Fisher Hill’s English Structured Literacy Program for Spanish speaking teens and adults has six levels. Each level has four workbooks: https://www.fisher-hill.com/structured-literacy-program/
Reading and Spelling
Each level begings with the English Reading and Spelling workbook. https://www.fisher-hill.com/product/english-reading-and-spelling-for-the-spanish-speaker-book-1/The workbooks use Orton Gillingham methods to teach reading and spelling. Orton Gillingham uses a very systematic, structured, explicit, and multisensory approach to teach the English speech sounds to read and spell. The Reading and Spelling workbooks provide practice with phonemic awareness, which is the ability to identify individual sounds and their order within words. Learning the different speech sounds will help students read and spell in English. Eighty-five percent (85%) of words in English are phonetic. The workbooks also present many of the commonly used words, called sight words, that are not phonetic.
After completing the Reading and Spelling workbook, students are ready to practice reading by using the Reading Comprehension workbook https://www.fisher-hill.com/product-category/comprehension/ or writing by using the Writing Composition workbook https://www.fisher-hill.com/product-category/composition/ . The Vocabulary workbook reviews the vocabulary at each level. https://www.fisher-hill.com/product/english-vocabulary-for-the-spanish-speaker-book-1/

Teens and adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for older students. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book. Fisher Hill’s Structured Literacy workbooks are excellent for any student who needs to learn to read, spell and write in English.
