Shapes Game

Use one or more of the activities that follow,
depending on the ages and abilities of your children.

1.       Cut out large felt shapes (one of each), and place them on a flannel board. Each time children close their eyes (as indicated in the lyrics), mix them up on the board.

2.       Hide shapes around the room, and have children find the one called for in each verse.
 

3.       Hold hands and walk around in a circle during the chorus. Stop, close your eyes, and then point to something in the room that is the correct shape ( a window or door for the rectangle, a clock for a circle, etc.). Be prepared to pause the CD player if children need more time, or if you would to have them share their found shapes.
 

4.       Have one child stand in the middle of the circle. Tape one shape to the backs of each of the other children, and have them hold hands and walk around while the child in the middle closes his or her eyes. When itís time to open them, children stop, and turn their backs to the middle, letting their shapes be seen.  The child in the middle chooses the shape indicated in the song, and that child is then in the middle. If you have a large class, several children can be in the middle at one time. Again, be prepared to pause the CD player in between turns.

 

 

 

 

Shapes

 

Chorus:

Shapes are all around, you see them everywhere

Rectangles, triangles, circles and squares

1. Close your eyes, and when I count to three

    Open them, and find a square, point it out to me

2. Close your eyes, and when I count to three

    Open them, and find a circle, point it out to me

3. Close your eyes, and when I count to three

    Open them, and find a triangle, point it out to me

4. Close your eyes, and when I count to three

    Open them, and find a rectangle, point it out to me
