Learning Shapes {Circle}



Where Is....?
tune: Where is Thumpkin?

Where is circle?  Where is circle?
Here I am.  Here I am.
How are you today, sir?  Very well, I thank you.
Run away.  Run away.
(repeat with rectangle, triangle, and square

Do You Know What Shape This Is?
tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb

Do you know what shape this is?
Shape this is?  Shape this is?
Do you know what shape this is and do you have one too?
If you do, give it a shake, shake shake shake, shake shake shake.
If you do, give it a shake and shout “hooray for squares!”
(I repeated with the triangle, circle, and rectangle)
Now we know all our shapes, all our shapes, all our shapes
Now we know all our shapes, shake them and say “hooray!”


A little circle (make circle with finger and thumb)
A bigger circle, (make circle with two hands)
And a great big circle I see. (make a circle with arms)
Now help me count them,
One, two, three!  (repeat gestures for each size)

Sea Shells

 I collected sea shells during my trip to the beach.  
I brought back so many, the kids LOVED painting them.

 It was the perfect way to show "Big", "Medium", and "Small".

We also read the story "There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Shell".
