Apples Aren't Always Red
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "What color are apples?" the teacher asked her class of fourteen boys and girls.
 
2     Everyone but Sarah said, "Red."
 
3     The teacher looked at Sarah and asked "Why didn't you say red like the other students?"
 
4     "I didn't say red because I have seen apples that aren't red," Sarah answered.
 
5     The teacher asked Sarah to come to the board and write what other colors of apples she had seen.
 
6     Sarah walked to the right side of the board. She turned around and looked at the students. The marker was in her right hand. She always used her right hand to write.
 
7     The first color she wrote was green. "My mother made a pie of Granny Smith apples. Those apples were green," she told the class.
 
8     "Very good," said the teacher.
