Part of what I want my blog to be is a great resource for teaching your kids about the Bible, and to show what has been working for me with my kids for family discipleship and in my Sunday School class.
Right now my Sunday School class of 3rd and 4th graders are working on memorizing 100 verses together as a group. There’s a set of 12 verses that they are working on. To help them practice I’ve made memory verse puzzles for them to put together.
It’s really simple to make, I print out the memory verse puzzles on cardstock, then take them down to Mardel and laminate the cut out pieces. I also laminate a manila envelope for them to go in.
Then I cut it all out of the laminating and stick velcro on the back of the verses and on the envelope.
Sunday morning they put the puzzles together, and earn an M&M or Skittles, one, as in singular, for putting it together. We spend about 15-20 minutes doing this every Sunday during the summer. The kids love it, and they can rack up quite the candy stash between putting together puzzles and saying the verses (they get 2 pieces of candy for saying the verses).
I’m going through quite a lot of candy right now. And I’m just fine with that.
If you’d like your own copy of the memory verse puzzles, just click on the picture below. It’s 12 verses we decided are helpful for encouragement, are good for presenting the gospel, and a reminder of how loved you are, and you are here for a purpose.*
*It was very hard to narrow it down to 12, we actually had planned to only have 10 as the challenge, but we couldn’t narrow it down to 10. There was still a lot of arguments on if this was the right ones.**
**I meant to publish this about 12 hours ago, but forgot to finish it, so HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! And, next week I will be getting back to Moses………
