There are songs for learning scriptures (just look at many of the devotional type songs). There are also songs that teach the “drills & skills”. Most people are familiar with the books of the New Testament or the Apostles’ Song. I also sing the songs for the Old Testament, Sons of Jacob, and Days of Creation.
Since I ALWAYS love a visual when I teach anything, the Sons of Jacob, Ten Plagues, and Days of Creation patterns became song charts to teach those concepts. You could use those same patterns to create a flip chart if you preferred that over the larger chart.
All you need is a poster board, letters purchased or made on a die cut machine, magic markers, and a pattern. I love the patterns that I copied from Ideashop magazine several years ago. You could also use patterns found online or in pattern books. Just keep the pictures simple and colorful.
I will have more to say in future posts about using singing to teach. For now, just brush up on familiar tunes like “Ten Little Indians” and that will go a long way!
