Shapes Songs

The shape song

(Sung to Are You Sleeping)

 

This is a square X2

How can you tell X2

It has 4 sides

All the same size

It’s a square X2

 

This is a rectangle X2

How can you tell X2

It has two long sides

And two short sides

It’s a rectangle X2

 

This is a circle X2

How can you tell X2

It goes ‘round and around

No end to be found

It’s a circle X2

 

It’s a triangle X2

How can you tell X2

It has three sides X2

It’s a triangle X2

 

Do You Know What Shape This Is?
(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)

If You’re Holding
(sung to If You’re Happy and You Know It)

Before singing, give each child a card with a shape to hold.

If you’re holding a square stand up!
If you’re holding a square stand up!
If you’re holding a square, if you’re holding a square
If you’re holding a square stand up.

* Repeat with other shapes

Where Is Triangle
(sung to Where Is Thumbkin)

Before singing, give each child a card with a shape to hold.

Where is triangle?
Where is triangle?
Here I am, here I am. (children holding triangles hold them in the air)
How are you today, sir?
Very well, I thank you,
Run away, run away. (children hide shape behind their back)

* Repeat with other shapes
