Shapes all Around

Shapes, Reshape! By Silvia Borando (Candlewick Press)

Fingerplay: Five Little Shapes     

Five little shapes in the world today. (Hold up five fingers)

Can you see them as you play? (Put hand over eyes and look around)

One little square is a window to the sky. (Draw square with fingers)

One little triangle is the roof so high. (Draw a triangle with fingers)

One little circle is a cookie so sweet. (Make a circle with both hands)

One little rectangle is a cracker to eat.  (Make rectangle with fingers and pretend to eat)

And one little diamond is a kite in the clouds. (Draw diamond with fingers)

Can you say them all out loud?

Square, Triangle, Circle, Rectangle, Diamond

 

Mouse Shapes by Ellen Stoll Walsh (Harcourt, Inc.)

 

Shapes Song (Tune: "The Wheels on the Bus")

A circle is a shape that goes round and round,

Round and round, round and round.

A circle is a shape that goes round and round,

Round and round.

 

A triangle is a shape with three sides,

Three sides, three sides.

A triangle is a shape with three sides,

Three sides.

 

A square is a shape with four sides,

Four sides, four sides,

A square is a shape with four sides,

Four sides.
