English Literacy for Spanish Speakers, Step 2

 

Fisher Hill has an excellent English Literacy Program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults.

 In my last blog, I talked about The First Step in the program which is to use English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. This post is called English Literacy for Spanish Speakers, Step 2.

English Literacy for Spanish Speakers, Step 2

 

The Second Step is to use English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 or English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. It depends on what you want to practice: reading or writing. In this blog I will talk about English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 and in the next blog I will talk about English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1.

The purpose of English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 is to help Spanish speakers improve their English reading comprehension skills. Reading comprehension is the ability to draw meaning from written words. This is an excellent book to use after finishing English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 because both books use words with the same speech sounds and high frequency words.

This book is made up of twenty lessons. Lessons include practice with fluency, vocabulary, visualization, comprehension, phonology and phonics. This book is bilingual. The directions are in Spanish. The English translations for the Spanish directions are located at the back of the book. 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 how to talk. Learning to read can be very difficult for some people but with practice, most everyone can learn how to read.
