Hi Shauna,
I was called to be a seminary teacher about a week ago. I love your blog!
You have so many amazing ideas! Can you explain to me what "Scriptorians" and "Master Scriptorians" are?
Thanks for your time,

Scriptorians memorized and recited the 25 Scripture Mastery verses during the school year.

Master Scriptorian memorized and recited the 25 Scripture Mastery verses all in one sitting.

Most of the Master Scriptorians were Scriptorians first and then sat down with me and recited all 25 when they were on their last scripture or shortly after then.

Thanks for your explanation. I love how motivated your students are. I hope I will be able to motivate mine as well as you have!

I also gave an option of Scripture Scholar for those who dont memorize well. To earn this award, they needed to give a brief explanation of each scripture and demonstrate that they understand it.

No one chose to earn this, but I will offer it again. I know not everyone memorizes well and I wanted my students to feel like they could succeed.

I took over teaching my class in early October and my students had never had an emphasis on Scripture Mastery so it was important to elevate their understanding of Scripture Mastery. They amazed me.

The Scripture Scholar is a good option. The kids' ability levels vary so much.
