Just like a lot of kids around the world, my kids just love Minecraft. We have Minecraft for the computer, on our iPads, and the Xbox 360. For P life pretty much revolves around Minecraft. D loves playing and watching videos of Minecraft as well. I will play along with the kids as well, and recently I have started my own survival world on my computer. The kids prefer creative and I prefer survival.
There are many good things about Minecraft. I love that the kids use their imaginations to create different structures and statues. P plays with a couple of his friends on a server that the husband has made for them. On their server you will find mini games, mazes, a dragon statue, and many other things. It is amazing what these kids can put together with blocks. There are also other servers that P playes on that he plays games with people from around the world. Some of the games use strategy and alliances to help you survive. To communicate on Minecraft the players need to type to each other. This aspect has really helped P become more confident in his spelling. He is the type that wants you to write or type everything for him. Yet now he tries to spell things on his own, unless he is in a hurry to answer a game similar to pictionary. P and his friends talk to each other over Skype to figure what games they are going to play together or decided what they are going to build on their server. While talking on Skype the kids help each other spell different things for signs or controlls.
