Praise the child for whatever response he or she makes. Some children may not be ready yet to try memorising in class. Spend one month on one verse.
Reading from the Bible
The child 'helps' an adult read the verse from the Bible, exaggerating emphasis on key words.
The child echoes each phrase right after the adult says it.
Bible verse songs
Sing the song often in class until the children pick it up. The music aids memorisation.
Make up actions to sing with the song and the children will enjoy the verse more, learning it sooner.
Use hand motions and full body actions when saying and learning a verse. The physical action will help to reinforce the learning as the body uses more than one area of the brain.
