We have been lax in our scripture memory of late. We usually just sit around the table or living room and quote it in a sing song voice. Sometimes we have been known to clap or march as well, especially when the children were younger. In our busy household, I am always interested in new ways to teach our children scripture. When the opportunity to review “Scripture Talk – Making Bible Memory Fun through Hand Motions” DVD came across my email. I said yes.
Scripture Talk – Making Bible Memory Fun through Hand Motions
The DVD uses fun, active hand motions, creative teaching, and visual aids to help children memorize 79 verses of Scripture (from 10 passages) and also know how to apply the Scripture to their lives. We have seen dozens of children of all ages (2 years to 18 years) use this method, and get excited about memorizing large amounts of Scripture in a short amount of time!
Scripture Talk Review
Our children really like watching Scripture Talk. After a few days they were coming to me quoting scripture, or portions of scripture while doing the hand motions. Here is what each of our younger children had to say:
14 year old daughter, “I really like it. It was very encouraging. It helped me with memorizing. I like all the teachers.”
12 year old son, “It was encouraging.”
11 year old son, “I liked it. It was funny. I memorized a verse. My favorite teacher is Mr. Richard.”
8 year old daughter, “I love it. I memorized a verse. The bloopers were really funny. The teachers were awesome. My favorite teacher is Miss Kate.”
6 year old son, “I loved it. I really liked the bloopers.”
4 year old son, “I hate it.” He did grumble the most when it was time to watch it. But he also just said last night that he liked it. So he is being a flip-flop!
I liked that I could let them sit down and watch the DVD without having to worry about the content. It gave me some peace and quiet to get my work done, which is very helpful to this busy mama.
