Illustrating Bible Verses ~ Teaching God’s Word

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!
