Get Behind the Easel: A Bible memory verse game by The Scripture Lady offers and fun and easy way for your kids to memorize scriptures.
Get Behind the Easel: A Bible memory verse game for kids will truly make learning a Bible verse loads of fun.
Bible memory verse games will help your children hide God’s Word in their hearts and for this one you will need to do the following:
Some kind of board on which to display your memory verse. I personally use a pocket chart. These can be easily found at your local teacher supply store or you can order them online at www.orientaltrading.com. I then write each word found in my verse on an index card including one card each for the book of the Bible and its reference number and I display the verse in its correct order on the chart. If you prefer, you could just write the verse on a chalkboard or dry erase board.
You will also need an easel on which your board sits. If you don’t have an easel, that’s all right, but a child must be able to stand behind the board. Therefore your board could not be attached to a wall.
Here’s How to Play Get Behind the Easel: A Bible memory verse game:
Tell your children that they are going to play “Get Behind the Easel”. Show them the memory verse you have picked for them to work on. Have them read it out loud several times to help them begin to memorize it. Once you feel they are starting to get a handle on the verse, have one child come up and stand behind the easel. Instruct another child to quietly come up and take off one of the words on the board and then have them give it to you.
On the word “GO”, the rest of the class is to say the verse nice and loud, but when they get to the word that was taken off, they are to clap and then continue saying the rest of the verse out loud. Once the verse has been read, the child behind the easel must guess what word was clapped on. If he gets it right, he could get some kind of treat or at least a hearty, “Way to go!” Replace the word that was taken off and play all over again.
In addition to introducing you to Get Behind the Easel, a Bible memory verse game for kids, I want to give you 2 well loved verses found in the Bible that your kids can learn quick and easily. They are 1 John 3:1 and Mark 12:30.
