Drill Tips & Hints
There are a number of important
things that you should try to remember when using a Sword Drill.
Some of these relate to the age of the children that you are working
with and others relate to how you prepare your Sword Drill.
- Keep the verses small. Remember
that the children will have to read these verses out in front
- Use verses that do not have difficult
words that children would struggle to pronounce.
- Remember that there are certain
verses that would not be appropriate for children to read out
- Always prepare more verses than
the number of finalists you expect to have. You never know what
could go wrong.
- Prepare for more than just one
translation. Get to know what versions of the Bible the children
are using and prepare the verses accordingly.
- Make sure that all the children
know what they are supposed to do and explain the instructions
clearly to those who are not sure.
- Have the finalists stand in a
position where you can watch them as well as the rest of the children.
- While the verses are being read
out make sure that the rest of the children are paying attention.
- Have the winner of the final
read out the winning verse. Try and make this verse relate to
a theme. This could be the theme of a Bible story that you are
about to teach.
