Basketball Math Poem

swish

basketball cartoon
Score by 2,
Score by 1,
Sometimes 3,
Shoot and run!
Has 1 ball,
Has 2 nets,
Isn’t tennis,
Has no sets…
Has a foul,
But not baseball,
10 players play,
That’s not all…
Quarters?
4!
Minutes?
12!
Shoes on court,
Squeal and delve…
Minutes pass,
48!
Swish for 3,
Doing Great!!!
Orange ball,
Pumpkin hued,
Bounced around,
Beat and bruised,
Jump shot, lay-up,
From downtown!
Basketball?
Yeah, I’m down!
