## Giant Green Giraffe

### adding doubles 10 + 10

A giant, goofy, green giraffe,
Had a 10-foot neck, don’t laugh!
Liked to eat sweet chocolate chips,
Melt them on his purple lips…
Once he saw a chocolate pie,
Floating high up in the sky…

20-feet above the ground,
Floating as it made no sound!
Truly, really wanna’ chew,
Chocolate pie with chocolate goo!
Gotta reach, but no can do,
Need that pie,
Thought it through…
Took all day,
Thought some more,
It was solved,
Brain was sore!
10-foot neck stretched 10-more feet,
This was not an easy feat!
10 + 10,
Gave him 20,
Hurt his neck,
Wasn’t funny…
But that pie,
Oh-so-sweet,
Chocolate pie,
He got to eat…

#### 10 + 10 = 20
