2: Circles are round and have no corners. This clock has a circle shaped face. The oranges we eat are circles, so are peas and doughnuts. The sun is a circle | CIRCLE
3: SQUARE | Squares have four sides. All those sides have the same length. These dice are square. Also a slice of bread is square. Many boxes are square.
4: Rectangles have four sides and four corners. Two sides are longer than the other two sides. This phone is a rectangle. Also envelopes are rectangles. Soap in the tub is a rectangle. Some windows are rectangles. | RECTANGLE
5: OCTOGON | Octogons have eight sides and have eight corners. This picture frame is an octogon. Also stop signs that we see when we are driving are octogons.
