Shapes Poem

I am Cera Circle
Watch me turn round and round
And you will learn
I'm not straight and I don't bend
My outside edges never end!

Squire Square is my name
My four 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
Whose corners are pulled tight

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

I'm Tommy Triangle
Look at me
Count my sides 
There's 1-2-3!

Opal Oval is my name.
The circle and I are not the same.
The circle is round, as round can be.
I am shaped like an egg as you can see

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!

I am Sarah Star 
You can see me twinkle from afar 
My five points make me complete 
When I'm brightly shining I can't be beat

Olly Octagon is my name 
The shape of a stop sign is the same.
My eight sides are fun to count 
How about you try it out!
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8!
