Have you seen a weather vane? It shows which way is north, so that we know which way the wind is blowing. Do you know which way is south and east and west? Can you point to north?
Series editor and author of the Red Rocket reading program, Pam Holden has more than 30 years specialist experience in literacy. As a Reading Recovery teacher she has worked one-to-one with hundreds of children struggling with literacy. Pam's pupils have also included those approaching English as a second language, and children who are advanced and require extension. This experience has given the author a rare insight into the literacy process and has enabled her to identify many key elements that consistently block children's progress.
