                               VOCABULARY

         light                   our                   would                   your                   again                    

 

       Every morning we see our shadow when the sun comes up.  All                   day we see the sun up in the sky.  It gives the Earth light so          people can see.  When the light changes, shadows change too.           The sun is low in the morning.  Shadows are long in the morning.           The sun is high at lunchtime so you do not see your shadow.  Your          shadow is short at dinnertime.  If you could play with your shadow,          what would you do?  Tomorrow, you will see your shadow          again!
