Shapes are all around us
Such as squares, diamonds, rhombus
In every area you will find
A formula in your mind
In math you can trust
Limerick by Cindy Briles & Sheng Yang
Our Geometry class was scary,
solving the problems got hairy.
Our eyes bugged out
and we began to shout!
When it comes to math now-
we figured out how.
Thanks to Pam by far,
more confident we are!

more fun than social studies
and more fun than science
Haiku by Pat Blanton & Paula Hamrick & Kari Thomas
Some have many sides to count, but some
Have none and are completely round
Area is the amount of space a shape covers
Perimeter is the distance around
Equations create a problem to solve, and
Solutions are the answers we are looking for
Acrostic by Sonya Elliott & Tanya Mussetter
Once there was a square
who had 4 sides.
Each side being equal and wide.
At every corner I am 90 degrees.
So measure me if you please!
Narrative by Mandy Hinkle & Cheryl Martin
The first letter in my name.
Rectangle I am half
I have three corners.
All sides may be equal.
No circles here
Geometry I am part of.
Like me or not
Every triangle equal 180 degrees.
Acrostic by Mandy Hinkle & Cheryl Martin
Prisms here, prisms there
prisms can be found most anywhere!
My cereal box and even my T.V.
I can't believe there are so many.
Just take a look. . . prisms are everywhere!

Triangle, acute angles.
Angles, sides equal.
Haiku by Melessa, Amy, Marcia
First multiply base times height
To find area.

"No wonder they call me a square"
My desk measures 3" x 3',
My book 12: x 12:
My locker number is 180,
with a combination of 30, 60, 90.
My favorite holiday would be Pythagoras Day,
and my favorite gift a protractor.
My bedroom is laid out in all right angles,
No wonder they call me a square.

Acrostic by Tammy Hammer & Gina Sain
Angles here, angles there,
There are angles everywhere
Triangles lines equal three
Right angles equal 90 degrees
Oh how dull our world would be,
If we did not have angles to see.

We will discuss shapes
including angles and lines
When we teach math later.
