Learning Scripture Through Music ~ Teaching God’s Word

Learning Scripture Through Music

This post is a part of my 10 Day of Teaching God’s Word series

One of the most effective ways we’ve found in helping our kids learn Scripture and have it ‘stick’ has been through music. A few years ago our family was introduced to Seeds Family Worship and the results have been wonderful. When I tell you that songs from one of the albums are playing daily in our home, I am not joking. Each member of our family enjoys the music, and I love knowing that as we listen, our kids are firmly planting God’s words in their hearts!

Take a quick listen to one of our favorite songs “Do Not Be Anxious” from Philippians 4: 6-7 {feed subscribers can watch the video here}.

 

Music also gives us the opportunity to get up and move around. Several of our kids get so much more out of learning when they are physically doing something. We might add in some silly hand motions or act out a song, but it all helps in remembering the words to the verses!

Hearing God’s word played in the background each day and  my kids humming Scripture and singing the word of God as they are in various places around the house just makes me happy. A few weeks ago it literally made me cry sitting downstairs and listening to the boys sing up in their rooms ~ repeating verses and knowing the words will be in their hearts for years to come.

ABC Bible Verse Flashcard Printables ~ Teaching God’s Word

It’s not only the preschoolers in this house that enjoy having printables, and although these were put together for our youngest, everyone is working on memorizing a verse for each letter of the alphabet. I remember learning ABC Bible verses a long {long} time ago ~ and they have stuck in my brain for so many years, so I KNOW that it is a fabulous way to learn and I put together some FREE ABC Bible Verse printables especially for my email subscribers – yay!!

For the most part, we use the NIV version of the Bible in our home {although I have several different versions I read from}. Because the NIV has been easier for our kids to memorize and understand, all but one of the verses in the ABC Bible Verse Printables use the NIV. Our family enjoys the music from Seeds Family Worship and many of the verse cards are from songs that you can find on the albums that Seeds has available. A friend and I sat down together and focused on a few other verses that we wanted out kids to learn and we now have a full set of scripture verses for every letter of the alphabet!!

ABC Bible Verse Flashcards

 

The ABC Bible verse flashcards each print off at 2” x 3”, about the size of a deck of cards. We printed our cards off onto cardstock, laminated them to make them more sturdy, hole-punched them and then put them on a jump ring. {Note: This is how we laminate more inexpensively}.

Using the ABC Bible Verse Flashcards

When we are working on verses together, there is a lot of repetition. If we are introducing a new verse I will repeat it a few times for the kids and then we break it up into bite-sized segments to learn. We practice the verse several times throughout the day to get it in our heads and if it’s one of the Seeds Family Worship songs ~ we are sure to play the song to learn it as well. We continue repeating the verse daily until the kids can recite it on their own with little to no prompting. Depending on how your child learns, you can hang up only one verse at a time and add new verses to the ring when one is memorized. With the ABC Bible Verse Flashcards it is great to review the ones that have already been learned together.

And ~ in case your family has a few additional verses to add to the mix, there are colored blank cards that you can type into if you would like to create additional verse cards for your child. The area where the verse is typed is editable, since it is a common font {Century Gothic}. Have your child write the letter of the alphabet in the top area to personalize it! {Please note: I cannot change the verses to KJV because the letters will not match with the verses. You can use the blank page of cards to create your own personalized set.} Hope you all will enjoy the ABC Bible Verse Flashcards. I have some more fun printables coming for you this week and next as well as additional resources for teaching God’s word to kids ~ so stay tuned!
