Shape Poems

Poems and Songs About Shapes

Sammy Square
Sammy Square is my name
My 4 sides are just the same
Turn me around, I don't care
I'm always the same, I'm a square!

-----------------------------------------

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

-----------------------------------------

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

-----------------------------------------

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!

-----------------------------------------

Tommy Triangle
Tommy triangle is the name for me.
Tap my sides 1, 2, 3.

Ricky Rectangle
Ricky Rectangle is my name,
My four sides are not always the same.
Sometimes short and sometimes long,
Hear me sing my happy song.

Harry Heart
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!

-----------------------------------------

Make A Triangle
(tune: 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!

-----------------------------------------

Make A Square
(tune: Twinkle, Twinkle)

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.

-----------------------------------------

Make A Rectangle
A long line at the bottom
A long line at the top
A short line to connect each side
A rectangle you've got!
Now a shot line at the bottom
A short line at the top
A long line to connect each side
A rectangle you've got!

-----------------------------------------

Make A Circle
(tune: 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!

-----------------------------------------

What Shape Is This?
(Song - Sung to The Muffin Man)

Do you know what shape this is?
What shape this is, what shape this is?
Do you know what shape this is,
I'm holding in my hand?

-----------------------------------------

Shapes
(tune: Are You Sleeping?)

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
What Shape Is This? - Song - Sung to The Muffin Man
Do you know what shape this is?
What shape this is, what shape this is?
Do you know what shape this is,
I'm holding in my hand?

-----------------------------------------

The Square Song
(Sung to 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

The Rolling Circle Song
(Sung to 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?
