The Shape of Things
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Look around you, here and there.
 
2     You can see shapes everywhere.
 
3     What is a circle? It's a shape that's round
 
4     like a nickel that's rolling on the ground.
 
5     A pizza's round. A wheel is, too.
 
6     So is that plate that's colored blue.
 
7     What is a square? It has four sides that are the same.
 
8     It's like the red and black squares found on a checkers game.
 
9     A square is like a slice of cheese.
 
10     It's like an ice cube that you freeze.
