HS ELL- Kindergarten equivalent- HELP!

I have a new HS student this year who hasn't been in school for the last 2 years. His native language is Spanish and can fluently read and write in Spanish as well. I have him most of the day; however, one of his classes is an ELL Study Skills with me. This was a last minute decision made by the counselor and principal. I haven't had time to create a curriculum and I don't necessarily want to just fill the time with random activities learning letters/numbers, I would like some kind of structure.

Any ideas about a text that would be a good choice for him. He is in sophomore classes, but can't understand a thing. He needs to work on basics: letter sounds, numbers greater than 10, common phrases used throughout the school/life. The list goes on. Any suggestions welcome!! Thanks!

We use Shining Star for middle schoolers. The red book--I think it's Level A--is the one for newcomers. I don't teach HS, but I think it would probably be appropriate for that age as well.

Work on oral vocabulary first

then move into literacy (even though everyone who works with him wants him to read NOW).

You might check out Making Content Comprehensible for English Language Learners.
Here's a great summary of the thick book:

you might also check the website colorincolorado--support for Spanish first language students.

I am an ESL elementary teacher. A "text" that I have used with much success is the Newcomer Phonics book - there is an elementary level and an older level text. It teaches phonics/vocab/phrases, etc. in a structured and straightforward manner. Also, for ways to get talking, I love the high-interest, low level books I found on Amazon. One is Very Easy True Stories.
