Fisher Hill has a six easy to use workbooks to help students improve their writing skills. The series uses a structured and systematic approach in teaching the different writing skills. Book 1 begins 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 geared toward Spanish speaking students, but all students can greatly benefit from these workbooks. Click on the following link to view Sample Pages from each book.

The Writing Composition workbooks are part of Fisher Hill’s Structured Literacy Program. The series has six levels. Each level has four workbooks:
Reading and Spelling
The first book to use at each level is the Reading and Spelling workbook. The program uses a very systematic, explicit approach to teaching the forty-four English speech sounds. After completing the English Reading and Spelling Book 1, students are ready to practice reading by using the English Reading Comprehension Book 1 or writing by using the English Writing Composition Book 1. The English Vocabulary Book 1 reviews the vocabulary presented at Level 1. After completing the six levels, students will have an excellent foundation in English literacy. https://fisher-hill.com/structured-literacy-program/
