Flannel Friday: Shapes

March 23, 2012

The combination of Flannel Friday and Pinterest has made it easy for me to keep track of flannelboards I’ve made and also let coworkers know they exist and are available. With that in mind, I show you my very simple shapes that go with the song below. I like it because it is is easy for kids (and parents) to learn and helps identify both shapes and colours.


The Shapes
…to the tune of London Bridge
(Source: PUBYAC compilation)

All the squares have four sides,
have four sides, have four sides.
All the squares have four sides,
and this one is red.

A triangle has three sides,
Has three sides, has three sides.
A triangle has three sides
and this one is green.

All the circles are very round,
Very round, very round.
All the circles are very round.
and this one is brown.

Rectangles are extra tall
Extra tall. Extra tall.
Rectangles are extra tall
And this one is blue.

Diamond shapes are very sharp,
Very sharp, very sharp.
Diamond shapes are very sharp
and this one is white.

I found another London Bridge variation, without colours, on Storytime Katie:

“I Can See Shapes”
I can see a circle shape, circle shape, circle shape
I can see a circle shape, how about you?
(Little square, triangle, rectangle, diamond)

  1. I love the idea of using Pinterest but I need to find the time to really explore it. Every time I try ~ I get sidetracked by going to the original blogs that something is pinned from and then there goes an hour or two. :-/ LOL!

    Do you use Pinterest just personally or does your library have an acct?
