Multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting

with regrouping,

All these computations and justifications,

 are oh SO confusing!

But despite the challenges, determined I am,

for conquer I MUST,

I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!

Recounts, journals, letters, stories and procedures,

Persuading, listing, comparing and contrasting,

My brain and my hands are extremely exhausted!

But it’s onward and upward I must forge on,

I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!

Retelling, relating, reflecting and inferring,

text features, point of views, character traits and APE,

Concepts upon concepts I must comprehend,

Sometimes I really just want to escape!

But to these feeling, I’ve promised myself to never succumb!

I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!

Gross motor and fine motor,

Dribbling, passing, skipping and throwing,

Have left me panting and sweating and slightly unbalanced.

After years of practising, I no longer wobble and I’m almost totally stable!

And that is why,

I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!

When tasks are difficult and challenges overwhelming,

with great determination let us declare:
