  • Children’s Stories

  • What did you notice?

  • As the “audience” of this scene, what did you think you were supposed to notice?

  • What did you miss as a result?

  • How is the ladder operating in this situation?

  • Example situations we might notice:

  • Johnny gets called to the office over the intercom.

  • Janey wins the spelling bee.

  • Jasper chooses to stay inside rather than go out to play baseball.

  • Jasmine grabs a pencil away from Judy.

The teacher climbs the ladder and with each step asks the next question:

What meaning might we add?

What belief might we now have?

What action might we take based on that belief?

How does it feel at the top of the ladder? How certain is the top?
