# Mr. R.’s World of Math

Well I got a new dog,
She loves to eat foods,
So she lives in the kitchen
She takes all the food,
From each closet and drawer,
She eats all that food,
But she always wants more!
My parents were angry,
And my brother was too,
She ate up his homework,
And then ate up his shoe!
She thinks every new thing,
Truly tastes great…

CHORUS
Finding sums of different numbers
She doesn’t bark or bite,
She stays up every night,
Makes her feel alright!

She ate sister’s breakfast,
She ate momma’s chair,
She ate brother’s baseball,
She started at 4 pounds,
The sum of her dog pounds?
Was greater than 4.
To her 4 pounds that day,
How many dog pounds,

6 pounds is small!
She screamed with dismay,
To her weight the next day,
To gain those 3 pounds?
A tree and a yo-yo,
A toy train that made sounds!
But not as heavy as me,
How many pounds
Is 6 pounds plus 3?

I yelled 9’s quite enough!
Much more doggy weight gain,
She was growing galore!
She got stuck in the door,
To gain those 10 pounds?
She ate my pajamas,
And my mother’s nightgowns!
Now here’s a big challenge,
Let’s count them again,
What’s the big sum,
Of a 9 and a 10?

19 dog pounds,
She looked like a hog,
Couldn’t walk, or go swimming,
Or chase balls, or jog!!
