(sung to The Muffin Man)Do you know what shape this is? Shape this is? Shape this is? Do you know what shape this is? I’m holding in my hand? (hold up a different shape each time you sing) Make a Circle, Make a Square
(sung to Oh My Darling Clementine)Make a circle, make a circle, Draw it high in the sky. Use your finger, use your finger, Make it round, as round as pie. Make a square, make a square, Make the lines nice and straight. Make a square, make a square, You could draw one or draw eight. Make a triangle, make a triangle, Always start at the top. Make a tent shape for a triangle, Use three lines, and then you stop! The Square Shape Song (do it with other shapes)(Sung to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)Put your square shape in the air, Hold it high and keep it there. Put your square shape on your back, Now please lay it on your lap. Put your square shape on your toes, Now please hold it by your nose. Hold your square shape in your hand, Now will everyone please stand. Wave your square shape at the door, Now please lay it on the floor. Hold your square shape and jump, jump, jump, Now throw your square shape way, way up. |

Tune to Frère 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 a 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. |
