We have always included memory verses in our Rotations with good results. The kids learn the verses and have fun doing memory verse activities.
Last week, however, a student asked "so why do we memorize verses" and got a lack luster response from the teacher. Discussing it as a staff we struggled with an answer that a 1st-6th grader would accept.
What do you say to kids and parents about the importance of memorizing some Bible verses?
