I adapted the “slip-sliding penguins” for the memory focus of the month at our church.  Following all that was instructed, I added the books of the New Testament on the penguins belly.  One book per penguin and combining books like 1st & 2nd Corinthians, 1st & 2nd Timothy, etc.  On one belly.  I created flags to identify the divisions of the New Testament-gospels, history, letters, prophecy and put each flag in the flipper of the penguin where that division began.  With the penguins-books in order, they slipped down the snowy hill.  I changed the title of the board to January: Slip-sliding into the New Testament.  It was a great way to draw attention to the memory work.

Thanks for sharing your suggestion Debby!!
