So here is the deal: if you want to learn the Articles of Faith, or you want to teach them to your children, the best way is by singing the songs!

How it Works in Our Family:
In our family our goal is to read scriptures every night....yeah that doesn't always happen. But we do always sing at least one Article of Faith before prayer! You can start with the first one. I think we sung it every night for a couple weeks until my daughter had it down, and then we moved on to number two. The first one really isn't long, and you will be amazed how fast your child will memorize it!
Now that we have gone through more, and my daughter knows most of them, we each pick one article of faith to sing every night. My daughter usually picks number 4, her favorite. And my husband has been working in order to memorize all of them and right now he is working on 9, but almost has that one down so will be moving on to 10 soon! My daughter knows them all the way through number 10, so lately I have been singing number 11, as soon as she has that one down I will move on.
Sometimes we go through all of them by singing them together or taking turns. But it is working amazingly well! This would be a great way to start getting in the habit of scripture study every night! The way we read scriptures is a ton of work (but awesome):
On nights when we get everything out and read scriptures we start by singing our articles of faith while I get everything ready to do scripture people! And on nights when we don't get scripture stuff out we just sing the Articles of Faith, say family prayer, and go to bed. When she was smaller and not ready for scripture people we read out of the scripture picture books instead of scripture people.
Anyway back to the topic - try singing the Articles of Faith every night! If you really want to memorize them - this is the way!
