Activity: Children write the Bible verse on Post It notes, putting one word on each note. Two or three sheets of construction paper are then taped together the long way, depending on the length of the verse. The children put the notes in the correct order on the paper. Then they choose to remove any word they want and say the verse. They continue until the verse has totally disappeared -- like magic! Encourage the children to take the activity home and use with their parents and siblings.
Use a variety of teaching and learning methods such as singing, saying in different voices, emphasizing a specific word, saying in rhythm, using picture cards, making up motions and using simple rhythm patterns of claps, taps or stomps.
