October’s Memory Verse

Toddlers-4th Grade: 1 Corinthians 10:31, Seeds of Purpose Track 8 – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

5th-8th Grade: OT Books of the Bible (Poetry & Major Prophets) – Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel

Some memorizing tips:

  • Practice the verse at home and sing the Seeds of Purpose songs to help children really master them. Childhood is when our capacity for memorization is optimum so it’s never too early to start this rich discipline.
  • Display the memory verse prominently in your home to remember to practice (pick up a copy at your child’s DIG classroom).
  • For toddlers and preschoolers, start with 1 verse, and for older students try all the verses.
  • For middle schoolers, use entertaining songs by performers like Slugs & Bugs to learn the Books of the Bible. Songs are available for free on YouTube.

Toddlers: Noah

  • Using toy animals and figurines, act out the story of Noah, using a box as a pretend ark.
  • Talk about rainbows. Share some beautiful pictures of them like these. Thank God for this reminder of His mercy and faithfulness to us.

Preschool: Noah

Preschoolers will spend the next 2 months looking at stories from the Old Testament that display the arc of God’s redemptive story, with this week’s focus on the story of Noah.

  • I wonder why other people didn’t believe that a flood was really coming?
  • I wonder what it was like inside the ark?
  • I wonder how Noah and his family felt when they got out of the ark?
