When she was younger, we would read to her each night from one of the four LDS Scripture Stories; The New Testament, Old Testament, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Book of Mormon which you can purchase at the LDS Distribution Center. When she finished one book, she would go on to another. The books are $6.50 each and come in many languages, but there is also a DVD set of all four for $7.25. You can also view them online for free at the lds.org Media Library, or The Mormon Channel.
When my daughter first became an independent reader, I wanted to find a study method that would help establish the habit of life-long personal scripture study. So I created a scaled down version of an idea found at Latter-day Homeschooling which incorporates the use of a scripture journal and the LDS Scripture Stories. For my daughter, I also included a few coordinating scripture mastery verses (you are never too young) and some of the Living Scriptures videos. We already own all of the videos. I found her a lined journal at Ross for $3.00.
Each night my daughter follows a scripture chart I created for her with each chapter or verse to read. I printed it front and back on card stock paper. I taught her what each abbreviation means. Abbreviations are something new to a 7 year-old.
|The Book of Mormon Scripture Chart|
So far I've only created the scripture card for the Book of Mormon and the New Testament. But it's working! She understands what to do. I tried to keep the questions fairly simple. You are welcome to download the Book of Mormon scripture chart below in pdf and Excel. It takes about 11 weeks to finish the cycle. I hope this post will trigger some ideas for you.

Sorry, but these are the only ones I made. My daughter is now studying from Discover the Scriptures products.
