It's always amazed me that I can remember nursery rhymes and songs that I learned when I was only three or four years old. Preschoolers are such sponges for rhymes and songs and sayings.
So one day, I thought, Why not get God's Word into my son's head instead of some meaningless rhyme about a cow jumping over the moon?
I was pondering how to do this when I came across the idea for a memorization box. A memorization box is a little box full of index cards with memory verses on them. You use it to recite and review verses.
This is a method I learned from Kimberly at Raising Olives. Ezekiel and I recite our verses each morning after breakfast. It takes about five minutes and I am in awe of all the Scriptures that he already knows by heart.
In the box, we have dividers labeled Daily, Odd Days, Even Days, Monday-Friday, Weeks 1-4, and Days 1-30 of the Month.
For example, we just recite a passage once or twice each day, and when it's memorized, we move it from Daily to Odd Days. When we can say it pretty well every odd day, we move it into the Tuesday slot, etc... until we are only reviewing it once a month.
If you want to memorize God's Word with your kids, a memorization box is a very helpful tool! Each day you recite 3-4 passages. You are constantly learning new verses, and constantly reviewing old ones.
