I'm wondering if you can suggest a Bible memory program?  My older is so resistant to the MP Christian Studies program (for some good reasons, some native stubbornness) ... I am good for Bible reading (though happy for suggestions there too, if you have something wonderful) but would love suggestions for systematic memory, esp. maybe of some longer sections or verses that speak to a child's heart (and not just Bible history &c).

I don’t use a curriculum for memory. I’ll just print up a verse and we say it a time or two each day for the week. Some passages I’ve chosen are Psalm 1, Philippians 2, we always do the Christmas passage from Luke 2 in November and December. Certain Proverbs are also a good choice.

We've had fairly good success using the Charlotte Mason memory system. You can google it to find out more specifically how it works. Its good for shorter verses and also works well for longer passages or chapters.

Thank you both!  I am glad to have the ideas for verses, and will look up the CM memory system.  I wish I had a more systematic plan than I do for our verses, but perhaps shall just take it one at a time.

We have had success with these:  http://rosskingmusic.com/sing-and-learn/

This past year we took Proverbs 3 and just added a verse a week.  The first day we talked about what the new verse meant (much of the proverb it takes two verses together to complete a thought). Subsequent days we practiced, with Friday as a "Check Progress from Memory" day. 

This next year we are going to try this: http://www.donpotter.net/pdf/hoffman-you-can-memorize.pdf

I realized that what I'm really needing is a set of scriptures to memorize.  Maybe we will stick with the MP Christian Studies selections: there are plenty there, if you count the K-3 years it is a new bit of Scripture more-or-less weekly for 6 school years.  But my older child is starting this late, and there's not an emphasis on scriptures that really sink into one's heart; there is more an emphasis on the historical story being told, and hitting the high points.  I may just need to work through it myself as we go and find scriptures that make sense for him.

I'm very grateful for y'all's help with this!

Well, color me convinced.  I really like Sonya's materials generally (though I don't use their curriculum plan), and these look wonderful.  Thank you for posting the link -- I've seen them recommended, but never actually hied myself over there to look at them.

I am trying to figure this out for next year as well.  Right now I am inclined to use verses from the Navigators Topical Memory System:

blue plaid, I especially like the longer sections they've selected (Sermon on the Mount, Ephesians and the Timothys).  These would be wonderful for my older son.

I like the SCM method as well. It's mostly for me a matter of keeping myself organized.  I don't always use their order but it's easy to change it around.

Also, free is great!

We pick a verse each week. I’ve chosen a variety of ways. Lists others have made. A key verse from the past Sunday’s sermon. A verse from our group Bible study. We read it aloud at the beginning of each day during our morning basket. At the beginning of the week, the kids are all looking it up or repeating after me for those that can’t read yet. By the end of the week, they are all saying it from memory. The older ones write it during the week to practice handwriting. But other than that, we are pretty low key about it and they memorize them easily.
