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 the top of an ice cube that you freeze.
11     What is a triangle? It has sides of three.
12     Here are some different triangles you might seeâ"
13     a pizza slice, a guitar pick,
14     a pennant flying from a stick.
