Reply to "Scripture Memory Games"

When I taught S.S. and had a table, I used a number of memory verse games.

(1) I always like the tried-and-true memory verse scramble, where you put one or more words of the verse on each card and turn them over. You can make one or two sets, depending upon how big your class is.

2) Another card game, Memory Verse Match-Up, is where you print the verse on four cards (1/4th of the verse on each card). You make many sets like this and turn them over. It's like memory, only for older kids (grades 4-6). The idea is to get a complete set of 4 cards, or to get the most sets of 4 cards.

(3) Verse Catch: I also take a ball, a bean bag, or a frisbee, say one word of a verse and throw the item to a child. That child says the next word and throws it to someone else. Repeat the process until everyone knows the verse.

(4) Fill-in-the-blank: Sometimes I write blanks on the whiteboard, a blank for each letter of each word in the verse. The kids form teams and take turns guessing letters.
