Illustrate a verse printable

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

My mind works well with pictures. I can visualize things and remember easily when there are pictures involved. Every single time I pass a field that has cows grazing in it, the following verses comes to mind from Psalm 50: 10-11…

for every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills.
I know every bird in the mountains,
and the insects in the fields are mine.

Several of our kids operate the same way when learning and whenever possible, I try to include drawing or coloring in our lessons. Drawing pictures may seem like a super-simple way to  work on teaching God’s word and you are right!  Adding the ‘picture’ element to your Bible memory can be a huge help for children that are visual learners {I know it is for me!!}.

I put together this simple printable to share with you all. There are two pages in the printable, one with dotted lines for younger children and one for older children.

Have your child draw a picture to represent the verse that is being memorized and copy the verse onto the lines below. Each time s/he recites the verse to you during the week, put a check mark in one of the boxes.

That’s it ~ super simple! Try using it with your children and let me know how it works for you all too!

  1. Jolanthe, I am just loving this series!  My girls have been working diligently on the ABC verses and I also printed some off to send to our English speaking Compassion kids.  

    Thank you for sharing these with us!

    Your blog reminds me of the days I was teaching preschool, it was so much fun and exciting to see my 4 yr old class, reciting a bible verse and song a related song. 

    This is a lovely series.

  3. Thanks for the printable. Love it! I’m sharing it on my FB page. 

  4. I love this!  My kids are too young to write still, but I can write out the verse and have them illustrate it!  Thanks for sharing this!

  5. I love this. Thank you for sharing.  I have been wanting to make this but just did not have the time especially with my little one sick.  Love the little boxes for checking!  You are a blessing!

  6. This is fantastic! Thank you.

    Thanks so much for this! I’m just getting back to teaching Sunday School after having my 2nd baby. I love having extra sheets like this for the students to practice their monthly memory verse. Thanks again!

  9. Oh wow — I LOVE THIS!!!    I’ve been looking for a resource like this.  Thank you!

  10. what happened to the AWANA sparks printables?? they were a great help both in my homeschool and as I directed the awana program at our church, and I cant find them now

  11. Oh! This is great! We have them write the verse on flash cards, but a picture on the back I know would help at least on of them!

  12. Jolanthe…. I was going to print a verse for my daughter and the words don’t show up, just the picture you put on the card. I tried a few of them {like Acts 16:31, 1 Cor. 15:3…}. Do I need to do something to get it to work on my end?
