Reading and Writing: ESL and Computer Literacy for Grades 3-5 in Sri Lanka

Building on the success of our Grade 1 and 2 program PIMD launched in 2011, in partnership with the Provincial Departments of Education in Sri Lanka, an extension program for Grades 3-5. In these grades we aim to develop English literacy and overall English competency through a focus on reading and writing. We have adopted a guided reading approach using levelled readers and small group teaching. PIMD provides teacher training and all teaching materials to the participating schools. We also have trained Master Trainers to carry on the professional development of Teachers in the Lotus Program schools.
