It’s been a while since I’ve written a Mailbag Monday post, and the messages in my inbox have really been stacking up. So I’m going to try to tackle them before the end of the year, starting with this reader request for an award certificate for memorizing the Ten Commandments.
Request: Any 10 Commandment Award Certificates?
Dear Mrs. Flanders,
I have enjoyed your materials for years as a mom, grandmother, and teacher of second graders! So, thank you for all that you do!
I would like to know if you have some kind of award certificate for children who have memorized The Ten Commandments. Do you? I have looked but did not find anything. I don’t like what Google shows. If you do not, could you add it to the bottom of your To Do list? I know you are extremely busy so it may take some time, but that’s okay!!!
Response: Here you go!
I’m happy to design something to celebrate such a worthwhile accomplishment, Jill. Here’s a Ten Commandments Award Certificate in black and white:
Or, if you’d prefer color, here’s the same award certificate in green:
And that’s not all! To help in the actual memorization of this passage, I designed a little Ten Commandments paper project:
To make the project, print both sheets of paper. We used card stock to make the project more durable.
To assemble, cut along the solid lines around the picture of the tablets (and fold along the dotted lines). Then glue the top sheet to the second page, just around the edges.
That way, the tablets will swing open like little doors to reveal the commandments inside. I used the King James Version of Exodus 20:3-17 for this project.
I hope your children and grandchildren and all the second graders in your class will enjoy making this paper Ten Commandments project and will soon be on their way to earning one of those award certificates!
