1st grade students and I read the story, “After the Fall” by Dan Santat.  The author writes a spin off of the classic nursery rhyme, “Humpty Dumpty.” 

Dan Santat tells us how Humpty dealt with life after his famous fall.  Humpty ends up learning to get back up no matter how worried or scared he might be sometimes in life, and continues to persevere. 

After our book discussion, each student sequenced the key events in the story to show understanding of the lesson in this story.
