Yuri and Xavier were in the same class in school. Xavier was new to the school and
Yuri thought he was the class leader. He ran the students in the class and
sometimes not in the best ways. Yuri and his followers were not quick to make
friends.They were very rude and unfriendly with Xavier.
It reached the point where they called a meeting after school at the playground.
Why the X? You are so different. Yuri asked Xavier.
X sounds like ks in most cases, when it is riding on the end.
X sounds like z if it is leading or riding in the word.
X is used in science and medicine to name or describe such as xiphoid and xylem.
Those words are very old and are either Greek or Latin.
X holds a place in mathematics.
X can be used to name chemicals like xylols and xylate.
X words can name riches such as xeriff or boats like xebecs.
X can make music like xylophone, xalam, xun and xaphoon.
X is used to name places in China like Xizang and Xian.
X names people like Xeros, Xenon, Xenia, Xia
X can be used to name many things!
Y does not say y in any words either, not at the beginning, middle or end, so what’s
so wrong with X?
Y is from Greece and the Romans used it too. It is a consonant and a vowel,
depending on how it is used.
Why Y? You are different, too. Xavier asked Yuri.
Y is for yellow, the color of the sun.
Y is for yummy yumberries, yogurt, yams, yokes, yakitori, and yautia to name a few.
Y is for yak, yapok, and Yellowjacket to add some sting!
Y is for years, yearlings, youth and young.
Y is for yield, yawn and taking a nap in the yard.
Y is for YELL or yodel,when you find yourself in trouble!
Y is yacht if you like rich sailing.
Y is for Yucca, yucky and yurt, a place to live in.
Y is a scientific element, Yttrium and Ytterbium.
Y is for yoga that can be practiced all day.
Y can make music with the yay li tanbur, yazh, and yunluo.
Y is for Yuma, Yonkers, York, Yemen, and Yongzhou.
Y is also a placeholder in mathematics too!
Y is just as important as X, now you see!
Now we see the uses of X and Y even though they are different as different can be!
We see why both are important and have been used a lot!
We have to work together, so let’s give this our best shot!
We will start tomorrow yawned Xavier and Yuri.
We will join together and solve some problems and see.
We will see each other tomorrow when we are free!
