Have a prayer journal for each kid - write prayers for that child - over the time you have created a memory journal with your hopes, fears, challenges, and love all recorded. add to their journals all ready.
Scripture Calendar - Love this idea! If anything you'll memorize 12 verses each year. Could add a numbered blank list on each page to write things you were thankful for that day (fill up the whole month)
IBTEACHNU Language Arts: Interactive notebooks Really like using 1 journal page for the whole month and having the students spend all month developing. This can become an all in one for all the activities.
