"Good morning class. Welcome to the first day of school. Lets all introduce ourselves. My name is Miss Heart and I am your teacher". Miss Heart is the color red.
"My name is Square. I have four equal sides. Can you count with me? One, two, three, four". Square is the color blue.
"My name is Triangle. I have three sides. Can you count with me in Spanish? Uno, dos, tres". Triangle is the color green.
"My name is Rectangle. I have four sides like my friend, Square". Rectangles have two short sides and two long sides. Rectangle is the color black.
"My name is Diamond". Diamonds have four sides. "I look like Square standing on a corner point" she said as she did a little spin on the tips of her toes. Diamond is the color pink.
"My name is Trapezoid. I have four sides too" he exclaimed! Trapezoids have one set of parallel lines. Parallel means two lines running side by side but never touching. Trapezoid is the color brown.
"My name is Hexagon. Sometimes my friends call me Octagon" he said in an angry voice. Hexagons and octagons do look similar. "I have six sides not eight like Octagon" he huffed. Hexagon walked back to his spot mumbling under his breath "I am sure glad Octagon is in a different class". Hexagon is the color orange.
