    Fun even for non-techy households!
    Jun 15, 2017

    We encourage more outside play instead of electronics, but my kids love the minecraft theme! My 13 year old was thrilled when he saw the Minecraft Journal. New to funschooling, this is the journal he chose! He has played a little minecraft at a friends' house, but now will start learning how in short spurts along with this journal. We appreciate it being incorporated into a learning experience and look forward to using it with our other children! With a family of 10, the printable version is such a blessing!

    Great resource for Minecraft fans

    My sons, ages soon-to-be 5 and 8, are both enjoying this Minecraft curriculum! There are lots of different activities, and even my 8 year old who hates writing has been enjoying some of the writing activities so far. However, I was a little disappointed when I first bought this curriculum - even though it has over 400 pages, a lot of those pages are repeated throughout the curriculum - I was under the impression there would be 400 different lessons. But I can't complain too much, as this resource in invaluable for my kids who just want to play Minecraft all day - at least now they are interested in doing some Minecraft schoolwork too :)

    Great resource that has given my child a new found enthusiasm for his schoolwork. Highly recommend for children who have a keen interest in minecraft.

    Fun for bigger kids

    While there are lots of fun stuff aimed at little kids, this is something fun for older kids. When my 11yo son first saw this book, he got very excited. That is the first time he has ever been excited about a school book! These journals cover a lot of different subjects in a fun way. I like that they give me some structure, while at the same time encouraging kids to learn about what interests them.

    My 8 year old son likes to pick pages to do for himself. We both really enjoy this book. It really does have a whole 'fun' feel to it. I recommend it, for sure.
