Here is my last suggestion for a 2017 New Year’s resolution, Eat Healthy.
Eat healthy by eating more whole foods. Whole foods are foods that have not been processed or refined and are free from additives or other artificial substances. This would include: fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, lean protein and whole grains.
Here are some examples of whole foods from WebMD:
- Whole grains instead of refined grains
- Fruits, vegetables, and beans instead of supplements to provide the fiber and vitamins they contain.
- A skinless chicken breast cooked with healthful ingredients instead of chicken nuggets processed with added fats, flavorings, and preservatives.
- A baked potato with chopped green onions and light sour cream instead of a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips.
- Fresh berries with breakfast instead of raspberry toaster pastries or breakfast
A blueberry smoothie made with blueberries, yogurt, and a frozen banana instead of a blue-colored slushy or icee.
Learning something new is also a good New Year’s Resolution. Visit our website at www.Fisher-Hill.com to learn more about our workbooks for Spanish-speaking teens and adults who want to learn English.
Fisher Hill has a series called English for the Spanish Speaker. This is a four 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.
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!
