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.

The workbooks I’ve written use a very structured, systematic, explicit approach to teach the English speech sounds to read and spell.  The series called English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker helps Spanish speakers improve their English reading comprehension skills. Each workbook has twenty lessons and there are six workbooks in the series.

For the first three workbooks:

 Each lesson begins with a vocabulary page.

 The next page in the lesson is a practice page for the new vocabulary words.

 The third page in the lesson is a visualization page.

 The fourth page in the lesson is a story to practice fluency.

 The fifth page in the lesson is a comprehension page for the story.

 The sixth page in the lesson is a reading practice page.

 The last page in the lesson is the Answer Key.

For the last three workbooks:

Each lesson begins with a vocabulary page.

 The next page in the lesson is a practice page for the new vocabulary words.

 The third page in the lesson is a story.

 The fourth page in the lesson is a comprehension page for the story.

 The fifth and sixth pages in the lesson are reading practice pages.

 The last page in the lesson is the Answer Key.

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 a very difficult for some people, but with practice, most everyone can learn how to read.

The workbooks I’ve written use a very structured, systematic, explicit approach to teach the English speech sounds to read and spell.  The series called English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker uses phonics, phonemic awareness and other phonological skills to teach reading and spelling. This series has six workbooks.  Each workbook has twenty lessons.

Each lesson begins with a word list that includes words with the targeted sound for that lesson. Many of these words can also be used as vocabulary words.

The next page in the lesson works with high frequency words. These words are often misspelled so they are presented and practiced repeatedly throughout the book.

The third page in the lesson is a fill in the blank page so students can practice using the words from the word list from the first page of the lesson and the high frequency words from the second page of the lesson. There are pictures from the first page of the lesson at the end of some of the fill in the blank sentences since many sentences could have more than one answer. Students use the pictures at the end of the sentence to know which word from the word list to use.

The fourth page of the lesson practices spelling, grammar, vocabulary or writing.

The fifth page of the lesson is a word search, crossword puzzle or jumble

The last page of the lesson is an answer key.

How to use the workbooks:

When I was teaching reading and spelling, I spent two days on each new sound. I would begin the lesson by flashing sound spelling cards with the consonants and a card with the new sound. I would then dictate five words from the word list, five words from previous word lists (from the book) and two or three high frequency words. The students would write the words on their whiteboards and then read and spell the words back to me. The dialogue I used was:

Teacher: “Write the word cat.” (Students write the word.) “What word did you write?”

Students: cat

Teacher: “How do you spell cat?”

Students: “c-a-t”

I did this for each word and then I would dictate two sentences.  These sentences can come from page 2 of each lesson. This type of multisensory practices helps students to learn and remember the sounds.

a Reading and Spelling workbook

a Reading Comprehension workbook

a Writing Composition workbook

and a Vocabulary workbook

Fisher Hill Store - Products

Each level begins with the English Reading and Spelling workbook.  The Vocabulary workbook reinforces the new words learned at each level. Vocabulary is key for reading comprehension.  Multiple encounters of a new word is required before a word is really known.  Repeated exposure to a word in a variety of contexts can add dimension to what is known about the word.  “The more opportunities students have to think about and use the words they are learning, the more elaborate their mental repesentations of the words will be.” (Bringing Words to Life by Isabel Beck.)  Fisher Hill’s vocabulary workbooks provide this necessary practice for learning new words at each of the six levels in the Fisher Hill’s English Literacy Program for Spanish-speaking teens and adults.  There are many pictures and graphic organizers to help students remember and understand the new vocaublary words.

Graphic organizers are visual representations or frames used to organize information. Graphic organizers are tools that can be used to visualize and organize information. They can help students see the relationships between ideas; and more easily understand, remember and apply information.  Fisher Hill’s English Vocabulary for the Spanish-Speaker workbooks are full of graphic organizers to help students learn vocabulary.
