The Shapes Song Lyrics and Actions:

There are many kinds of shapes
I see them everywhere
I love circles and rectangles
Triangles and squares


When I go walking I see circles
Everywhere I go
A circle is round like a steering wheel
It’s shaped just like an “O”
(Make a circle with hands)

Like the big bright sun
And a cinnamon bun
And the wheels on a bicycle
Round and round they go

Like a big balloon
Like the big full moon
How many kinds of circles
Do you know?


I see squares when we go to town
They’re everywhere you turn
They have four sides of the very same length
Let’s see what we can learn
(Make a square with hands)

Like a pizza box
And my toy blocks
Equal sides of 1,2,3,and 4
Like a picture frame
Or a windowpane
A square is just a shape that I adore


Here and there I find triangles
Look around and see
And a triangle has three sides
One and two and three
(Make triangle with hands)

Like a pizza slice
A piece of pie is nice
How about a great big
Ice cream cone?

Like a volcano
Or the sail on my boat
Or a steeple, or the shape of the roof
That’s on my home


I share my house
With a lot of rectangles
Let’s just take a look
With two sides long
And two sides short
They’re shaped just like a book
(Make rectangle with hands)

Like my front door
And the rug on my floor
Like a fridge, like a brick
Like a bed, like a stereo

Like a Kleenex box
And my grandfather clock
I see rectangles
Everywhere I go!

There are many kinds of shapes
I see them everywhere
I love circles and rectangles
Triangles and squares.
