The digits, the digits, they each have a name
Memorize ‘em, Understand ‘em is the game
We start at the decimal, to the left we move
Each place is 10 times bigger, multiply ‘em and we prove
The digits, the digits, they fit in so tight
Greater to the left and lesser to the right
Starting at the decimal, sandwiched in between
Zeroes hold the empty places, haven’t you seen?
The digits, the digits, each one means a lot
You can’t leave ‘em out of the place value spot
Reading big numbers each comma’s a word
“Thousand, Million, Billion,” commas, haven’t you heard? Word!
Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Comma
Thousands, Ten Thousands, Hundred Thousands, Comma
Millions, Ten Millions, Hundred Millions, Comma
Billions, Ten Billions, Hundred Billions, Comma
Let’s take it to the right of the decimal point
We’ve got tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths
Smaller than a 1 with a T H

Did you ever wake up to one of those days where everything is a problem? You have 10 things to do, but only 30 minutes until your bus leaves. Is there enough time? You have 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants. Can you make one good outfit? Then you start to wonder: Why does everything have to be such a problem? Why do 2 apples always have to be added to 5 oranges? Why do 4 kids always have to divide 12 marbles? Why can't you just keep 10 cookies without someone taking 3 away? Why? Because you are a victim of the Math Curse. That's why. But, don't despair. This is one student's story of how that curse can be broken.

- Mrs. Faulkner
- It is both an honor and a privilege to be part of the Campus school family. I have earned my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Memphis am super excited to be teaching 4th grade math this year. I received the News Channel 3 WREG Educator of the Week award in 2007, and have been recognized among the top 5% of teachers in Tennessee as an “Irreplaceable” (most highly effective teacher), based on the Tennessee Teacher Effectiveness Measurement initiative. I enjoy teaching, reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband Shun and our children Shane and Shelby.
