Fisher Hill has two easy to use workbooks to help Spanish speakers prepare for the U.S. Citizenship Test.  The workbooks are called U.S. Citizenship for Spanish Speakers Books 1 and 2. The workbooks help Spanish speakers pass the English writing, reading and civics portions of the U.S. Citizenship Exam.  To pass these three sections, the applicant must be able to write correctly one sentence dictated by the interviewer; read out loud correctly one sentence given by the interviewer; answer six out of ten of the civics questions given by the interviewer.  Applicants will have three opportunities to write correctly a dictated sentence and three opportunities to read out loud correctly a sentence given by the interviewer.

U.S. Citizenship for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 provides information and practice to help pass the American Government questions on the Civics test. Book 1 also provides practice to help pass the reading and writing tests. Workbook 2 provides information and practice to help pass the American History and Integrated Civics questions on the Civics test. Book 2 also provides practice to help pass the reading and writing tests.  The Civics Test includes 100 questions about government, history and integrated civics.  Applicants will be asked 10 questions.  The Civics test is an oral test.    One or more of the 10 civics questions may be about the current people holding different government offices.  Applicants will need to know the names of these people holding the current government offices.

Summer is a good time to practice and prepare for the U.S. Citizenship Test.

English Vocabulary for ELL Students

English Vocabulary for ELL Students 150 150 fisherhilladmin


Having a well developed vocabulary is the key to reading comprehension.  The more words a person knows, the better he/she will understand the text.  For English language learners (ELLs), vocabulary development is especially important. The average native English speaker enters kindergarten with a vocabulary of 5,000 words.  The average ELL kindergartner may know 5,000 words in his or her native language, but very few words in English.  Closing the gap can be a challenge for ELLs.  

Most ELL students quickly learn to communicate verbally with peers, but ELL students must also learn academic English.  There are many Spanish English cognates that can help students learn academic English. Cognates are words in different languages that derived from the same original word or root.  About 40% of all English words have similar cognates in Spanish. Family and familia, coast and costa, lion and léon are cognates.   

Research shows that it takes from 10 to 20 repetitions to make a word part of your vocabulary.  Using the new words as often as possible in everyday conversations or writing will increase a person’s vocabulary

Most vocabulary words are learned from context.  The more words you’re exposed to, the better vocabulary you will have.  When reading, it is often possible to figure out the meaning of a new word from the context of the sentence or paragraph.

With the use of iPads and eReaders, it is easy to look up unknown words.  You only need to tap on the word to pull up its definition.  

In our series English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker,students get the necessary practice to increase their English vocabulary.  Many Spanish English cognates are presented in the six workbook series.  

English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker is part of Fisher Hill’s English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults. It reinforces the vocabulary presented in the other three series of the program: English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish SpeakerEnglish Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker and English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker. Vocabulary knowledge increases reading comprehension, writing proficiency and speaking skills.

Fisher Hill’s English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults includes the above four workbook series. These series can be used in conjunction with each other.  How does the program work? English Reading and Spelling Book 1introduces students to reading in English. The English Reading and Spelling series uses a very systematic and explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language. Learning these sounds will help students read and spell. When English Reading and Spelling Book 1is completed, students, are ready to practice their beginning reading skills with English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1and their beginning writing skills with English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. The vocabulary presented in the first books of each series is reviewed in English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. The four series each with six workbooks, were written to be used together to give students a good foundation in English literally.  Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there are lots of pictures but the content is for older students. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There is an answer key at the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book. The six levels of the program with four workbooks at each level provides an excellent foundation in literacy for Spanish-speaking students. Each level of the program contains:

an English reading and spelling workbook

an English reading comprehension workbook

an English writing composition workbook and

an English vocabulary workbook.

English Writing Composition Workbook Series for Spanish Speakers

English Writing Composition Workbook Series for Spanish Speakers 150 150 fisherhilladmin

Fisher Hill has a six-workbook series call English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker.  This series was written to help Spanish speakers improve their English writing skills. The series uses a structured and systematic approach in teaching the different writing skills. English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1begins by teaching basic sentence structure, progresses to longer, more detailed sentences, and ends with students writing informative paragraphs. The final book in the series includes instruction and practice for writing compound and complex sentences. It also provides instruction and practice for writing essays. By the time students finish the six-book writing series, they will be able to compose informative, operational, and persuasive essays.  These six workbooks are full of writing activities and graphic organizers to help students improve their writing skills.

The workbooks are bilingual. The directions are in Spanish. The English translations for the Spanish directions are located at the back of each book. There is also an answer key at the back.  

As with all skills, writing takes practice, practice, and more practice to become proficient. The English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker series provides the practice and information Spanish speakers need to improve their English writing composition skills.

English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speakeris an excellent series to use in conjunction with English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speakerand English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speakerseries because the books in all three series use the same vocabulary. English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speakeris another six-book series that reinforces the vocabulary presented in the other three series.  By using the four series together, students get an excellent foundation in English literacy.

On our website, there are placement tests to determine which level a student should begin.  A student needs a score of 80% on the placement test 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 toolbar.  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.  The Sound Spelling Placement Tests are spelling tests to determine if a student has mastered the sounds for that level.  The teacher or volunteer gives the spelling test to the student. There are also student test forms under Teacher Resources.

Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for adults.  Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go!

