Storytelling with Minecraft Homeschool
It’s week 5 and the final week of Build Your Own Adventure, my son’s latest class with Minecraft Homeschool. He has finished writing and building his own adventure map and has tried out a few maps made by some of his classmates. It’s time to enjoy the sandbox and maybe play some mini-games with his classmates.
I’ve always let my son choose which Minecraft Homeschool class to join. For this term (right after summer camp), he chose Build Your Own Adventure, his first writing class. I enrolled him in this class last month, not knowing that it would work hand in hand with his Language Arts lesson a little further down the road. At the same time that he was building his own adventure story in Minecraft, he was also practicing how to write a story in his Brain Quest 4 workbook. As luck would have it, he was able to imagine and improve on telling his story by crafting it both in Minecraft Homeschool and in Brain Quest! (I am one very happy homeschooling mom!)
Now, it’s time for my son to just enjoy playing in Minecraft Homeschool until the next class in November. We are signing up, and we are excited! (Though I don’t play the game, I’m a Minecrafter’s mom and an avid supporter of Minecraft. I was so amused to see my son using a virtual book and quill to write his adventure in Minecraft. How cool!)
