I’m going to use the Rhetoric level cards and memorize on the same schedule as my boys. One week down, thirty-one weeks of the New Testament to go!
I want to share with you how to help your kids memorize Bible verses with Bible Road Trip™ Bible Memory Verse Cards. I’ll share how a little about the different sets, how you can print, cut, and store your cards, and how you can use them in your day. There’s a video available below, and I go into more depth here in the post…..

Memorize Bible Verses with Bible Road Trip™
I have so much I want to tell you about memorizing Bible verses with your children that I had to cut about 10 minutes out of this video just to get rid of all the memorization rabbit trails I threw in there. Check out the video–you’ll pick up some good information–and then we’ll get down to some practical details.
Bible Verses at Five Different Levels
The five levels of Bible Road Trip™ are:
- Preschool and Kindergarten (ages 3-5)
- Lower Grammar (grades 1-3)
- Upper Grammar (grades 4-6)
- Dialectic (grades 7-9)
- Rhetoric (grades 10-12)
You can see the different levels for the Year One Week Twelve cards above. Each level has either more information, or additional verses. While this is not the case for every week, you will find the Bible Memory Verse Card Sets progress with the levels.
I hope this visual example of just one week of the card sets helps you decide which levels will best serve your children. The levels are designed to allow you to circle around and add more depth to your Bible studies as your children develop and grow.
Printing Bible Road Trip™ Bible Memory Verse Cards
If you’d like, you can also print your cards on regular copy paper and laminate them. When my children were younger, I would print their cards on cardstock and then laminate them as well.
You’ll want to print your cards single-sided.
Supplies for Your Bible Road Trip™ Bible Memory Verse Cards
You won’t need all of these supplies; you can pick and choose which ones you’d like to use. I’ve just put together some suggestions for you. We’ve printed ours on cardstock, used a rotary cutter to cut them apart, and we’ve stored them in a wood box that each child decorated.

Cutting the Cards into Weekly Bible Verses
While you can cut them with a scissors, it’s difficult to do that with a scissors. I suggest using a rotary trimmer. Sometimes you can get a great deal on the smaller ones at Costco, or another warehouse store, but I prefer the larger version as they allow you to measure a full sheet of paper easier.
You’ll want to cut your sheet in half, stack it, and cut it in half again. The whole process is very quick, and I’ve demonstrated it for you in the video.
Storing Your Bible Verses
You can either laminate them, punch a hole in the upper corner, and then stored on a book ring. Be sure to punch your hole far enough in to prevent ripping and far enough out to allow the card to turn on the book ring.
Or, you can store your cards in a recipe-style box that’s large enough to hold 4×6″ cards either lying down or standing up. We like to get boxes that are unfinished and then finish them as an art project.
Use Your Bible Memory Verse Cards with the Bible Road Trip™ Curriculum
Each week of the curriculum, you’ll find scheduled Bible reading with discussion questions, books to read about the Bible, engaging videos to watch, notebooking to do, countries to pray for, and more. There are also Bible verses to memorize each week. The Bible Road Trip™ Bible Memory Verse Cards correspond to the assigned verses for each week.
I suggest that in addition to having your children work on memorizing the Bible verses on the cards each week, that you also have them write the verses out on the copywork pages included in the Bible Road Trip™ Notebooking Journals.
The Bible Road Trip™ Bible Memory Verse Card Sets are designed to make memorizing Bible verses easier for you as a family. Just open your memory verse box or flip the cards on your book ring, and you’re ready to memorize the next verse!
