Reading smoothly (fluency) is an important skill.  Fluency allows readers to think about what they are reading instead of having to think about sounding out words. Decoding skills need to be learned and practiced so these skills become automatic when reading words.  Visualizing (making pictures in your head) helps readers remember what they have read. Good vocabulary skills help readers visualize.  Readers cannot visualize a word if they do not know its meaning. All of these skills:  fluency, visualizing, vocabulary, and decoding are necessary for reading comprehension.

On our website, there are placement tests to determine on which level a student should begin.  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 Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1https://www.fisher-hill.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Placement-Test-Level-1-2.png

A Lesson about Voting

A Lesson about Voting 150 150 hill-fisher

More people voted in the 2020 election than ever before!  I wore my Voted sticker that day.  In Fisher Hill’s English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 6 there is a story about voting.  There are six workbooks in the series and each workbook has twenty stories.  The story  and comprehension questions about voting are below.

Voting

Do you vote?  Do you vote in the local, state and national elections?  Are you registered to vote?  Before you can vote, you need to be registered to vote.  You will need to fill out a registration form.  These forms can be found at your local public library, department of motor vehicles (DMV), schools, or on line.  After you fill out the form, mail it to the address located on the form.  Most states require that you register thirty days before you plan to vote.  There are seven states that allow you to register on the day that you vote.  These states are: Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming. In these states, voters can register when they arrive at the polls.  Five of these seven states rank highest in the nation in voter turnout.

You need to be eighteen years or older in order to vote and a citizen of the United States of America.  Some states do not allow convicted felons to vote. If you’re a college student living away from home, you may register to vote in the college’s city, even if that is not your permanent address.

When registering to vote, you may declare an affiliation with a political party.  The two most popular political parties in the United States are the Democrat and Republican parties. In partisan elections, such as primary elections, this allows voters who are members of a particular party to determine which of the party’s candidates will be the party’s nominee in the general election. In several states, elections are nonpartisan and voters may vote in any one of the party primaries. In these nonpartisan elections, a voter requests a particular party’s ballot when checking in at the polling place.

In general elections, you may choose to vote for all of a particular party’s candidates (straight-ticket voting) or to vote for candidates from different parties for different offices.  For example, you may vote for the Democrat candidate for President, the Republican candidate for Senator, and the Independent Party candidate for Governor.  In a general election, one’s political party affiliation does not determine which party’s candidates one may vote for.

Where do you go to vote?  You go to the polling place.  The polling place will be near your home in a community center, school, or even in a neighbor’s garage.  Several weeks before the election, you will receive a sample ballot in the mail which will have the location of the polling place where you can go to vote.

Register to vote! Tell your friends and relatives to register so everyone can vote and be part of the democratic process.
