Missing Math Mystery

They returned to their school,
8-weeks vacation,

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

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 first-grader pleaded,
He remembered the thing,
All school students needed...
Ms. Morris, please,
I want to learn
Can you please show us how,
math makes me laugh...
Ms. Morris then looked,
With an oh-so-shocked look,
Checked all her plans,
She'd planned in her plan book,
math that she wrote,
That's what's been missing,
math is what students,
Have all been wish-wishing...
They'd forgotten their
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...
MATH returned,
On a special
MATH day,
And teachers and students,
All screamed out hooray!
