graders read a book titled ​So

mixed opinions on it. We 
compared the popular book, 
“Wonder,” to the newer novel, 
and the results were pretty 
surprising….

Math Poem
By: Riley Stewart
Stress
Word problem here…
Word problem there....
It haunts me that math is everywhere
Test today, midterm tomorrow
Why do I have so much sorrow
I just wanna sleep
I just wanna eat
But I can’t when math is on repeat
The wrath of math makes me scared
When I am in math I’m in despair.
Stress is everywhere…
