Parents ~ In 1st - 6th grade we are on a mission to memorize scripture. I added the scriptures we are working on memorizing so far and will update with the new ones as we add them. We will be challenging them to be able to tell us these verses more than once as we truly want to have them hidden in our hearts. For every 10 verses they memorize they can earn a prize.
