Memorization Games
Lay the cards out on a table in order. Point to each in turn and have the students say the card. Help them learn to pronounce the names correctly. After reviewing all the cards, turn a few random cards over. Review the whole list again, depending on the students to say the names of the over-turned cards. Turn more over each time until the students can repeat the whole set.

Mix up the set and give the class a time limit to get as many in order as possible. Divide the class into teams if you have lots of students and give each team a set.

Adhere the cards to magnets and use a cookie sheet or magnetic white board to put the cards in order.

More memory activities...

Make two sets to make a concentration game. Make the students pronounce each name as they turn them over. For older kids, ask students a review question when they find a matching set. To help keep them from seeing through the cards, print the second side (available above).

Review Game contributed by helpful reader Paula
With the books of the Bible cards, after they have been passed out (depending on class size, each student can have at least 3 cards), the teacher can name a book, a story that is found in one of the books, an animal, a place, etc. and whoever has it puts it down on the table. It can be done in teams and the team that gets all cards on the table first wins. Of course, don't give out all the cards and randomly give info.

Print Troubleshooting

Right click on the link and choose "Save Target As..." (IE) or "Save Link As" (Firefox)
to save the file to your computer. Open the copy on your PC and print from there.
The cards are laid out to fit on business card sheets 2 across and 5 down, centered vertically with no margin between the cards, on an 8.5"x11" sheet of paper (letter size US). If yours don't fit on the cards, try checking your Adobe Print Settings.

Adobe Reader's Print Dialog Box will often have "Fit to Printer Margins" selected be default under Page Scaling in the section. Change that to "None". Also, make sure "Auto-Rotate and Center" is unchecked. Both of these options can result in Adobe resizing the page, which causes the cards to not fit.


Thanks to these great volunteers who provided the foreign language translations!
