Beatitudes Copywork Pages

Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount contain His “Blessed are …” blessings called The Beatitudes, one of the most loved portions of the Gospel.

Jesus describes a character trait or action that is often not associated with blessedness. He then describes the reward or blessing of such people who follow God’s ways.

I have created these Beatitude Copywork pages which include a detailed discussion of Charlotte Mason’s Copywork approach, the full Beatitude Scripture followed by a copywork page for each verse with a personal response or interpretive writing prompts.

Charlotte Mason’s  Copywork lessons are power-packed and very naturally offer short lessons where the child can practice beautiful handwriting, develop correct grammar and improve spelling, increase vocabulary, and seamlessly teach good writing style.

More importantly, these Scripture Copywork lessons provide an opportunity for your child to learn, understand, memorize and make the Scriptures a meaningful personal part of their lives. (Read this post describing Copywork stages in detail.)

Back in 2010 I created a Beatitudes slide strip page to help memorize the scriptures.

The child inserts the 2 strips and slides them to match.

 

For greater mastery,  when the child knows the verses well, she can leave one strip out and memorize the missing part of each verse.

A great way to help memorize the scriptures.

 

For fun, I made a Matching Beatitudes Card Game.  Here 2 or more people can play “memory” with the Beatitudes cards.

Memorizing The Beatitudes

Blessed are …

For our current Bible Study, we are reading Matthew.

I wanted the girls to memorize a whole passage, verses 3 – 12 …

… The Beatitudes

Because this passage is quite long,

and has matching values and results,

I designed a slide strip page,

where the child inserts the 2 strips and slides them to match.

 

Front page with 2 slits for the sliding strips

 

I have used different colours to help visualize and memorize the matching verses.

My children sketched a tiny image for each phrase to also help them memorize the verses.

 

Strips with matching colours for each verse

 

For greater mastery,  when the child knows the verses well, she can leave one strip out and memorize the missing part of each verse.

For fun, I made a Matching Beatitudes Card Game.

Here 2 or more people can play “memory” with the Beatitudes cards.

As always, I trust and pray that my children understand and apply these Bible verses to their daily lives.

Only the Holy Spirit produces the life of Christ in us.

We cannot aim for, trust the Lord for, try to be or do any of these Beatitudes.

Only in surrender and death to ourselves, can Jesus live out these Beatitudes through us.

Blessings to you,
