Doctrine and Covenants Seminary Scripture Mastery MAD GABS

Today I have something slightly different to share. I have been an early morning Seminary teacher since September, and am absolutely loving it. After seeing Mad Gabs used in a Seminary activity last year (Book of Mormon), I decided I'd like to include a Mad Gab game in my lessons. After searching for and not finding a full set of Mad Gabs for the Doctrine and Covenants online, I started working on my own set, and have finally finished a complete set for this year's D&C Scripture Masteries.

My students all love practising their SM with these cards. Except my son. He has a love/hate relationship with them. One of the funniest moments in seminary is when he reads one of the cards out loud. Everyone else in the class instantly understands the phrase he is reading - he does a really good job of slurring the words together so that it sounds right - but he can't hear it! The more times he reads it out, the clearer it sounds to everyone else and the more confused he gets, and the more everyone, including him, laughs. At least he has a good sense of humour :)


So here are my D&C SM Mad Gabs, free for you to download and use. I hope you and your students enjoy them!

The cards are in a 4 page A4 pdf document that you can download by clicking here, or on on of the the images.


You can make a set of cards by gluing the MAD GAB and it's answer back to back for each card.
OR
You can make a set of cards with only the MAD GABS on them (blank on the back), which the students can then handle without seeing the answer, then print out the whole set onto one or two pages for you (the teacher) to use as an answer sheet.

Have fun!

      Where are you teaching? We are about to have our half-term break too! So glad for the break. I feel like all I do sometimes is prepare seminary lessons (I am a first time seminary teacher too).
