Fisher Hill has six workbooks called English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker. https://www.fisher-hill.com/product-category/comprehension/ The English Reading Comprehension 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. These workbooks are geared toward Spanish speakers but students of any language can greatly benefit from these books.
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.

The English Reading Comprehension workbooks are part of Fisher Hill’s Structured Literacy Program. The Structured Literacy Program has six levels. On our website, there are placement tests to determine on which level a student should begin the Structured Literacy Program. 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 1, then the student needs to begin with Level 1 with English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. Each level begins with the Reading and Spelling workbook. Each level has four workbooks:
Reading and Spelling
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.
