SKRAFTY Homeschool Minecraft Review and Giveaway

SKrafty Reviews and Giveaways

Welcome!

We are so excited to be a part of the SKRAFTY Homeschool Minecraft review!  We are even more excited to be able to be part of ANOTHER AWESOME GIVEAWAY for BACK TO HOMESCHOOL!!  If you looked at our curriculum choices for the new year you will see SKRAFTY listed as a resource we will be using!  We have been using Astronomy for Kids for this review and my son has LOVED it!

It's back to school time, and for homeschool families - that means gathering curriculum, planning and finding new ways to inspire kids in their studies. SKrafty Homeschool Minecraft is the perfect way to add the fun and inspiration you need. This fall, the class line up is spectacular! If you need homeschool math, science, bible, history, language arts or more . . . you are in for a treat. Using some of your favorite homeschool curriculum companies (including Apologia Science, Mystery of History, and A+ Interactive Math) you'll learn to incorporate Minecraft projects into your family homeschool.

"Since starting Skrafty my son has blossomed. His typing has gotten a lot better. School work is not a chore any more I just give him the list of what needs to be done and he does it. He finds the lessons entertaining and engaging and he loves the activities that go along with them. We are all very grateful for Skrafty." ~ Cheryl J. "My son enjoys playing on Skrafty with other kids and I love that it is a safe, moderated Minecraft server! While playing on Skrafty he has learned creative building, developed critical thinking skills, made friends, and learned to be a team player. The classes have been fun and the reading program has encouraged him to read more than ever. Skrafty has been such a blessing to our family!" ~Julie B.
Special needs learning:
"Skrafty has been a huge blessing to our family! My son with dyslexia is not only learning but enjoying learning!!!! His reading and writing have developed more with Skrafty than any other program we have used. The classes are engaging because they are so hands on and truly turn learning into an adventure. I so highly recommend Skrafty!" ~ Caroline D.
  What we learned:

Honestly, he looked forward to it each and everyday.  He loves to build and virtual building was great.  The lessons that went with each building assignment were short, but sweet and he retained what he learned.  He has been singing the planet song for weeks now.  When his assignment was done for the week, I felt comfortable letting him play in creative mode on the server.  I love that it’s well monitored, and has strict rules.  I have limited the time I allow him to play on Minecraft, but I love that it now has a learning element.  We will definitely be taking some more Minecraft classes in the Fall. 

Here are some screenshots of his completed assignments:

Rocket

These were just a few of the many things he built for his assignments.  We are new to Minecraft, so I spent a few days trying to figure out the ins and outs of Minecraft myself before I turned the controls over to my 8yo.  Aside from the course, we have only played around in creative mode, which is all I am interested in for my son at this point.  However, SKRAFTY’s rules and settings make all of Minecraft safe and kid friendly (and joining the server is FREE!).

Astronomy for Kids is a self-paced class, and the cost is only $6.99 and is a 6 week (6 lesson) program. 

Affordable: Extremely affordable classes (between $6.99 - $32.00) make it easy to add creativity and excitement into your education at home. Sign up HERE for live classes or self-paced classes and begin your journey into the world of homeschool Minecraft with SKrafty.
