Get your girls prepared for seminary by introducing the Scripture Masteries with these bookmarks!
For most of my childhood, my mom was the early-morning seminary teacher in our home. She got released when I was about 8 years old, and I guess she had a hard time letting go of teaching because we started having family scripture study and would do what she would as a seminary teacher. I was able to learn and pass off many of the scripture masteries long before my seminary years... and when I did go to seminary, I feel like I had a great head start.
Even though seminary may be a ways out for some of the girls, this is an awesome introduction and review of some key scriptures (or even just a way to get the girls to open their scriptures and get an idea of what's in there). Each bookmark has the scripture reference and a description of what the scripture is about. There are 25 scripture masteries for each book making 100 total (Book of Mormon, The Doctrine and Covenants, The Old Testament, The New Testament).
For this activity, you can ask the girls to bring their own scriptures, or if it's appropriate and you have the budget, you can provide them with their very own set of scriptures (I got my very own set from my aunt when I turned 8, and they are still the ones I use today). Then they can spend the activity marking the scripture masteries in their scriptures, cutting out these bookmarks and placing them in their scriptures. I would have LOVED this when I went to seminary. Hopefully this can give them a good head start!
