Fisher Hill’s New Ebook

 

Fisher Hill has a new ebook available on its webpage.  It’s English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. The workbook is also available in hardcopy but now you can download it and have it the same day.  No hassle with shipping and waiting for the book to arrive.

This workbook was written to help Spanish-speaking students to read and spell.  The workbook uses Orton-Gillingham principles to teach reading and spelling.  The Orton-Gillingham approach uses structured, explicit, systematic and multisensory procedures in teaching the forty-four speech sounds.

Reading and Spelling Book 1covers the five short vowel sounds, two long vowel sounds and beginning blends.  There are twenty lessons in Book 1.  Each lesson has five to six pages.

Each lesson beginswith a word list that includes words with the targeted sound for that lesson. Many of these words can also be used as vocabulary words.

The next pagein the lesson works with developing comprehension skills.

The third pagein the lesson is a fill in the blank page so students can practice using the words from the word list from the first page of the lesson and the high frequency words from the second page of the lesson.  There are pictures from the first page of the lesson at the end of some of the fill in the blank sentences since many sentences could have more than one answer.  Students use the pictures at the end of the sentence to know which word from the word list to use.

The fourth pageof the lesson practices spelling, grammar, vocabulary or a writing activity.

The last pageof the lesson ends with a Word Search of the targeted and high frequency words from the lesson.

Students including adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, and the content is for adults.  Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go!

Fisher Hill has many workbooks for Spanish Speaking students.  These workbooks are appropriate for an entire class or for one or two individual students.  Often a teacher will have only one or two non-English speaking latino students who need to learn English.  These workbooks are excellent for them or an entire class.

In this blog, I will talk about our English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speakers Series.  It consists of six workbooks to teach English reading and spelling to Spanish speakers. The workbooks use the Orton Gillingham approach to teach reading and spelling.  The Orton Gillingham approach is a very systematic, explicit, structured approach to teach the forty-four English speech sounds to read and spell. Eighty-five percent (85%) of words in English are phonetic.  The workbooks also present many of the commonly used words, called sight or high frequency words, that do not follow spelling expectations.

This book is 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. Each lesson’s word list begins with words that contain the speech sound that is being emphasized in that lesson. The last word or 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. Knowing the spelling of the English speech sounds will help students with their fluency in reading.  Fluency is important for reading comprehension.

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? 150 150 fisherhilladmin

¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?

 

Fisher Hill has an excellent series for English speakers to learn Spanish. The series is called Spanish Made Fun and Easy and consists of two workbooks. There are twelve lessons in each book.  Each lesson deals with a common theme, i.e., Breakfast, Telling Time, Shopping, Sports, etc. At the end of the book are two dictionaries:  Spanish-English and English-Spanish.

Each lesson is divided into eight parts.  First, there is a vocabulary list.  Beginning Spanish is included as well as the vocabulary of the particular theme.  The definite article is placed in front of each Spanish noun on the list, letting the student know whether it is a feminine or masculine noun.  Then there is a conversation in order to use the vocabulary in a common situation.  Next is a story related to the theme which reinforces the vocabulary and the conversation. The fourth page of each lesson is an exercise that requires choosing a word from the vocabulary list and then writing it in a sentence that is missing that word.  The next three pages are a variety of activity pages.  At the end of each lesson are the answers to the exercises.

It is recommended that the student do one lesson per week but the you can go through the book more rapidly if you so desires.  The speed at which a student learns Spanish depends on the student.  It would be useful to read the conversation and story out loud to gain smoothness.

Also, you should listen to television in Spanish.  In the beginning the you should listen to ads, cartoons, and news.  It is very important to listen to and speak with Spanish speakers.  This will help the student greatly.  He or she will be able to practice Spanish and also improve his or her accent.  No one is ever going to learn Spanish without practice.  Children learn quickly to speak another language.  The reason for this is that most children are not bothered by the mistakes they make in speaking.  It is important to take advantage of every opportunity to speak.

These are fun workbooks to use to brush up on your Spanish or to begin learning Spanish. Summer isn’t over yet! Take the workbook to the beach or work on it in your backyard. Summer can be a good time to work on learning a second language.

CDs to Learn English

 

This week while I was driving in the car, I listened to Fisher Hill’s CDs to learn English . They are great CDs! There are four CDs to go along with the four workbooks called English for the Spanish Speaker. Like the workbooks, each CD has eight lessons. The CDs cover the vocabulary list, conversation and story for each lesson. This way the listener can hear the pronunciation for the words. There is also opportunity to repeat the English. The CDs for workbooks 1 and 2 cover everyday themes. The CDs for workbooks 3 and 4 have four lessons each with everyday themes and four lessons each of history or government themes. These CDs are a great way to improve English and learn about U.S. history and government. The CDS are great for people who are working on becoming a U.S. citizen. A person can listen to the CDs over and over again to learn the pronunciation of the English.

Below are the lessons for each workbook and CD.

Never Too Old!

Never Too Old! 150 150 fisherhilladmin

Never Too Old!

 

This past week, friends and I climbed Mt Baldy in California. There were four of us:  two were 73 years old, one was 70 and I was the baby at 65.  We had no problems. Older people are doing all kinds of things they enjoy.  Granted if you have your health, you are blessed.

Fisher Hill’s books are geared toward older students. Older students like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, and the content is for older students.  Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go!

English for the Spanish Speaker is afour workbook series.  Each book in the series has eight lessons.  In Books 1 and 2, the lessons are about every day activities. In Books 3 and 4, four lessons are about every day activities and the other four are about United States history or government.  The print in the workbooks is large.  The reading level in Book 1 is at the first and second grade level.  The books get progressively more difficult.  The reading level for Book 4 is at the fourth grade reading level.  Each lesson begins with a vocabulary list, then a conversation, story, activity pages, and finally an answer key. The lessons are bilingual with the word lists, conversations, and stories presented in Spanish and English.  The directions for the activity pages are in Spanish but the activities are in English.  There are two dictionaries at the back of each workbook: a Spanish dictionary and an English dictionary. There is a CD available for each workbook so the student can listen to the vocabulary lists, conversations and stories in English.

English for the Spanish Speaker

Fisher Hill also has an excellent English literacy program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn how to read and write in English.  How does our literacy program work?  We have four different series in our literacy program.  Each series has six volumes.  Each volume is a workbook.  These four series can be used in conjunction with each other.  The very first book to use would be English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.  This series introduces students to reading in English.  The series uses a very systematic, explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language.  After completing English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish SpeakerBook 1, students are ready to practice their beginning reading skills by using English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.  They can also begin practicing writing by using English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.  English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 reviews the vocabulary presented in English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish SpeakerBook 1.  After completing the Book Ones in the series, students can begin the Book Twos. The four series, each with six workbooks, were written to be used together.  By using the four series together, students get a good foundation in English literacy.
