How I Use It
I use this as an every third week lesson. I teach K-8 computer class and we code once a month in every class. The 8th grade are now on to something different then Kodable. It is really geared towards the younger students that I teach.
My Take
I love it for the younger grades. I think after 3rd grade it becomes a little babyish. My fourth graders still use it but are loosing interest. Also K has a harder time in the upper levels. I usually do these levels as a whole group and have the kids move like fuzzy.
