Fisher Hill continues to make available its workbooks for Spanish-speaking teens and adults as ebooks that can be downloaded from our website.  The English for the Spanish Speaker series and the English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker series is already available as ebooks.  These two series are also still available as hardcopy workbooks that can be bought online.  

In February 2019, English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker series will be available as ebooks to be downloaded from our website. The hardcopy workbooks will still be available for purchase from our website. 

The English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker workbooks are made up of twenty lessons.  Lessons include practice with fluency, vocabulary, visualization, comprehension, phonology and phonics.  There is an answer key at the end of each lesson. 

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.

Reading comprehension is the goal of reading.  Reading is an essential skill for jobs and daily life.  Many people enjoy reading and say it is one of their favorite pastimes. Others read only when it is necessary. Whichever the case may be, everyone needs to know how to read. Learning to read comes more easily to some people than others.  Most people need to be taught how to read.  It is different from learning to talk.  Learning to read can be very difficult for some people but with practice, most everyone can learn to read.

On our website, there are sample lessons from these workbooks that can download.

Fisher Hill and Distribution

Fisher Hill and Distribution 150 150 fisherhilladmin

Fisher Hill and Distribution

Fisher Hill is now doing its own distribution. For 25 years, QP Distribution did this service for us.  After the death of its owner David Schafer, Fisher Hill moved all of its books from Kansas to California.  By doing our own distribution, we are able to give faster and more personalized service. We distribute English for the Spanish Speaker workbooks.

David Schafer’s Publishers Services, Inc. did our book printing for 25 years but now we are using Ben Franklin Printers that is located just 10 minutes from Fisher Hill.  Our distribution and printing are both located in Huntington Beach, CA. 

Fisher Hill very much enjoyed doing business with David Schafer and we were surprised to hear about the sudden passing of this very kind and helpful person.  

Fisher Hill’s new distribution telephone number is 1-888-407-1187.  Our email address is info@fisher-hill.com.

Go to our website at www.Fisher-Hill.com to view all of our workbooks.

One of our series, English for the Spanish Speaker has been a best- selling series for over 20 years.  The workbooks have helped thousands of Spanish-speaking teens and adults learn English. There are four workbooks and each one has stories, activities, conversations, vocabulary lists, games, dictionaries and answer keys and overall, English for the Spanish Speaker .

Fisher Hill’s Teacher Resources

 

Fisher Hill’s English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults has six levels.  Each level contains:

an English Reading and Spelling workbook

English Reading Comprehension workbook

English Writing Composition workbook

and an English Vocabulary workbook

For each level, students need to start with the English Reading and Spelling workbook. Then students can use the Reading Comprehension and Writing Composition workbooks at that level to work on reading comprehension and writing by using the decoding skills they learned in the English Reading and Spelling workbook.  With the vocabulary workbooks, students review the vocabulary from each particular level.

Fisher Hill has teacher resources on their website to go along with this literacy program.  There are placements tests to determine on which level a student should begin with in the series.  There are Word and Sentence Practice pages  and Word Chains to help students develop fluency.  There is a Scope and Sequence for the literacy program and  sample lessons or pages from each workbook.

Fisher Hill’s literacy program uses a very systematic, structured, explicit approach in teaching the forty-four English speech sounds.  Students learn these sounds and then blend these sounds to read words.  The Word and Sentence Pages and the Word Chains listed under Teacher Resources on our web site will help students develop fluency.  With fluency, comprehension skills will be easier to acquire. Don’t forget to check out Fisher Hill’s Teacher Resources.

 

We will be adding new Word and Sentence Pages and Word Chains throughout the year to be used with the English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.
