Fisher Hill Store - Products

Each level begins with the English Reading and Spelling workbook.  The Vocabulary workbook reinforces the new words learned at each level. Vocabulary is key for reading comprehension.  Multiple encounters of a new word is required before a word is really known.  Repeated exposure to a word in a variety of contexts can add dimension to what is known about the word.  “The more opportunities students have to think about and use the words they are learning, the more elaborate their mental repesentations of the words will be.” (Bringing Words to Life by Isabel Beck.)  Fisher Hill’s vocabulary workbooks provide this necessary practice for learning new words at each of the six levels in the Fisher Hill’s English Literacy Program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults.  There are many pictures and graphic organizers to help students remember and understand the new vocaublary words.

Graphic organizers are visual representations or frames used to organize information. Graphic organizers are tools that can be used to visualize and organize information. They can help students see the relationships between ideas; and more easily understand, remember and apply information.  Fisher Hill’s English Vocabulary for the Spanish-Speaker workbooks are full of graphic organizers to help students learn vocabulary.

As with all Fisher Hill workbooks, the activities and lessons are not overwhelming.  The workbooks are explicit, systematic and very structured.  Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there are many pictures yet the content is for adults. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the end of each lesson.

On our website, if you click on any workbook, you can view sample pages from that book.

On our website, there are placement tests to determine on which level a student should begin the literacy program.  A student needs a score of 80% to go to the next level.  For example, if a student gets 60% on the placement test for level one, then that student needs to begin with level one with English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. Each level begins with the Reading and Spelling workbook.

These placement tests can be found under Teacher Resources on our website www.Fisher-Hill.com .  Teacher Resources can be found on the top tool bar.  Click on Teacher Resources, then click on Reading and Spelling.  Then scroll down to the placement tests. The placement tests are called Sound Spelling Placement Test Book 1 and so forth.  Sound Spelling Placement Test Book 1 is for level one. Here you will also find instructions on how to give the tests.
