First we read the passage and then we decide what motions to put with the verse. We then just repeat the verse with the motions until they get it. After they have one down I add another one and we always start with the last verse they memorized and then move onto a new one. We are working on Psalm 1 right now. My daughter has so graciously decided to be our model.
Blessed is the man
|We lift our hands to the sky|
Who walks not
|Two fingers walking on our hand|
In the counsel
|She says "castle" instead of counsel|
Of the ungodly
|We shake our finger when we say "ungodly"|
Nor stands in the path of sinners
|We stand tall|
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful
|We crouch down|
|Then we put our hands by our mouth and whisper the reference|
How do you have your kids memorize Scripture or how do you memorize it?
