Do you know the Ten Commandments? Can you say them in order*?
It's easy to memorize them by using your ten fingers and our Look n' Learn Ten
Commandments Finger Cards! (This is an instant digital download.)
The Look n' Learn flash cards are a great resource for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners! A Spanish version is also available; they're a great resource for mission trips too!
The commandment # corresponds to the # of fingers.
Look at the first three commandments.
Say and imitate the action using your fingers.
Now do it on your own without looking!
You'll have them memorized in seconds!
Kids make their own set of flash cards, and can then play a game of one-on-one memory challenge with each other! (See another game idea in the Reviews section, below.)
*The order of the commandments is according to the traditional Hebrew Bible.

You'll receive, via email, five 8.5" x 11" charts with two commands per page. Copy them on card stock paper to make flash cards or for use with an overhead projector. Whichever way you choose to use them, your class will
learn all Ten Commandments in just minutes!
Please note, the picture side of the cards do not have the commandment written on them; this allows multiple Bible translations to be used. If you choose to use our translation, a simplified version of the commandments are written opposite the picture. Cards are hole punched and held together with an easy-to-use loose-leaf binder ring (not included).

Our Church has been using the 10 Commandments finger method for sometime, but now I'm teaching the preteens and want to reinforce their learning. We've found these to be excellent for kids AND adults! Bless you heaps.
Thank you for this wonderful tool for teaching the 10 Commandments, with hand motions. This method has been so successful over the years, the older graduates remind me that they still remember their Ten Commandments! To God be all glory!

Game suggestion: Make three or more sets of cards 5" x 5". Each set in its own color. On one side have the commandment and on the other side the appropriate number of the commandment. Laminate. Place cards in colored groups but in random order on a board attached with either blue
sticky-tack or magnetic tape, numbered side up. Children divide into teams and choose a color. One person in the first team chooses a number and says the corresponding commandment. If correct, remove the card from the board and move to the next team and so on. The first team to collect their set wins.
This is an extremely popular game with our children.

You have fantastic resources. My favorite is your lessons on the 10 Commandments. Although I taught it sometime ago, the kids still use the hand signals. Keep up the good work.

These were absolutely amazing! I probably could have named four of the commandments prior to preparing for this lesson for our kindergarteners, and now both my daughter and I can go through all ten!
