Stand Against Poverty

Just before world leaders began gathering at the United Nations for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Review Summit, the voices of their citizens followed them, telling them, loudly and clearly: “We will no longer stay seated or silent in the face of poverty and the broken promises to end it!”

KTMS supports the realization of the MDG. Let's all act now!!!

SRA Reading Laboratory

KMTS now uses SRA Reading Laboratory for it's lower elementary learners!

SRA Reading Laboratories are a carefully structured system for teaching and developing essential reading skills. The unique multi-levelled approach helps students to get the most from every minute of learning time. They offer a tried and tested formula that have taught over 100 million children to become fluent readers.

Founded in 1938, SRA or Science Research Associates Inc. is a Chicago-based publisher of educational materials and schoolroom reading comprehension products.[1] Early on, it had a trade and occupational focus. In 1957, it moved into individualized classroom instruction with the iconic SRA Reading Laboratory Kit, a format that later translated to mathematics, science, and social studies. The labs were large boxes filled with color-coded cardboard sheets. Each sheet included a reading exercise for students. The student would then follow up with multiple choice questions. As the child moved ahead, he or she would advance in difficulty.

SRA's Reading Laboratories provide individualized reading instruction to a whole classroom of readers at different levels. The Labs offer lessons in phonics, decodable text, timed reading and fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, test preparation, and literature.

For 50 years, SRA Reading Labs have helped more than 100 million students around the world improve their reading skills. A range of reading levels encourages students to learn independently and at their own pace. Self-directed readings let you manage an entire classroom of readers at different levels. You simply initiate the program with a placement test. Then, students progress through each level at their own rate.
