TEACHERS: You can use the text for a dictation, a gapped text, or other form of classroom practice. For your convenience, here is the text you can copy and paste into a Word document.
“I give light,” said the sun. “They need me.”
“We provide water,” said the clouds. “They need us more.”
“Without me, it would always be night,” the sun informed the clouds.
They continued their war of words – until a small voice rose from the ground to the air.
“I need you both to grow,” said a plant.
It took a second to hear that voice of reason. Then the sun and the clouds acted together to produce every color. Through the air and over that little plant they sent a special sign of peace.
