Memorization

A Memorisation booklet for Grade 1 Classes
To help better memorise the various quotes and prayers, 
A lovely memorisation booklet has been put together  (based on an idea from Leyla Neilsen Atusa Nemat)
Each time the children give the memorisation a try, they get a tick in one of the boxes. 
Once they can say the whole quote / prayer by heart, they get a sticker in the last box.

It has been found that an A4 size colouring often takes longer than what we had time for. A time saver & less copies to do.
