Missing Math Mystery

It was back to school,
8-weeks vacation,

I don't know the date,
The time or location,
But when students returned,
After summer's sweet fun,
Something was missing,
1 minus 1...
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
Like they did last September...
They still had

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
I want to learn now,
math makes me laugh...
Ms. Morris looked,
With an oh-so-shocked look,
Checked all her plans
Then wrote in her book,
math she wrote,
That's what's been missing,
math is what students,
Have all been wish-wishing...
They'd forgotten
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...
MATH returned,
On a special
MATH day,
And teachers and students,
All screamed hooray!!
