|We work hard picking apples a few days before we come to school.|
Yes, we have one apple tree. It's a small tree and doesn't grow apples yet. We have friends and neighbors who have apple trees and they are so generous that they share their apples with us so we can bring them to your school!
Have you ever picked apples from a tree?
|Everyone in our family helps pick apples!|
|We filled a lot of buckets with apples!|
|We pack the truck the night before we head to school.|
It's faster if we are all loading than if I have to load it all myself.
|Mr. Stewart helped us grind the apples to make cider.|
So did the custodian.
He used to have Cider Day in his home town when he was growing up!
|After we grind the apples up,|
we put them in the press and squeeze the cider out of them.
|We made enough cider for everyone to have a taste!|
|I hope you enjoyed our visit!|
|Look how big the ducklings are getting!|
|The chicks are growing, too!|
|Dot is growing beautiful speckled feathers.|
