Memory Verses

Our Science curriculum comes with a memory verse for each lesson.  We've memorized Scripture in the past, and obviously some are more difficult than others. 

We've used hand motions, songs, and pictures.  But last week, we had one with big words:

Where were you when I laid the foundation of the Earth.  Tell Me, if you have understanding, Who determined its measurements?  Job 38:4-5

There were tears.

Momma's solution:
I typed the words, cut them out, and glued them onto index cards.  Then, I marked them using the colors of the rainbow, in order, since the boys already know them. 

We laid them out, in order, revealing the verse,
and the boys could see the columns formed by the colors.
 See?  Red, orange, yellow, green blue, indigo, and violet.
We started reading the verse.  After a few times, we removed a card here and there.  Next, we removed all of the green cards, then all of the violet cards, etc.  After about 10 minutes, we all knew the verse.  Just like that! 
We'll definitely use this trick again!  I hope this helps you too.  How does your family memorize Scripture?
