Tell students that they can determine the moral of a story by paying attention to what the characters do and what happens as a result of their actions. They can also decide if the character made a good or bad decision. Show students the popular nursery rhyme, “Humpty Dumpty.” Can they find a moral? Next, read “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Ask students what happened to the boy when he finally saw the real wolf? Why did no one come to help him? Have students determine the moral. What do they think would have happened if the boy had listened to his parents? After this, students will read the sentences and decide if the character made a good or bad choice. For example, when the parents told the boy not to lie, that was a good choice. Ask students what they would have done differently if they were in the boy’s shoes.
