We’ve been using this Bible Memory Box for over a decade now and it’s still the best system I’ve seen for systematically reviewing memory work. Let me give you a sneak peek and you can grab some FREE verse printables at the end of this post!
Here’s why this system is so great:
- open & go
- easy on mom
- easy to implement
- systematic repetition
- it really works!
What do you need to create your own? Simply, an index card box with dividers and index cards!
Then fill it with your memory work. It doesn’t have to only include Scripture verses. You could include parts of larger poems, or history facts, science definitions, or foreign language review. Put a few cards with grammar questions on them too.
I used to use this box regularly when my boys were all in the lower elementary grades. We did a sort of morning basket before morning baskets were trendy 🙂 and we included our memory box into that time each day.
I’ve gotten out of the habit of using this memory system since the boys are now teens, but since my daughter is coming along in those elementary years now, I decided to pull it out again for another look.
And that’s the beauty of homeschooling. The really useful tools and resources are worth a second look.
Want to download some FREE Scripture memory cards for your homeschool? We memorized I John 1:5-10 (ESV) using daily repetition and you can too! Sign up below to grab these from my members-only resource library.
It’s probably easiest for me to give a video tour of this Bible memory box, so here goes.
