This morning I taught 1st-3rd grade Sunday School. I’ve subbed in this class several times before, but this morning I decided to do something a little different. After doing our “bible study lesson” and talking about the “rich, young ruler” we concentrated on memorizing Deuteronomy 5:32. I had 3 different “stations” for them to rotate through (during last 30-40 minutes).
Just thought I’d write it down, so other people could see it.

Cup Tower, Bible Verse strips, and D-E-U-T-E-R-O-N-O-M-Y cards
(Although it is upside down, it worked)!!
Building the Memory Verse with Legos
This was probably my favorite activity, but the kids got frustrated b/c they couldn’t “find” the Lego they were looking for….but, of course, that has to do with being 7-9 years old and not “trying” 😉
I wrote the entire verse (1-2 words per Lego), mixed them up in a big pile, and then they had to “stack” them in order to make the Bible Verse.
I had 4 sets of the Bible Verse, so each kid had their own set to work on: single Lego, double Lego, square Legos, and the 3 and 4 Lego were all different sets!
Even though we ran out of time, what you can do is “take away” a Lego and they have to tell you what word they are missing in their Lego tower!
(You can reuse the Legos and put 4 different memory verses on them–because there are 4 sides of the Lego–, but it would probably get a little confusing if you had little ones)!
And, I didn’t really RUIN the Legos, other than writing on them, so you can easily still play with them!
You can also do it with Books of the Bible or really anything that you want to learn that has an “order”
