We Have A Comprehensive Curriculum

Many Parents under estimate the power of Block Based programming. We heard it many times that our child has already finished a program in Scratch before and now we want him/her to learn Code based programming. Majority of the cases, Students went through only a basic level of Scratch and most of them already forgot what was taught.

Did you know, Scratch is so extensive that you can create:

  • Very complex games like Super Mario with multiple levels?
  • Integrate with hardware like Raspberry Pi and control sensors?
  • Heck, you can even build your own Robot with Scratch?

Our Coding for kids – Beginners program has comprehensive curriculum with 5 modules with each module running for 12 weeks that takes a student from basics to all the way of building complex games like Super Mario. 

Check out our Coding for Kids – Intermediate program for more serious learners that surpassed the Block based programs and want to delve into Code based programs 

5 Modules to become a Block Programming Guru

Level BL01

Suggested for Grades 1&2

Students get introduced to digital platforms and the basics of passwords and security as part of Digital Literacy. We then teach them fundamental concepts like sequencing, binary, loops, events, and data. These concepts form the backbone of real programming. As a final project, Students build the “Game of Bounce”. 

Imagine the excitement of a 2nd Grader after building a whole game by him/herself…Priceless!!

Level BL02

Suggested for Grades 2&3

Students start learning technical details of fundamental concepts like sequencing, events, loops, conditionals, binary, etc. All this helps them understand coding languages easier in the subsequent modules. As a final project, students will build the famous “Game of Flappy Bird” with a nice twist.

Imagine how cool a 3rd or 4th grader will feel after building this game? Sense of Accomplishment!!

Level BL03

Suggested for Grade 3&4

Students start learning the big boy concepts of sprites, digital citizenship, impacts of computing, nested loops, and functions. This is their introduction to programming jargon. As a final project, students will build the “Game of Soccer”.

How about inspiring kids to get interested in Soccer through this so they may actually join a class? Wouldn’t we love for our kids to play sports outside?

Level BL04

Suggested for Grade 4&5

Students now start to wear big boy pants wrestling with concepts like variables, data, loops, Internet, sprites, and digital citizenship. They should now be in a position to listen and talk the language of programmers. As a final project, students build the “Game of Dance Party”.

This is so much fun that we have many reports of kids and parents breaking into Dance. After all, Learning should be fun!!

Level BL-Guru

Suggested for Grade 4 to 7

Students learn how games work, how the logic is developed and how a man running in a temple is translated into code. They learn to make timeless classic games like Pacman, 2D Temple Run, etc. As a final project, students build the “Game of Super Mario”.

Now this is the level to be achieved before we say our kids know Scratch already.

Methodology

formal instruction

Student Code Review

A class starts with the review of previous coding topics. Students show the code they made for review.

teacher-guided practice

Formal Teaching

The teacher takes the coding project one step further and teaches whatever is need to accomplish this.

self-guided practice

In-Class Practice

Students implement the code they have just learnt and the hurdles they face can be solved by teacher.

assessment

Why Choose 98thPercentile

Guided Learning

There are many self-guided platforms to learn Coding. In fact, even we use some of the best ones like Code.org. However, it is highly unlikely that a student is motivated for a long time to finish the entire program on his/her own. Our programs are teacher guided so there is a discipline and help if a student is stuck somewhere.

State-of-art Platforms

We use the best resources in the world to teach our students how to code. Platforms like Code.org and Scratch are of international standards which people all over the world use. This helps us give students the best teaching instruction possible with the added benefit of a teacher guiding the whole learning.

Creativity Boosters

All our programs are designed in such a way to challenge the students' creativity. It is a moment of pride for each student to show their homework project in the next class. Every program includes Show & Tell after a significant project where parents are invited and students explain their project and do a demo.

Small Class Size

We accept only up to 4 students in a class. And when a batch begins, it’s all done. No more getting in. This lets us give personal attention to all students and boost their learning speed. We can also make sure no child gets left behind and achieve awesome results.

Friendly Competitions

Our small classes of up to 4 students mean that students compete with their classmates to make their projects look more awesome. This sparks an interest to learn an extra step to get ahead of the class. This is the best motivation for kids to achieve excellence.

Comfort of your Home

The program is executed online so it can be taken from the comfort of your home. You don’t need to ferry your kids to and from the learning center, sit in the lobby for hours and waste your time. Sit back, relax while we work on making your child the next Bill Gates.

World Class Curriculum

We add on to the world class curriculum built by platforms like code.org. These are carefully designed based on the learning capacity of the grade a student belongs to. Our additions make it even better by introducing teacher guidance, additional Capstone projects and public speaking & presentation skills.

Fully Managed Program

Right from day 1, we take care of installing the required tools for the projects to guiding them through the various stages, sitting with the students and troubleshooting any problems they might have, making sure they have mastered a concept before moving on to the next, giving adequate practice, tracking progress. We take care of everything.

Life Skills Included

Along with teaching them how to code, depending on their age and learning capacity, we teach them few more concepts like presentation skills in the form of “show it to your parents”, video recording and editing skills to effectively market their product, learn more about internet and cyber security to keep them safe from online fraud, etc.

FAQs

We take utmost care to only hire the best of the teachers. We also train the teachers significantly before we put them in front of a student. We are very confidant this is a highly unlikely scenario. Despite of all that, our programs guarantee satisfaction. Just let us know before the 2nd week of classes, we will gladly return all money. 

We take great care in starting classes on-time every time. However, emergencies can happen and we will make it up by offering an extra class.
