The Number Thief 12X- New Years
(a math story in rhyme! This one lets students practice their 12's multiplication facts!)


It was right about midnight,
One cold New Year’s Eve,
And I have a short story,
You might not believe,
I was home all alone,
To watch Time Square’s ball,
new year's ball 2012
My parents were gone,
They’d left for the mall…
They’d taken my turtle,
cartoon turtle
And sweet sister Sue,
New Year’s Eve sales,
They couldn’t poo-poo!
The last chance to shop in 2011,
They’d buy
84 gifts,
Which is
12 x
