Bible - follow Penny Gardner's Bible story list at http://www.pennygardner.com/bible.html and read a Bible story for fifteen to twenty minutes each day. Ask one child in your group to narrate at the end of the reading. site?
Memory work: We suggest you simply read a memory verse aloud to the children, asking them to say it back to you. Another way to memorize verses is to write a verse on a blackboard or whiteboard and erase a single word, then try to say the verse aloud together. Then erase another word and again try to repeat the verse together, and so on. This method may also be used to memorize short poems. We suggest no more than one verse a week for younger children, perhaps even one verse every two weeks. Older children might work on an entire passage at a time. For them we suggest Psalms 1; Psalms 23; and 1 Corinthians 13. If you do not have access to a Bible, try this site: http://blueletterbible.org/ Younger children might work on these verses over the course of three to five months:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.
