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.
