I work in a K-8 district where we have jumped into coding activities with students.  Our issue is that it is just a handful of teachers that are jumping on board and including coding in their classrooms.  But it's been a separate thing, not included in the curriculum.  Has anyone done any work creating a curriculum that integrates coding into the math, science, or ELA curriculum?  Or has anyone created a scope and sequence that they are willing to share?

 Hello All! Just wanted to share a math structure that I have been implementing this year called BUILD. It is a similar structure to Daily 5, but for MATH! :) If you are looking for a structure that has your students composing and decomposing numbers daily, check it out! This is great for pre-k through 1st/2nd grade!

How important are the #arts to #STEM? Should we be focused on #STEAM instead of STEM? This article broaches both sides of the debate. What are your thoughts? How would this impact (positively/negatively) your classroom? http://vz.to/1Jniy12
