OTHER MEMORY TECHNIQUES provided by various users (names noted)....


Divide a memory verse into 3 or more short phrases and divide the kids into the same number of groups. Tell them they're going to make it sound like an echo with each group saying its phrase a little softer than the first. Do it several times and change parts each time.
(Group 1) [And Jesus said] (Group 2) I am with you always,(Group 3) to the end of the age. This came from a book of memorization ideas called "Hiding God's Word," but I don't have it here and can't remember the author.

Another variation is "artistic signing" -- using American sign language for the key words. "The Joy of Signing" by Lottie Riekehof is the resource we use. Signing all the words is too much and very distracting. However, just signing the key words involves the body in the memory work.

Take an old puzzle, assemble, and glue a new puzzle image to it using quick setting spray glue. Recut the pieces.

You can also BUY blank puzzles from various teaching supplies sites. Kids assemble, turn into a memory verse, then take home.
