Learning Objectives

  • Help students with creative writing
  • Students start to write a story about the statement given
  • Students will explore elements within a Minecraft world and create personal characters
  • Students will explore and develop their own character’s story
  • Students will create different stories and develop language skills (written, digital and verbal)

Guiding Ideas

The main idea is that when the child writes or builds, he is able  to walk with the story actually taking place. It will help the quietest child also to share the thoughts and the imagination world!

The teacher will recite few lines to the children :- “ Our most cherished loved one, giving unlimited loving care. For your love is unconditional, You are joyful in our triumphs. Sad in our sorrow. Sacrificing yourself for us. You are the most outstanding person, You are our mom.”
She will ask the students how their mother is important in their lives and what all she does for them. She will encourage the students to talk and discuss about the topic. Minecraft offers an environment in which students will create their world as per their imagination on the questions discussed by the teacher :
1. What is your mother’s name?

2. How old is she?

3.What are her hobbies?
4.What does she like or dislike?
5.What is her favourite game ,food etc ?
6.What all do they do together?
7.Why do they like her the most?

Student Activities
