Missing Math Mystery They returned to their school,After 8weeks vacation, I don't know the date, The time or location, But when students walked in, After summer's sweet fun, Something was missing, Like 1 minus 1... Which was the subject? Which topic 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 their 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, And recess with buddies... Then one cloudy day, A firstgrader pleaded, He remembered the thing, All school students needed... Ms. Morris, please, I want to learn math, Can you please show us how, 'Cause math makes me laugh... Ms. Morris then looked, With an ohsoshocked look, Checked all her plans, She'd planned in her plan book, It's math that she wrote, That's what's been missing, For math is what students, Have all been wishwishing... They'd forgotten their math, And now they'd been caught, And finally, finally, They'd found what they sought... Because a frustrated 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 out hooray!
