Please Take the Coronavirus Seriously! 150 150 hill-fisher

Yes, the grocery stores are packed, and the shelves are bare. People are stocking up. Yesterday when I went to Pacific City, a shopping, dining and entertainment center, there was a line of cars to get into the underground parking.  The restaurants were full.  Then this morning when I was at dog beach walking with friends, one friend had been to a bar the previous day.  We need to take the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.  We need to take this virus seriously by stop going to restaurants, bars and other nonessential public places.

What can you do while you’re staying home?  You can download or order a workbook from Fisher Hill publishers to improve language skills. We have workbooks for Spanish speaking teens and adults to learn English and we have workbooks to help English speakers learn Spanish.

Fisher Hill’s English for the Spanish Speaker series has four workbooks and each workbook has eight lessons. https://www.fisher-hill.com/english-series-to-english-for-the-spanish-speaker/  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.

English Literacy Workbooks for Spanish-Speaking Teens and Adults | ESL Workbooks

Fisher Hill’s Spanish Made Fun and Easy series has two workbooks and each workbook has twelve lessons. https://www.fisher-hill.com/product-category/spanish-category/ Each lesson deals with a common theme, i.e., Breakfast, Telling Time, Going to the Doctor, etc.  At the end of the books are two dictionaries:  Spanish-English and English-Spanish.

Each lesson is divided into eight parts.  First, there is a vocabulary list.  Beginning Spanish is included as well as the vocabulary of the particular theme.  The definite article is placed in front of each Spanish noun on the list, letting the student know whether it is a feminine or masculine noun.  Then there is a conversation in order to use the vocabulary in a common situation.  Next is a story related to the theme which reinforces the vocabulary and the conversation.  The fourth page of each lesson is an exercise that requires choosing a word from the vocabulary list and then writing it in a sentence that is missing that word.  The next three pages are a variety of activity pages.  At the end of each lesson are the answers to the exercises.

Thank you from Fisher Hill

Thank you from Fisher Hill 150 150 hill-fisher

Fisher Hill wants to thank all the teachers, volunteers, parents, tutors, grandparents who help  children every day with schoolwork.

As a teacher, I had wonderful parent and grandparent volunteers in my classroom.  As a kindergarten teacher with 30 children, you can imagine how I appreciated their help.  With their help, the classroom ran smoothly, and children received individual help.

On Honorary Service night, I would honor the volunteers and let everyone there know how much work they did:  organizing homework packets, organizing schoolwork for the day, listening to children read, helping individual students with math, and the list goes on.  After listing all the wonderful things, the volunteers did, I would say “And you’re probably wondering what I do all day?”  I would continue with, “Don’t worry, there’s plenty of work for everyone!!”

Kathy Fisher is the owner of Fisher Hill and the author of the workbooks. She taught  for 27 years. Seventeen of those years were in kindergarten and first grade classrooms. She is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and has two boys who had difficulty learning to read.  One son graduated with a Ph.D. in Chemistry and the other son dropped out of high school, passed the high school proficiency test, and worked at Twitter before he was twenty years old making more money than his mother who had a master’s degree in Education.  Needless to say, the boys school experiences at times were not a joyful affair especially with the younger one who finally dropped out of school when he was sixteen.

School can be extremely difficult for children who have a hard time learning to read.  As a teacher, I loved teaching reading because I knew what to do.  I joined IDA when my boys had difficulty learning to read. This reading difficulty came as a shock to me because I had read to them since they were babies. They had gone to Mommy and Me classes, story time at the library, and they had plenty of books at home.  IDA taught me how to teach reading.  They taught me about Orton-Gillingham.  I knew what to do.  I did not depend on the school’s textbooks to teach reading.

Fisher Hill’s literacy workbooks use a structured literacy approach.  All the books are based on Orton-Gillingham practices.  Most of Fisher Hill’s workbooks are for Spanish-speaking teens and adults to learn to read, spell and write in English.

Students like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, plenty of pictures but the content is for older students. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go!

The workbooks are appropriate for using with an entire class or with individual students. The directions are in Spanish with English translations at the end of the workbook.

We at Fisher Hill wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
