Sermon on the Mount
The Sermon On The Mount, as we refer to Matthew 5-7, is full of admonitions, encouraging words and beautiful teachings from the mouth of Jesus himself. What better way to spend time than to read, read, read and copy, copy, copy and memorize these 3 chapters. These words will be a storehouse of information and teachings to encourage for years to come. While the kids are memorizing it, be sure and memorize it yourself.
I helped my boys memorize these 3 chapters (we almost finished) while home schooling them. The layout very much like the I am… passages we’ve worked on as well. Instead of repeating the “how-tos”, I’ll let you visit that page and read the details.
I originally wanted my older boys (about 12 and 14 years old) to memorize the whole thing. We didn’t quite finish so I leave you stranded below. Sorry about that. As we were working on it, my 8 year old wanted to participate so I worked up a notebook for him using 6 of the passages I thought he would enjoy memorizing and taking the whole thing a little slower. Below, all the links are for the older kids unless it says “younger kids”.
