Critical Thinking and Creative Writing with Jacob's Ladder Jacob's Ladder is a supplemental reading program that implements targeted readings from short stories, poetry, and nonfiction sources. Students engage in an inquiry process that moves from lower to higher-order thinking skills. Starting with basic literary understandings, students learn to critically analyze texts by determining implications and consequences, generalizations, main ideas and/or creative synthesis. Our small group reading activities will be engaging and fun while helping to enhance your child's reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. Students will "climb" each ladder together and learn to be more confident readers and critical thinkers along the way! Students will also tap into their creative writing styles by writing stories that pair up with our Jacob's Ladder texts. Students will have a choice of writing short stories, poetry, picture books, or informational texts. We will also work on our social skills and get to know one another each day during our routine morning meetings!
