I would like to thank all the participants of this project and welcome their feedback.
The students really enjoyed doing these poems and looking for
words to describe the look and feel of the apples. Their poems were
written on the shapes of an apple, which they coloured in and which
will be put up in the classroom for display. They would like to thank Mrs. Enid Lacob for her help in this project.

Constantia Primary School, Cape Town, South Africa
St. Hubert School is in the community of Huntington Hills Calgary
Alberta Canada. We have approximately 300 students at our school and we
have kindergarten to grade 6. Our Principal is Mr. R. Grossi and our
teacher is Mrs. Melina Akins. We are in grade two and most students are
seven years old. Some students are six years old. We love apples and
liked writing these poems.
Thank you so much for providing an opportunity for us to share our poetry
and to network with other 2nd grade classes. We enjoyed writing our poems
and learning about apples. On Monday, a father who is a professional chef,
will be directing a cooking activity with the children. We will be making
Ten Apple Pie with 10 different varieties of apples!

Saint Michael is a grade pre-k through 8 Lutheran school in Fort Myers, Florida. We were very excited to be a part of the Apples Poetry Page. The students enjoyed sharing their poems with the class and the school and parents have had fun looking them up on the internet. We even received e-mail from an alumni of Saint Michael who now lives in Ohio. She was looking for poetry ideas on the internet, came across the Apples site and much to her surprise - she found her school. That was very exciting for us all. It is amazing how small the world becomes on the internet. Thank you for including us in your project!
"An Apple a Day" is a colorful, music enhanced web page for 2nd
grade poetry that has made writing poetry exciting for the second grade
students at Willard Elementary school in Concord, MA. Writing is
always more fun when the author knows that there is an audience to read
and appreciate his/her writing. Susan Silverman has made this possible
by creating a web page that children from all over the world can
display their writing in. How thrilled our students will be when their
family and friends near and far can read and appreciate what they have
written. A positive experience like this will encourage our students
to enjoy writing well into the future . Thank you Susan!
Laura Larsson, Technology Supervisor, Willard Elementary School,
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful project. We truly
enjoyed writing our poems. We drew pictures for our poems and scanned them
into the computer. Afterwards, our teacher put our poems and illustrations
together. We created an apple-shaped Big Book which we are allowed to bring
home and share with our family. Our family has a chance to make comments in
the back of the book for us all to enjoy!

Tri Valley Elementary School, Grahamsville, New York
I want to thank you for creating this wonderful site and allowing my children
to see their work as well as those of other second graders around the world.
Taylor Elementary School is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Most of
the children here have no idea how far reaching the Internet is and this
helped them understand it a little better. Thank you Susan for all your
patience and time with us.

We are thrilled to be participants in the Apple a Day Project. Thanks,
Susan, for giving our second grade students the opportunity to share our
apple poetry and artwork with the world. I'm very pleased with our page
and plan to show it proudly to our parents, community and local Board of
