    My little guy is excited about journaling!
    Jun 15, 2017

    We are just starting out on our funschooling journey, and this younger version of the minecraft journal is perfect for my 3rd grader! While we haven't started minecraft ourselves, he sees it everywhere and loves to build with Legos, so the pictures inspire him to want to do his schoolwork. Writing is usually no fun, but writing in this journal will really make a difference.

    Great for little brothers who want to be like their big brother!

    This book is great for my son who wants to do a minecraft journal like his big brother, but isn't ready for the regular journal. I just found these fun school journals this year, and I am loving how they give us a little structure, while at the same time encouraging the kids to learn about things at interest them.

    Funschooling with Minecraft, kids say yes please!

    My older son has the original Minecraft journal and my daughter wanted to work in it to but must of it was beyond her level so she was over the moon happy to get this one! Funschooling has brought the joy and love of learning back for us. A huge thank you to The Thinking Tree (Sarah and her family/friends that put their heart into these books!)

    I loved the first mine-craft book, aimed at and hogged by my older children, that when this came out for younger children I had to get one. I was able to get the PDF which I printed out at home. Aimed at younger children it has a lot of colouring /drawing/ finishing drawings improves pen skills. Some knowledge of the game is needed this is not a book that will teach you how to play mine-craft but a way of encouraging your little mine-craft gaming child in to learning/discussing many topics ie. geography, animals, poetry, spelling, brain games, maths problems, brick building, emotions, months of the year and so much more.

    I also found this book encouraged my older children (minecraft experts) to slow down, not do things in the game for the younger ones but show them how to do it for themselves. They also love helping working out maths problems in the world by placing blocks and getting the younger one to count them. ie 15 x 3 = elder child puts 3 rows of 15 blocks in ' I recommend in creative mode, day time,' (I'm learning the lino too) in the world and the younger one can count them. The sibling bonding was an unexpected benefit.

    This fantastic book is a library home school learning exercise book based on the minecraft content. For a new person to home schooling this is a great starter to gently get your child learning while all work is kept together in one book rather than bits of paper you do not know what to do with. Additional text books, fiction and non-fiction will be needed from your bookshelves or a library etc. as well as little knowledge of the minecraft game, the book explains what you will need and how to use the book on page 5. As a parent I do not need to know how to play the game but basic lingo is useful.

    Great book full of FUN learning!

    I got this book for my 7 yr old daughter who is very creative. She is always doodling, and has a very hard time with plain dry textbooks. The original Minecraft journal by the Thinking Tree, but it was roo difficult for her. The Begginer journal is a perfect fit for her, and she loves it!
    I have the full color PDF from educents.com, and a the pictures are so wonderful! The vivid colors is very inspiring. The pictures draw you in. You can't help but want t learn more. I think it's definitely worth it to get the full color version. Below is a description of what all is included. Enjoy!
    You start by choosing 8 topics (or less if you child has limited interests. You can always always do more as you go along). My daughter loves gems stones, and animals like horses, so this is really great for her. I help her choose books where she can learn about these topics, and put them into her school basket. She will use minecraft on a cheap tablet my children share.
    The date pages are so great! Months & days are hard for some kids to learn, especially spelling them, so the date pages are a non threatening way to practice then. These pages let the children express how they're feeling that day. They also let you pick ANY animal to learn about today. How awesome is that?? Then you will either de sing what it will look like in Minecraft or learn about this animal and draw a male, female, or baby; what part of the world they're in, food, habitat, and enemies. Their are also a lot of compare & contrast topics for animals in nature verses animals in Minecraft. Great for starting little ones in higher level thinking.
    It has make your own crafting recipes, and building challenges to make in your own Minecraft world.
    So many great things for critical thinking like; dyslexia games, Lego building assignments, Finish the picture with historical Lego pictures and others, what happenens next comic strip, origami tutorials, design your own Minecraft skin.
    It also has all the great learning you need your school day like; reading , taking notes or pictures, math in your own books, and math problems with a Minecraft activity, spelling, taking notes on a documentary or tutorial, poetry, listening to history or literature, copywork, handwriting, learning about history, science, and social studies, a long with lots of things to color, draw & create.
    The Thinking Tree really knocked it out of the park with the journal . If you have a child that struggles or is resistant to conventional schooling you should really give this book a shot. Your children will love it, and so will you! It's and great way to hook your kids on learning & discovering things for them selves. Instead of memorizing and figures, they will learn HOW to teach themselves! What a great gift to give our children.
