As a pioneer working to secure a placement for CS into the elementary curriculum, Learn Jelly is just the resource I have been searching for! I am a 5th grade teacher who also trains teachers in my district to use various CS programs. My district is on board with bringing CS into every elementary classroom, but the resounding question is always, “When will we have time?” Integration is key. Your site offers an answer.
