Bible Memory Games: Part 1

Here are a couple of fun ways to teach Bible verses to your kids, or anything else you want them to memorize! 

  

Introducing a New Verse:

  1. Say the verse together one time.
  2. Ask them to tell you what the most important words in the verse are and underline them.
  3. Talk about any words they don’t understand.

Bible Memory Game: Sound Effects               

Items needed:  White board and marker

  1. Write the Scripture verse on the board. 
  2. When the verse is read, you emphasize every punctuation mark in a funny way.  For instance, quotation marks are a double click with the tongue, commas are a snap, periods are a clap, semi colons are 2 snaps, and exclamation marks are a stomp of the foot.  This is a lot of fun!  Try to do it fast
