Psalm 150

The kids are doing Y'KNOW (Youth and Kids Night Of Worship) this April in place of their usual spring musical. Kitty Kat has been asked to recite Psalm 150 as a part of the program. One of the methods that helps her remember passages is to draw pictures that represent the passage. Psalm 150 is a very good candidate for this method of memory. I suggested she try this to keep everything in the proper order and she got excited. Kitty Kat loves to draw. Today, she showed me her sketches and I snatched up the paper to scan it in. Her eyes got big and she said, "Maybe I should have made it neater." Her first draft was very good, however, I wanted to give her a chance to draw it to her satisfaction. Here is the result:

Psalm 150 (NIV)

Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing
Praise him with the sounding of the
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with tambourine and
praise him with the strings and
praise him with the clash of
praise him with resounding

Let everything that has breath praise
the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

Alright, that Psalm looks kind of eerie when Blogger posts it. I had it lined up differently.

Kitty Kat used her drawings as a cheat sheet at practice Saturday. She got stuck at one point with a word on the tip of her tongue. One of the directors was going to try to help her pronounce the word she was stuck on. Another director said, "You can't help her, it's pictures." The first lady took a look anyway and seemed a little baffled. They were just about ready to just have Kitty move on when she remembered the word. She will probably remember this Psalm for years after the night of Y'KNOW (April 27th).

What a wonderful way to help kids learn stuff. The more I learn about homeschooling, the more impressed I am. I wish the public school systems could borrow some of y'all's techniques. The kids would actually LEARN something.
