The Bible is a big book. Actually, there are 66 books of the Bible, so it’s more like a library. As we teach our kids the Bible, it helps to orient them in the library by having them memorize the books of the Bible in order.
To be honest, rote memorization of the books of the Bible in order is an activity lacking in, well, fun. But we can make it more engaging for your kids. Once they know the names of the books of the Bible in order, they can begin to add context to their understanding of the biblical library, learning what genre the books fall into, and the theme and authorship of each book. Knowing these facts will help your kids navigate Scripture as they begin to study and read it.
Books of the Bible in Order
Children love to learn, and the elementary years are the perfect time for memorization– their brains are primed for it. This write, color, and memorize set will help your kids memorize the order of the books of the Bible, practice their handwriting, and they’ll receive bookmarks to help them memorize the major categories and books of the Bible.
Write, Color, and Memorize Sets
In the video below, I explain the Bible Verses for Children: Write, Color, and Memorize Set. It should help you understand the Bible Verses about Family set, although this set has verses already chosen for you.
Books of the Bible in Order
- Copywork for the categories and the names of the books of the Bible in order
- Books of the Bible memory cards
- Bookmarks with the names of the books of the Bible in order and categorized
- Fun scenes for your child to color
- Two different line widths
- A household license–you can print a set for each of your children*
*If you are using the Books of the Bible set for a school or church class, you’ll need a classroom license. Those are available at checkout from the dropdown menu.
Books of the Bible Bookmarks
You’ll find a set of five Books of the Bible bookmarks. You can print these double-sided for your kids to color.
The bookmarks are perfect for marking your child’s place in their Bible or their favorite book, and they provide an easy reference as they learn the books of the Bible in order.
Books of the Bible Memory Cards
Your child can use the cards to write the names of each book of the Bible in the category of books on the front of each card. There are enough cards provided to write each book name on one line of the cards.
Your child can then use the memory cards as flash cards to practice their recall of the books of the Bible in order.
This Write, Color, and Memorize set is a part of the Love Others bundle. Get 4 sets for the price of 3!
Books of the Bible Copywork Pages
Your child can work on copying a page they’ve learned the books of the Bible, and still have something fun to color.
There are 12 different copywork pages with two line widths available. Your child will copy the sentence or phrase on the lines below.
Print Your Write, Color, and Memorize Set
- Sometimes readers are concerned about using colored ink. If this is the case for you, there should be a setting on your printer that allows you to print in black and white. Printing in grayscale will still use some color, but it will come out prettier than black and white.
- Print the bookmarks and memory verse cards duplex (double-sided) and have them flip on the short side. (Copywork and the first three pages should be printed single-sided.)
- I recommend printing the bookmarks and memory verse cards on white cardstock so they will be more durable with no bleed-through.
Make learning the names of the books of the Bible fun for your children with lots of joyful encouragement!
Your children will be empowered to navigate their Bible, understanding what section of Scripture each book of the Bible belongs to!
