I love using music/songs as a memorization tool and Bible memory is no different! This year as a school, we are working on memorizing Psalm 119:1-72, using the songs from this website: http://www.pursuinglife.com/scripture-songs.php. We are doing the first 9 tracks, approximately 1 a month, with the possibility of doing the rest another year.
It is amazing how quickly the students are learning these songs and along with it, the Scriptures! We have hopes that this will help the verses “stick” rather than being “memorized” and promptly forgotten. I have my class practice the month’s verses both by singing it and by saying/chanting it together so that they are ready to say it at the end of the month. This also helps the student or 2 who are not as musically inclined. I also make sure to have a visual reference for the students (for me that is a transparency), especially when we are first learning it.
