Teaching Shapes Through Songs

So I promised to share with y'all my Shapes Songs as long as you don't make fun of my voice.  Because, well, I'm not known for my singing ability.  I mean, it's not horrific or anything, but that's because I did, like, seven takes of this little video until it was as good as it was gonna get.

How did I come up with these songs to teach the eight basic shapes?  Why, I just expanded my repertoire beyond the holidays to write bad poetry set to songs we already know and love.  You may recognize the tunes to several Schoolhouse Rock songs, as well as the much beloved Cows from the Philadelphia Chickens CD.  There are also the old standbys If You're Happy and You Know It and Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

(They're really cheesy, y'all, but I'm sharing 'em anyway.)

Mama T I'm thinking you could market this idea. Especially that Oval song...that's awesome:)

Aus said...

Good on you there TM!! Oval is a tough one too - just an oddball shape! (and I was gonna make a crack about "don't quit your day job" - but I won't! ;) cause that would be like snarky or something)

hugs - outstanding - aus and co.
