The Joy of Shapes

Joy of Shapes
Online Singapore Math

Christina Sng for Maths@Singapore

You’ve taught me to count,

You’ve taught me to measure.

You’ve taught me how to calculate

The insides of circles and triangles.

Let’s not forget the marvelous insides 

Of squares and rectangles. 

They are only two-dimensional.

If you want to count sides,

We have the pentagon, hexagon,

Heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon!

Now, three-dimensional shapes are fun.

They are shaped like us!

We have cones, cubes, cuboids,

Cylinders, pyramids, and spheres.

Do you know a doughnut

Is called a torus?

There are many more shapes

Waiting to be measured

And even more waiting

To be appreciated!

Celebrate shapes today!
