It’s time to Trap “N” Rap it.

The title we must underline.
It’s an important clue.
The title we must underline.
It helps us construe
the meaning of the reading
and the author’s view.
Read the questions next.
Find out what they’ll ask.
Know what to look for.
Understand the task.
Are there questions we can answer
before we read.
Then go ahead and do it
if more reading we don’t need.

We predict what we think
the reading is about.
We’re aggressive readers.
We try to find out
the message of the author
until there is no doubt.
We number the paragraphs
each and every one.
This helps us
when we’re close to being done.
Confirming our answers
but we have just begun.
Because now it is time
for us to read.
Now it is time
for us to deal.
Now it’s time for
us to reveal
all that we have learned.

It’s time to Trap “N” Rap it.

As we read
important terms we underline.
We think about their meaning
deep within our minds.
Now as we read
does the reading tell
an answer to the question?
Does it ring a bell?
If yes, stop right there.
Note the paragraph number.
Go answer the question.
Return back to the number
and continue to read on.
Finally, the questions will be answered
at this time in space
The questions will be answered
right here in this place.
So, before we finish this whole song
we better eliminate
all the answers that are wrong.

We choose the answer
that is the best.
We choose the best answer
to ace this test.
We choose the answer
that is the best.
We choose the best answer
to ace this test.

Now is the time
to go back and verify.
We make totally sure
that we are right
We make totally sure
That we’ve been bright.
We write the number of the paragraphs
where our answers were found
next to the questions
and we will never be confound.
