Math with MineCraft – Bulding a city with blocks

Do you know that game? I did not until all kids in the world know about it. Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources or mine deep in Survival Mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs.

Kids like it and so many of our students.

I was thinking on engaging them to the math class, link the subject, and create a fun environment in the  classroom.


How is the city organized? Understanding how to build a city through math and Minecraft.

Blocs cut in 3 cm each side.

The city will be organized in blocks. (Just like the game)


Square shape

City organization



 Color and blank sheet of paper.

Your students can be freely build the city the way they want it!


Drawing therapy -Use this Classroom Management to Calm Your Students Down 

I have already seen many ways of calling this activity: Art therapy, art for healing, and that goes on and on. I actually got myself the chance to invent something: Drawing therapy. I tested and used that to calm my students down whenever we have 10 to 15 minutes to cool down.

I was looking something interesting for kids to get themselves focused. Just like a meditation time, but they can actually do something while doing this.

This is something not to improve drawing skills and anything. It is a moment for kids to focus, calm down and to be cool.

I have already tested the activity before sharing the idea with you. It seems just right, once kids get focused and feel pleasure to make arts happen!

I do some story telling that I created myself. Let’s started with Mr. Turtle. He is a fellow that invites everybody around for a coffee:

Miss Suzanne is a little tiny lonely OWL begging for attention:

That is actually a vegetarian Shark, he is sweet and lonely, some of his friends ask him to shark it out!

Have you ever seen a Penguin that dances? We have, he is right here!

That frog can eat everything around him:

Now you ask me, how have I done those? I researched and I got how to draw these animals step by step. Check some out: 

You type in Google: how to draw ______ step by step. 
Have fun! You students will have a silence moment, I bet they will. 


Working on behavior – David goes to school, by David Shannon

I have seen in scholastic website something amazing! A craft from the book: David goes to school, by David Sannon. I got the amazing idea and I worked hard with my students.

David is apparently a boy that needs to understand that there are rules, and  deals that we need to follow at school.

His teacher asked him all the time to behave. One day he needed to stay at school after school time and he got a star from his teacher because of his good attitudes after all the misbehaving. He became a star student!

Kids loved that story, and the craft. I recommend this amazing reading time with your students or sons and daughters.


Teaching students how to build their self-esteem


There are many students out there that need acceptance when they are among people. We surely know that parents should be teaching that, but why not teaching them, too?  Sometimes it is something really hard for students to accept the way they are. Kids don’t like to be any different of the patterns that the TV , society or magazines provide them.

 Good news, they can find it by reading. 
It is actually O.K to show them that all the differences are acceptable, but how come if the media tells us the opposite? The media must not dictate the way we think about ourselves. Many of our students do not know that truth. So teach them!

Kids must know from now on that they have to get the acceptance they need from themselves. Once they understand that they can love the way they are, they will feel that any outward characteristic is acceptable once they learn to love themselves.

Even if people tell them the opposite, they must always believe that who they are is precious. Every part of their body, thin or fat, tall or short, blond or brunette, black or white, all of them are only characteristics, and each of them have their particular way of being. They have got understand that it is ok to be different.

That truth can get into their hearts and Never Ever goes away. Educators like us can be part of that as well as parents. We spend so much time with them, why not writing the truth in their hearts that can live inside of them  forever?

The book IT IS OK TO BE DIFFERENT by Todd Parr, follow him in Facebook: Like Todd Parr, can be an open eyes to our kids. 

Of course it is always great to have an worksheet to go along our conversations.
How about writing a book with our students about that?
