Memorization

Today I was working with a student who had been unsuccessful with memorizing his weekly Bible verse all year.  He said that he had been copying it at home each night.  So we worked together to find a way that would work.  Finally we discovered that he could only be successful with tiny pieces.  So we walked around the school library together with him echoing only 1 of 4 lines.  We shouted out and used great voices and began to say it together.  Finally he could easily say the line by himself.  His assignment from me was to keep up the walking and have fun saying that line all through the evening.  There was laughter and joy on his face because he had actually learned part of it!! There are a million different ways to find success with spelling words also.  It brings to mind the movie in which this awesome student became a spelling bee champion from spelling while she jumped rope.  What a movie it was!
