Parent tip on November’s memory prayer

November 1, 2016

The Memory Prayer for November is the Prayer for the Dead (“Eternal rest grant unto them … ) and with one simple habit, I guarantee your kids will have it memorized for their December class time (and for life!).  Simply do this activity from your Feast of All Souls lesson, keep it posted in your house and make it a part of your daily family prayer for the month.  Not only will you be praying for all your loved ones, but you all will learn this prayer without any extra effort at all.

Memorizing for March

March 9, 2016

dictionaryIf you have a 4-6th grader, this month’s memory verse is Luke 6:13-16 – the list of the Apostles.

Before working on any memory verse, I always think it’s a great idea to go through the vocabulary to make sure your kids understand what all the words mean.  In this one, you may want to start by talking about the difference between a disciple and an apostle.  Zealot and traitor also come up as possibilities for clarification.

  • Disciple: Any student or follower of a particular teacher (obviously referring to Jesus in this context).  All baptized Christians are disciples of Christ.
  • Apostle: In the New Testament, the term most specifically refers to one of the 12 men chosen by Jesus as His immediate followers.
  • Zealot: A member of an ancient Jewish group who resisted Roman rule.
  • Traitor: A person who betrays a friend.

Next, I’d recommend cutting apart your memory verse sheet and turn it into 14 flash cards, leaving the print part in the middle intact for reference.   From there, work with your kids to help them get the apostles in the right order.  Manipulating the cards will add a layer to the experience that will make it easy for your kinesthenic learners to memorize the verse.
