Games and Activities for MFW CTG

Notebooking Printables for MFW CTG

All of the resources below are free.

*Mamma Jenn Bible Verse Printables

I printed our current Bible verse and hung it up on the wall. I also printed the copy work for each verse and had my kids complete those papers when copying and memorizing the Scripture.

*Greek Roots Printables – In the files section of the Facebook group MFW CTG.

We used these Greek roots printables rather than the index cards that MFW suggests. My kids had a section in their notebooks just for their Greek roots.

*MFW Coloring Page Printables – In the files section of the Facebook group MFW CTG.

The teacher’s manual directs you to create several of your own notebooking pages. This printable file made that easy! I just printed off the the notebooking page we needed, had the kids write their own summary, and placed it in their binders.
