Students will test their skills by organizing blocks and materials in Minecraft as they are put through a color-based build-a-thon! Students will select their own building zone based on a specific color. With their chosen color, they must sift through all of the materials in Minecraft to fill and organize their building area with as many items as they can that correlate with that color!

1. Before we start building, the LearningWorks For Kids Gamer Guides will introduce the thinking skill. We will discuss examples of the thinking skill in real-world activities, and talk about how the thinking skill will be used in the game. 2. Periodically throughout the session, we will reflect on how the thinking skill is being used in the game, and strategies to improve our skills through the following rounds of gameplay. 3. Through out the session we will relate the thinking skill in the game to tasks your child must must overcome on a daily basis. LearningWorks for Kids (LW4K) views gameplay as a foundation for children’s learning. LW4K LIVE classes leverage children's attention, persistence, and love of gaming as tools for developing executive functioning, social-emotional, and academic skills used in and out of game play. Our teachers are expert gamers, trained in psychology and education with the goal of making game-based learning into real world skills. But playing games is not enough! We apply evidenced-based strategic teaching principles and the LW4K model of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” to make gameplay “Digitally Nutritious” and help students identify, think about, and then apply the skills they are practicing in gameplay to the real world. While our classes are great fun, there is always a teaching component included. Typically we spend about 10 minutes at the beginning of class, talking, watching video, and strategizing about our targeted skill (e.g. Planning, Time Management, Organization, Flexibility, etc). The remainder of the glass is gameplay where we apply the “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” strategies to promote real world learning. Your kids will have a blast playing video games with our teachers and learn skills that will help them at home, school, and in their daily activities.
Our dedicated, experienced Learning Works for Kids instructors always make sure that every session is just as enjoyable as it is educational. This course will be led by a member of our LearningWorks LIVE team. For more information about our team, please visit the "About Us" page on the LearningWorks for Kids website.
