How to Survive Your First Night in Minecraft

By Jeremiah the fourth grader

You'll need: A system that you can play Minecraft on and Minecraft itself.

Okay trust me I'm very good at Minecraft and I've even gotten diamonds by myself! First, make a new world make sure to turn it to survival mode. Then, if it's your first time playing Minecraft definitely turn on bonus chest, make sure to keep superflat off and keep it on easy. Next, click the create world button. Next, no matter what biome you spawn in sprint to the bonus chest and get everything you can find in the chest. Then, if you can see a group of houses in the distance sprint towards them because you've found a village! If not run to the nearest tree and mine the wood from it with your axe if you got one or two, craft a crafting table and more wood planks. Then, if you got a pickaxe (pick) mine a staircase down and and get 3 stone and craft a stone pick. Then, mine 8 more stone and craft a furnace. Then, get more wood and put the plain wood in the top and the planks on the bottom. Then, mine more stone and craft a full set of stone tools. Next, kill 3 sheep, craft a bed and sleep and BANG! You're finished with the night!

My First Full Night in Minecraft

By Joshua, the 6th grader

When Dad said that he got Minecraft for the PS3, I was excited! I bought a book on Minecraft (it was Minecrafter) and read it to get a bunch of knowledge. When it was time for my first (full) night I was not prepared (ever tried to live in 1/2 a wooden house?) so I went out onto the ice. It was a time before hoppers, it was a time before witches, it was a time before etc. etc. Anyway, I didn't have a sword, the only tool I DID have was a wooden axe, so the only thing I did do is not look at that Enderman that was 2 blocks away from me (quite literally). I did my happy dance (in Minecraft, which is squat, unsquat, repeat) when the sun came up because I knew I was one of the few that survived their first nights! I could now say "I survived my first night!". I hope others could also survive their first night!

Project Spark

By Joshua, the 6th grader
Picture found here.
Well, I haven't done a post in a long time, so I decided to do a website and a game (they're both the same thing, basically). Well this website/game is called Project Spark! It is a programming website where you can program things but you don't need to focus on programming the characters to actually be there! You can program or play on the Xbox or you can just play on the computer (it has to be on a Windows 8 and on Internet Explorer 10 or higher). You can level up by completing feats or getting downloads or likes. You get credits the same way you level up. You use the credits to buy stuff to help you create!

My first night in Minecraft

By Jeremiah the fourth grader

This story is actually true and I admit it my first night in Minecraft was pretty short. We didn't even know anything about Minecraft. Okay here we go, this was my first night in Minecraft! Joshua and I were doing the tutorial on Minecraft when it was nighttime Josh kept telling me to get inside the house but I kept refusing to get inside and by making that choice I got killed by one spider and I even had a (puny) wooden sword!

My Narrative

By Jeremiah the fourth grader

Dave and Benny are best friends. Dave was sleeping over at Benny's place. Dave suggested playing video games but the old TV wouldn't work! Later they settled on board games like monopoly and scrabble.

Our friend from down the street

By Jeremiah the fourth grader

Personally I love going to his house. We have done so much together in Minecraft! Last night he came over to our house and he told us that he and another friend actually finished Minecraft!  We actually got to the Nether like a bagillion times!

It's almost spring time!

By Jeremiah the fourth grader

Like I said in the title It's almost spring time! Our two chickens are both laying eggs but   the Buff just randomly died a few weeks ago. Buffy layed eggs bigger than store bought ones! Buff did hog all the food though.
