Tune:  “Frere Jacques”

I see shadows,
I see shadows,
On the wall,
On the wall.
Some are short and scary,
Some are short and scary,
Some are tall,
Some are tall.

I see shadows,
I see shadows,
Late at night,
What a sight!
But whenever there is light,
They disappear from my sight.
They all know,
When to go!
               Jean Warren

Tune:  “When Your Happy and You Know It”

Oh my shadow likes to move, just like I do.
Oh my shadow likes to move, just like I do.
Whatever that I do, my shadow does it,too.
Oh my shadow likes to move, just like I do.
                                                Jean Warren

Have your children pair up and have one person move while their partner tries to do the same.

MY SHADOW (By Robert Louis Stevenson)

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me.
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him is how he likes to grow –
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow.
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes goes so little that there’s none of him at all.

He hasn’t got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close behind me, he’s a coward you can see;
I’d think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!

One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
