Geometric Shapes Song

Songs are an amazing tool to use in teaching, as most of you know. The rhythm and melody are a natural way for the brain to remember.

This song to helps  children remember the names of common geometric shapes. I immediately added it to my list of memory tips and made it available in pdf form. Download it below. Even very young children can sing and draw the shapes in the air. Sing this song to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell. The Geometric Shapes Song teaches all of the shapes listed.

  • circle
  • oval
  • square
  • triangle
  • rectangle
  • pentagon
  • hexagon
  • octagon

Instruct the children to make the shape with their hands, or draw the shape on a large piece of paper. The more movement and visualizing students do, the quicker information is retained. Having fun with the movement is great too. It all connects together for a great learning experience. Try the first verse by singing it to the tune of Farmer in the Dell:

A circle’s like a ball,
A circle’s like a ball,
Round and round, it never stops,
A circle’s like a ball.
