Monday begins our 20th year of home schooling. I have a 15 year old, a 10 year old and an 8 year old still at home. This year I wanted to work on some Bible memory work with the two younger boys. I decided we would memorize passages from the gospel of John where Jesus states that “I am…” The method I’m using is similar to what I have used in Bible class but at home we get the added bonus of working a little everyday. Each day we will read the entire passage together and then they will:
- Read the entire passage on Monday
- Copy a portion of the passage on Tuesday.
- Illustrate that part on Wednesday.
- Either write the portion for the week by memory or copy it again on Thursday
- Recite what we’ve learned so far on Friday.
There are boxes to either put a check mark or a sticker when a task is completed. Each page is intended to last one week. The title page will go in the front pocket of a 3 ring binder until that entire passage is memorized. Then it will go in the binder in front of the pages used to memorize that passage. The final page is a special challenge. The boys will be encouraged to write the entire passage by memory.
So far I have completed the 1st three “I am…” passages that we’ll be doing. Click on the links below to print out a pdf so your child can work on it as well.
I Am The Light — 2 weeks
I Am The Resurrection — 4 weeks
I Am The Way, The Truth, The Life — 6 weeks
Since these will take about 12 weeks to complete, I have a little while to work on the others. I plan on doing:
- I Am The Good Shepherd
- I Am The Door
- I Am The Vine
- I Am The Bread
