Missing Math Mystery It was back to school,After 8weeks vacation, I don't know the date, The time or location, But when students returned, After summer's sweet fun, Something was missing, Like 1 minus 1... Just 1 subject, But which one was gone? They couldn't remember, It had been too, too long... They studied the schedule, Tried to remember, They knew they had English Like they did last September... They still had science, And gym class, and art, Which subject was missing? Which piece of the part? There was music, and reading, And of course, social studies, There was lunch and fine arts, Recess with buddies... Then one cloudy day, A first grader pleaded, He remembered the thing, All students needed... Ms. Morris, please, I want to learn math, I want to learn now, 'Cause math makes me laugh... Ms. Morris looked, With an ohsoshocked look, Checked all her plans Then wrote in her book, It's math she wrote, That's what's been missing, For math is what students, Have all been wishwishing... They'd forgotten math, And now they'd been caught, And finally, finally, They'd found what they sought... Because one first grader, Who loved math a lot, Remembered that numbers, Just hit the spot... So MATH returned, On a special MATH day, And teachers and students, All screamed hooray!!
