I know I have posted about this before....but, I wanted to give you a PROGRESS UPDATE!!
Click on this link to see the previous post Memorizing The BOOKS OF THE BIBLE using MILK CAPS!!
I am THRILLED with the KIDDOS progress in Memorizing the BOOKS of THE BIBLE!!! They are all doing sooo well. It AMAZES me when I see them get so excited to "EARN" their NEXT Milk Cap. Proves to me that SIMPLE things are meaningful!
This is our PROCEDURE. The KIDDOS pick up their MILK CAPS from the TABLE after they put their ATTENDANCE STICKER (BUGS) onto their Attendance Chart.
Once all of the KIDDOS have their CAPS in the correct order we say the BOOKS as a CLASS. We point to each BOOK as we say its name.
Then we "figure" out what the next Book of The Bible is....some of my older KIDDOS are really good helpers with this procedure. Then I pass out the NEWEST Milk Cap to the KIDDOS. They place it where it belongs. We then SAY the Books together AGAIN. (If I have time---I will have the KIDDOS say them individually.)
Then we say them ONE MORE TIME...But, this time we are placing the caps into our MILK CAP CONTAINER!!
Currently, the KIDDOS have the 5 Books of Law, the 12 Books of History, and the 5 Books of Poetry Memorized.
Each MILK CAP set is unique in COLOR. However, I do make sure that each "Division" is in a new color cap for each KIDDO.
All the CAPS are ready!!! The KIDDOS earn a CAP a week. But, to earn the cap they have to be able to say the books up to the last CAP received.
I LOVE how excited the KIDDOS are about earning their next MILK CAP.
I Love that the members of the Congregation are so willing to save and donate their CAPS.
I Love that the Similac Containers were donated by one of our young families.
I Love how something so inexpensive can be so exciting to the KIDDOS. They are WORKING so hard to get the Books of The Bible Memorized!!!
Hope this excites you to do something SIMPLE and YET EFFECTIVE for your KIDDOS. Milk Caps have so many possibilities. Apostles, 10 Commandments, Be-attitudes, Attributes of Love 1 Cor. 13., Fruit of The Spirit, Armor of GOD, Sons of Jacob, etc.
