SAY ALOUD

shoe     shadow      fish         bush       ship            sheep     dish      wash           shell       wish      brush           shade

When the sun shines, I can see

My shadow right in front of me

When I walk, my shadow walks!

When I hop, my shadow hops!

When I jump, my shadow jumps

And when I stop, my shadow stops!
