Topical Memory System for Kids
Help your children memorize scripture with the Topical Memory System. This book contains thirty-six verses in both the NIV and MSG versions. Each verse is printed on perforated cardstock paper, with the other side including the topic and scripture reference. Play a game by picking up two random cards face down and reading the scripture. If they are a match, you can keep the cards. If the cards don’t match, the player turns the cards back over and it’s the next player’s turn. The game ends when all cards have been matched. You can also play different variations of the game. Each week there is a two-page study focusing on two of the verses. Discussion questions and reading the verses in context with other scripture are included in the study. Improve your retention and knowledge of the Bible through this helpful method.
The Topical Memory System has been helping people memorize Scripture for decades, and it will help you and your kids too! The tried-and-true methods of the TMS are the foundation of this fun game.
Inside you’ll find tear-out memory verse cards (with colorful illustrations) for use in multiple games. Complementing the games is a devotional-style guide for families that helps with understanding the context of each verse in the larger picture of God’s story. There are also discussion questions that provide opportunities to go deeper in Scripture with every verse. Kids will have fun playing the memory games as their faith and understanding of God’s Word grows.
Families can follow the 18-week schedule provided or go at their own pace. Start with the beginner-level matching game and move up to the advanced levels when the kids are ready. With 36 verses to shuffle through, every game is a new challenge!
Also included is a checklist to track memorization progress and a kid-friendly glossary for difficult Bible terms. The cards are in two translations: NIV and The Message.
