Ten Commandments Memorization Card for Scripture Mastery

I created this handout to help my students memorize the 10 commandments in Seminary. It has the scripture, the scripture with blanks, the scripture with first letters of each word, the magic squares reminders and the license plate.

I folded this handout in half and laminated it so that the student could hold the side with the blanks up while someone in front of them checks their wording with the full verse on the opposite side..

I had the kids list the 10 commandments aloud using the motions from the video I keep mentioning:

We use the actual KJV language when we practice, however.

The kids wrote the commandments on the board after each number and list of cross references. Then we went around the circle and read the references for each.

If God Texted the 10 Commandments to Moses

If God had texted the 10 Commandments to Moses, here's what He might have sent:

M, pls rite on tabs & giv 2 ppl:

  1. no1 b4 me. srsly.

For those of you not familiar with texting shortcuts, here's the translation:

Moses, please write this on tablets and give it to the people:

  1. No one before me. Seriously.
  2. Don't worship pictures or idols
  3. No Oh My G*D's (taking Lord's name in vain)

Sharing Time Lesson Oct 06 2010

10 Commandments Activities

1. Divide the older children into groups to discuss rules that we should obey in our families, schools, church, and country. Have them consider the benefits of obeying the rules and the consequences of not obeying them (e.g., If everyone talks at once, no one will be heard). A member of each group could report for that group. Or at a later time a member of each group could be on a panel for each situation (family, school, church, country). Younger children could share one way they were obedient during the week and act out the situation.

2. Have children make props and dramatize the story of Moses on p. 12 (see Ex. 19–20, 24), then talk about how they felt as they played the various roles.
