Bible Verse Memory Activity

by Jen
(Penfield, ny USA)

If I need a quick activity I write an Bible verse that matches my lesson on a chart for the kids to copy onto paper. Light colored construction paper works best, but any paper will do. After copying we read together (young ele. kids) a few times and discuss the meaning of the verse. Then we keep practicing to memorize the verse. We look it up in the Bible.

Then the kids draw and illustrate a picture to show the meaning of the verse. It can be from their own lives, or from the bible. Color the pictures and take time to share them with the class. This can take a whole class time.

I even make a picture to save for future lessons. If you save these each child can staple their pages from the year into a Bible Verse Memory book.

Isn't it amazing?
by: Pauli (editor)

Thank you, Jen, for inspiring us with this beautifully simple, yet well structured, last minute lesson activity. I plan to include it in any 'emergency lesson kit' I ever prepare for last minute substitute teachers.

Isn't it amazing how we can complicate things that could be so simple!
