Get That Corn! — Cycle 77+

Summary:

Tiff gets to work harvesting the corn for Aunt Gale.  She plucks a few cobs and realizes that this could take a long time. She gets an idea that will help her harvest the corn much faster:  she puts a large fan on one side of the field and a large basket on the other. The fan blows all of the corn off of the stalks right into the basket. Aunt Gale is impressed that Tiff harvested so much corn so quickly.

Full Text:

Tiff has a job. She must get that corn.

She grabs the corn and sets it in her basket.

Tiff said, "Hmm. Can I do this faster?"

She got a big fan and set it near the field.

She got a big basket and set it over here.

The fan makes so much wind.  

The corn shot over the field.

The corn lands in the basket.

Tiff lifted the basket in the truck.

Aunt Gale said, "Whoa!" Tiff grinned.
