Yes! Totally agree – once you can relate the concepts to ones you know (the template literal example is a good one) it makes it easier to understand.
The sugar certainly makes React easier to work with later (probably part of why it's popular!) but can make for a bit of overhead initially. I think a careful and intentional introduction to concepts like JSX can help :)
