Memory Verse Monday

Write verse on chalkboard or poster board. Choose two volunteers. Have first volunteer face the class so that he cannot see the board. Have second volunteer choose one word. When quoting the verse, everyone claps in place of the chosen word. First volunteer must guess the word without looking at the verse.

Memory Verse Monday

To review a familiar verse, divide board into several sections. Have children race to see who can be the first to write the verse correctly. For a larger group, make teams and have a relay race. Each person writes one word and then passes the chalk until entire verse is written.

Is Reading to a Child Important?

The time that parents spend reading to a child will greatly affect a child’s desire to read. An important factor in whether a child learns to read or not – and how well he will ever read – is his desire. Parents build in children a desire for reading by reading to them at a young age. A child will learn to associate reading with pleasure and love.

The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read.

Thoughtful Tuesday

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

Memory Verse Monday

Looking for new ways to creatively teach memory verses? I am hoping to share with you a new idea each week (or almost every week).

This month I decided to focus on chalkboard methods. Many of you have probably already used this first method, but just in case, I though I would share. 

Write verse on chalkboard or whiteboard and allow kids to erase one word or phrase at a time.

I'm Back

Dearest Readers of my sadly neglected blog,

I apologize for my long absence here on this blog. I have had a number of things going on in my life and just needed to take a break for awhile. I have some new ideas, so hopefully I will be able to carry them out on here. Any suggestions for topics would be appreciated.

I returned early this morning from the Loving and Leading Conference in Milford, OH. I highly recommend this conference. There were many different workshops to choose from to learn lots of new ideas to incorporated into your ministry. Dr. David Gibbs, JR was the speaker for the main sessions. He brought a number of very convicting messages. Now to just put into practice what I have learned.
