Bible and Memory Work

WHAT WE ARE READING:
Narrated Bible in Chronological Order - The Book of Joshua
* Sometimes, I would get voluntary narrations from these readings. See Bible Narrations for samples.

FROM THE KING JAMES:
Proverbs - from the chapter that corresponds to today's date
Psalms -
* Don't hesitate to read the King James Bible to young children. If they are to enjoy great literary works like Shakespeare later on, they need to be acquainted with the beautiful language of the King James first!

RECENT MEMORY WORKS:
The Ten Commandments, Joshua 1:5-9, Books of the OT

MORE TO MEMORIZE:
Psalm 91, The Beatitutes, 1 Cor.13, Books of the NT

why such long verses?

We used to do one memory verse per week. For some reasons, I didn't have peace about it, so prayed I.
Memorizing big chunks of scriptures engages us much better than working on one random verse at a time. And by doing this, we are literally hiding God's Word in our hearts. Our children are capable of so much memory work when they're young. Why not use that God given gift to grow in His Word? What good would it do our children when they acquire all kinds of knowledge and wisdom, but not be versed with the living Word of God?
Btw, I do the memorizing with dd, too.
