15 Scripture Memory Tips

Scripture Memory //

  1. Create pictures to represent the words of the verse.
  2. Put the verse to music.
  3. Give the verse a title: The Good News Verse, The Heaven Verse: The Beginning Verse …
  4. Use your camera phone to video your child saying the verse.
  5. Write out the verse. Cut into pieces (a word to each piece) and have the child put the pieces back together.
  6. Give each clubber a different word of the Scripture (on a piece of paper) and have them get into order. You could do this with teams and see which team can get into order the quickest.
  7. Give each clubber a card with each day of the week marked on the card. Each day that the clubber studies his/her verses for 10 minutes or more, the parent signs the card. Completed cards (at the next club meeting) earn a prize or extra points.
  8. Write out (or enter into the computer) the verses every day for a week.
  9. Say the verse and skip a word – clubbers must tell you which word is missing.
  10. Make dry-erase boards (old frames with glass work well). Clubbers can make the background picture and use the front of the glass as a dry-erase board.
  11. Encourage the clubbers to enter their verses on their phones and look at them once an hour or at 4:00 or when a train goes through town or a plane flies overhead.
  12. Read the verse, emphasizing different words. This works especially with younger children – they will actually memorize your tone of voice and your word emphasis which makes it easier for them to memorize.
  13. Assign a different word to each clubber. Go around the room with each clubber saying her word. Do it faster and faster. Change starting points so clubbers have different words.
  14. Sit in a circle. Throw a bean bag to a clubber who says the first word of the verse and then throws it to someone else who says the second word, etc.
  15. Challenge a clubber to teach the verse to an adult.

About the Author

Life is about my love for the Lord and teaching kids about His Word; about serving at Awana (20 years); about collecting counties (every county we visit is marked on a giant map) and grandkids (6) --- and writing about it all. My latest book is How to Raise a Modern-Day Joseph (David C. Cook).
