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

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!
