Bible Memory is one of the most important aspects to a child’s spiritual growth and education. Memorizing scripture places the Word of God into the hearts and minds of children. While learning the exact words and verse is important, so too is the understanding of the meaning and intention behind each and every scripture you commit to memory. The verses we’ve chosen for our products here at BM4K are intended to be the starting off point for authentic conversations with your children each week. Use them as a launching pad to help facilitate and nurture a deeper relationship with our heavenly father.
“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…” Deuteronomy 6:6-9 (KJV)
Full Color Scripture Memory Chart
These engaging charts are perfect for introducing the verse to your children. Each verse includes a corresponding image to aid in scripture memorization. As children progress through the program you can over the bottom text and provide them with a visual reference to cue memory recall. Charts can be hung in the classroom or stored in page protectors in a three-ring binder. Each morning revisit the verse and build upon the previous day’s memory accomplishments. Some sets, The Creation and 10 Commandments for example, include KJV Scripture Charts along with Summarized versions for younger students (as shown in the photo above.) This way your older students can memorize the KJV verses and your younger students can study and learn foundational biblical principals. If a set includes the younger version it will be listed on the product description.
Scripture Verse Coloring Page
These coloring pages are another great way to build visual recall skills. Children color the corresponding visual and practice handwriting skills by writing the verse below. Additionally, the coloring pages are essentially a Black and White version of our Scripture charts, so if you’d rather not print the verse charts in color you can print these instead.
Scripture Stickers or Flashcards
Children of all ages love stickers! Print our Bible verse sticker sheets on Avery Sticker Sheets #6874 and use them to encourage children to memorize their verse. In a church setting these are excellent ways to send verses home with child. At home stickers can be giving as rewards for completing a verse or stuck onto a progress chart. Print additional pages on cardstock paper to create flashcard size memory tools. These 3×4” flashcards could be used inside a memory file box, photo album or a key ring of verses.
When using our product in a family or homeschool setting we recommend printing out the provided journal pages. We provide you with three different levels which can be reproduced as needed to complete the program. Each level provides children with four small daily tasks to complete. It is recommended that children complete these tasks Monday-Thursday, and save Friday as a day of review for all previous verses learned.
Level 1: This level is recommended for our youngest students, those that cannot yet read or write independently. Suggested age range is 3-5 years old.
Level 2: This level is designed for children who are able to read and copy written words, but may tire from writing out the entire verse each day. Instead they are asked to write smaller bits of information each day. Suggested age range is 5-8 years old.
Level 3: This level is designed for older children who are able to write out the entire verse each day for practice. Self-reflection is provided on the final day for children to apply the verse to their daily lives.