English Reading and Spelling Workbooks for Spanish Speakers

English Reading and Spelling Workbooks for Spanish Speakers 150 150 fisherhilladmin

Fisher Hill has a six workbook series called English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker. This reading and spelling ESL workbook series is for Spanish-speaking teens and adults. The six workbooks were written to help Spanish speakers learn to read and spell in English.  The workbooks use Orton Gillingham methods to teach reading and spelling.  Orton Gillingham uses a very systematic, structured, explicit, and multisensory approach to teach the forty-four English speech sounds to read and spell. The workbooks provide practice with phonemic awareness, which is the ability to identify individual sounds and their order within words.  Learning the different speech sounds will help students read and spell in English fluently.  Eighty-five percent (85%) of words in English are phonetic.  The workbooks also present many of the commonly used words, called sight words, that are not phonetic.

The workbooks are bilingual since the word list for each lesson is presented in English and Spanish.  There are pictures to go with many of the words in the lists. Each lesson emphasizes one or two new speech sounds.  The vowel sounds in English are different than those in Spanish, but many of the English consonant sounds are similar to those in Spanish. Most consonants in English have one sound. Vowels can make several speech sounds.  Sometimes the letter “y” is used as a vowel. 

Words are made up of syllables (units of pronunciation).  Some words have one syllable, others have two or more syllables.  Every syllable must have a vowel sound.  If a word has three syllables then it has three vowel sounds.

Each lesson’s word list begins with words that contain the speech sound that is being emphasized in that lesson.  The last two words in the list are sight words.

Practicing English speech sounds, sight words, and their spellings will help Spanish speakers learn English reading and spelling.

In English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Books 4, 5, and 6, prefixes and suffixes are introduced and practiced.

On our website, there are placement tests to determine which level a student should begin.  A student needs a score of 80% on the placement test 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.  The Sound Spelling Placement Tests are spelling tests to determine if a student has mastered the sounds for that level.  The teacher or volunteer gives the spelling test to the student.  There are also student test forms under Teacher Resources.

There are other teacher resources for these reading and spelling ESL workbooks on our website.  There is a Scope and Sequence to help you use the series. There are Word and Sentence Practice pages and Word Chains to help with fluency.

Scope and Sequence

for the 

English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish SpeakerSeries

Before beginning English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1, practice the consonant sounds below with your students. Many of the consonant sounds are the same in English as in Spanish.  The letters: q, w, x and y have been left off this list because they are introduced and practiced in English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.

Bb says /b/ as in boy.

Cc says /c/ as in cat.

Dd says /d/ as in dog.

Ff says /f/ as in fun.

Gg says /g/ as in goat.

Hh says /h/ as in house.

Ss says /s/ as in sun.

Tt says /t/ as in top.

Vv says /v/ as in van.

Zz says /z/ as in zoo.

To help your students obtain automaticity with these sounds, you can use flash cards, graphic organizers or smart boards.  

Students need to know that both upper and lower case letters make the same sound.

This is a graphic organizer for the sound of letter s.  Students can work together to make graphic organizers for each of the consonants listed above. 

The teacher can use a smart board for the students to practice their letter sounds or students can write their own letters to practice the letter sounds. From left to right, students read the sounds.

Structured Literacy

Fisher Hill’s English Literacy Program is soon going to be available on line.  The twenty-four workbooks in the program will be available to be downloaded from our website at www.Fisher-Hill.com.  Fisher Hill’s English Literacy Program is designed for Spanish speakers who want to learn to read, spell and write in English. Spanish speakers from around the world will be able to use Fisher Hill’s structured literacy program to become literate in English.

Structured literacy uses systematic and explicit methods to teach decoding and word identification. Structured literacy is beneficial to all students but especially to students who have had difficulty learning to read and spell.  

Structured literacy teaches phonology, sound-symbol, syllables, morphology, syntax and semantics. Phonology is the study of the sound structure in spoken words. This includes phonemic awarenes which is the ability to distinguish, segment, blend and manipulate sounds in words.

Structured literacy teaches sound-symbol association which is the alphabetic principle: to associate sounds with letters.

Structured literacy teaches syllables. Knowing the six syllable types helps students associate vowel spellings with vowel sounds.  Syllable division rules help students to divide and decode unfamiliar words, especially longer words.

tructured literacy teaches syllables. Knowing the six syllable types helps students associate vowel spellings with vowel sounds.  Syllable division rules help students to divide and decode unfamiliar words, especially longer words.

Structured literacy teaches morphology which is the study of  the meanings of the smallest units of language.  Studying base words and affixes help students decode and understand the meanings of complex words.

Structured literacy teaches syntax which is the principles that dictate the sequence and function of words in sentences. This includes grammar, sentence structure and the mechanics of language (spelling, captalization, punctuation).

Structure literacy ESL workbooks for Spanish-speaking Bilingual teens and adults teaches, semantics which is concerned with meaning.  This includes comprehension of written language. 

Structured literacy uses systematic, cumulative, explicit and diagnostic priniciples to teach reading and spelling. This approach is very effective to all students, especially those who have difficulty learning to read and spell.

Students like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for older students and adults.  Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.

Reading Comprehension Ebooks from Fisher Hill

Reading Comprehension Ebooks from Fisher Hill 150 150 fisherhilladmin

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.
