Scripture memory…it’s something Christian homeschoolers know is important, but something most people find challenging to do! There is no better time to focus on memorizing scripture than when children are young, due to their incredible capacity for memorization. A new website, Plant the Word, offers scripture memory resources for children which can help homeschoolers in their efforts to instill scripture into childrens’ hearts. Developed by a Christian mother of two young boys, Plant the Word seeks to “spread the WORD of God in the hearts and minds of God’s children through scripture visualization, memorization and application”.
For just $5, parents can purchase a set of 10 scripture memory cards. The cards are about the size of a credit card and are made of durable PVC material. Each card boasts colorful graphics, to help facilitate memorization. Plant the Word currently offers two different sets of cards, which come in a plastic case. Plant the Word also offers the scripture cards in magnet form, which can be posted on the refrigerator or other location as a constant reminder of the “verse for the day”. Other magnets include 1 Corinthians 13 and the 10 commandments. The site plans to include additional scripture card sets, as well as additional products in the future.
There are so many ways homeschoolers can incorporate these cards into the school day – reviewing a card at each meal, pulling out the cards at family devotional time, or even keeping them in the car and reciting scripture on the way to extracurricular activities. Be sure to check out this fun way to make scripture memorization a central part of your homeschool!
