Shape Songs:
• The Circle Song
(Tune: Up on the Housetop)
Circle, circle big and round (make big circles in the air as you sing)
Where they end can not be found
Tires, balls, the earth, and sun
Making circles is so much fun.

• God's Love is Like a Circle (Original Source Unknown)
Tune:  Marine Corp's Hymn, Stand Up Stand Up for Jesus, or Puff the Magic Dragon

God's love is like a circle,
A circle big and round.
For when you see a circle
No ending can be found.
And so the love of Jesus
Goes on eternally,
Forever and forever
I know that God loves me.
