Memorizing the books of the Bible

 I try to do memory work for the boys each week. Some memory work takes us about a week to master and some takes weeks if not months. Learning where all the 50 states were took us a very long time. Learning the books of the Bible in order has not been so hard.
 
I wrote all the books down on popsicle sticks and mixed them up in sandwich bags. I first asked the boys how many books of the Bible they could put in order. James could do none and Terrance could do only 4-see picture below
 Then we began listening to songs off youtube and very quickly they were able to put lots of the books in order.


Today when James did the activity he was able to put the entire New Testament in order. Wow!
Here are the songs we used off youtube.
