after the verse was memorized. I printed a sheet for Dasia and one for Dylan and hung the lists on our closet door above our chore charts. I thought others might be interested in using it for their children. You can print the list here.
My goal is to learn a different verse every week. However, sometimes the verses are long and we work on them for a longer time period. And, sometimes I forget and we do not practice the verse enough during the week. We are currently on letter H and the kids are doing great! Each night after we read our Bible story and another book or two, I say the verse and have each child repeat it. During Sunday School, I ask both of them to tell me their Bible verse. I usually have to prompt them with the first couple of words. If they get it mostly correct, they get to pick a prize out of our prize box. Our prize box consists of $1 items that I let them choose from Wal-Mart and Target.
Periodically, we recite the previous verses we memorized to keep them fresh in our minds. Notice I said "our". This has been not only a great way for the kids to learn scripture, but for me too!
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalms 119:11
