Have you ever had trouble motivating your child to write? Children learn better when they want to learn something. By connecting academic content to something they already love, we are able to take advantage of their excitement and motivation. Kids everywhere love Minecraft, which makes it the perfect vehicle for teaching a wide variety of topics. This WriteCraft unit uses Minecraft-related topics as a motivation for writing. It includes 10 writing prompts which cover a variety of genres, and each prompt comes with some instruction and a pre-writing activity. Also included are some Minecraft-themed notebooking pages and a collection of online resources for writing. WriteCraft is intended for children between the ages of 8 and 12, but it can be modified for use with older and younger students.
