Limited time Christmas Bible game Freebie
In keeping with my unofficial theme this month, keeping Christ at the center of Christmas, I’m sharing something to help you do just that! I’ve made a Christmas Bible Game and I’m offering it as a limited time subscriber freebie this week. It’s a verse memorization game using verses from the nativity story. There are also coloring pages, pictures, and verse cards.
Previously, in Applied Behavioral Analysis, my son needed to memorize some characters in a story. Each character’s name and characteristics were meant to help he and I identify what was going on with him in the moment, in a way we both understood. He and his ABA provider memorized all these things through scavenger hunts. For each character, he found he had to name them. Then, in subsequent rounds, he would have to name what their struggle was, and finally, they got down to recalling coping strategies. It was brilliant! He learned so much, so fast! I thought this was a perfect method to apply to scripture memorization.
By the way, If you’re stopping over from They Call Me Blessed, welcome!

How does it work?
You print and cut out the Bible verse pieces (see image above), and I would personally laminate them for durability. Then, you hide them throughout the house (or a single room for simplicity’s sake if that’s better suited to your situation) like a little scavenger hunt.

Actually, first, they would read through the task cards a few times to kind of get the hang of it. Additionally, they can use the coloring pages and other printables in the pack for familiarization.
Go ahead and hide them throughout the house. Then, the kids get to have fun searching for the versus then they assemble them.
If you want to test their confidence in it or reinforce learning, you can have them write it out or recite it, but practicing with this game method really takes the pressure off.
Why try verse memorization this way?
Well, obviously it’s going to be fun because it’s a kind of like a round of hide and seek. However, the other thing is it’s also if you can kinesthetic way to learn. A lot of times adding movement makes learning much easier!
It’s a great way to memorize for kids who don’t like writing work. Not to mention it’s also somewhat visual for visual learners. I hope your family enjoys this limited time freebie; make sure you download your copy while it’s still available! After 12/14/2017 it’ll still be available in the store, but only for purchase.
