Shapes

Round is a Pancake

Round is a pancake,
Round is a plum,
Round is a doughnut,
Round is a drum.
Round is a puppy,
Curled up on a rug.
Round are the spots,
On a wee ladybug.
Look all around,
On the ground, in the air,
You will find round things everywhere!


Circle Song

(to the tune of: "If You're Happy and You Know It")

A circle is a shape that goes round.
A circle is a shape that goes round.
A circle is a shape that goes round,
And round and round.
A circle is a shape that goes round.

Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round.
Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round.
Tiptoe slowly on the circle,
And go round and round and round.
Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round.


Suzy Circle

I'm Suzy Circle.
I'm happy as can be.
I go round and round.
Can you draw me?


Circle

Here's a circle
Here's a circle
How can you tell?
It goes round and round
No end can be found
Here's a circle
Here's a circle.


Make A Circle
(to the tune of "Pop Goes the Weasel")

Round and round on the paper I go,
What fun to go around like so,
What have I made, do you know?
I made a circle!


The Rolling Circle Song
(to the tune of "Have You Ever Seen A Lassie?")

Have you ever seen a circle, a circle, a circle?
Have you ever seen a circle, which goes round and round?
It rolls this way and that way, and that way and this way.
Have you ever seen a circle, which goes round and round?


Sammy Square

Sammy Square is my name.
My four sides are just the same.
Turn me around, I don't care.
I'm always the same.
I'm Sammy Square.


Make A Square
(to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")

From the bottom to the top,
Straight across and then you stop,
Straight down to the bottom again,
Across and stop where you began,
If the lines are the same size,
Then a square is you surprise.


The Square Song
(to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine")

I am a square, a lovely square
I have four sides; they're all the same
I have four corners, four lovely corners
I am a square, that is my name!


Ollie Oval

I am Ollie Oval
A football shape is mine
Some people think that I'm an egg
But I think I look fine!


Right Circle, Left Square

Close my eyes, shut them tight,
Make a circle with my right.
Keep them shut, make it fair,
With my left hand, make a square.


Tommy Triangle

I'm Tommy Triangle.
Look at me!
Count my sides.
One, two, three.


This Is a Triangle

(to the tune of: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

This is a triangle,
Look and you will see.
It has three corners and three sides.
Count them one, two, three!


My Hat

My hat it has three corners,
Three corners has my hat,
And if it didn't have three corners,
It wouldn't be a hat!


Make a Triangle
(to the tune of "Three Blind Mice")

One, two, three; one, two, three
Do you see? Do you see?
Up the hill and to the top,
Down the hill--and then you stop,
Straight across; tell me what have you got?
A triangle--a triangle!


Ricky Rectangle

Ricky Rectangle is my name.
My four sides are not the same.
2 are short and 2 are long.
Count my sides, come right along.
1, 2, 3, 4.


It's a Rectangle

(to the tune of: "B-I-N-G-O")

There is a shape that has four sides,
But it is not a square...No!
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It is not like a square...No!

Two sides are long; two sides are short.
They are not the same...No!
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
It's a rectangle;
The sides are not the same...No!


Make A Rectangle
(to the tune of "The Eensy, Weensy Spider")

A long line at the bottom,
A long line at the top,
A short line to connect each side,
A rectangle you've got!
A short line at the bottom
A short line at the top
A long line to connect each side
A rectangle you've got!


Danny Diamond

I am Danny Diamond
I am like a kite
But I'm really just a square
Who's corners are pulled tight.

Harry Heart is my name,
The shape I make is my fame,
With a point on the bottom,
And two humps on top,
When it comes to love,
I just can't stop!


Shape Song

(to the tune of: "The Farmer in the Dell")

A circle's like a ball,
A circle's like a ball,
Round and round
It never stops.
A circle's like a ball!

A square is like a box,
A square is like a box,
It has four sides,
They are the same.
A square is like a box!

A triangle has 3 sides,
A triangle has 3 sides,
Up the mountain,
Down, and back.
A triangle has 3 sides!

A rectangle has 4 sides,
A rectangle has 4 sides,
Two are long, and
Two are short.
A rectangle has 4 sides!


Shapes

(to the tune of: "Frere Jacques")

This is a square. This is a square.
How can you tell? How can you tell?
It has four sides,
All the same size.
It's a square. It's a square.

This is a circle. This is circle.
How can you tell? How can you tell?
It goes round and round,
No end can be found.
It's a circle. It's a circle.

This is a triangle. This is a triangle.
How can you tell? How can you tell?
It only has three sides,
That join to make three points.
It's a triangle. It's a triangle.

This is a rectangle. This is a rectangle.
How can you tell? How can you tell?
It has two short sides,
And it has two long sides.
It's a rectangle. It's a rectangle.


3-D Geometry

A basketball is round and hard,
It's shape is called a shpere.
A dice's shape is called a cube,
It's faces flat and clear.
