Order NowSammy 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!

I am Danny Diamond

I am like a kite

But I’m really just a square

Who’s corners are pulled tight

Count my sides, come along

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.

Math Songs

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

(Sung to 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
