The American Flag
Facing our symbol of freedom
With our heart in hand
Thirteen stripes, fifty stars
United we stand.
From one coast to the other
A sign that we are free
Our American flag
Unites you and me.

Baking Smells
When I smell baking.
I get up and start making.
Things in bowls and things in pots.
So when I cook.
The stove gets hot.
I love baking smells a lot!

Math Facts
Oh, there are so many math facts,
My brain is taxed.
At first for a hundred facts, the minutes were five,
I didn't think I'd stay alive.
Then when the minutes were lowered to four,
I almost walked out the door!
Next came three,
I fell to my knees.
But now with practice, I've passed my math fact tests.
And I can join the sleep over with all the rest!
