Children's proverbs

An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

1.Don't change horses
until they stop running.

2.

Strike while the
bug is close.

3.It's always darkest before
Daylight Saving Time.

4.Never underestimate the power of
termites.

5.You can lead a horse to water but
how?

6.Don't bite the hand that
looks dirty.

7.No news is
impossible.

8.A miss is as good as a
Mr.

9.You can't teach an old dog new
math.

stink in the morning.

me.

12.The pen is mightier than the
pigs.

13.An idle mind is
the best way to relax.

14.Where there's smoke there's
pollution.

15.Happy the bride who
gets all the presents.

16.A penny saved is
not much.

the Musketeers.

you put on to go to
bed.

you have to blow your nose.

Stevie Wonder.

spanked or grounded.

get new batteries.

see in the picture on
the box.

get out of the way.

I agree. It's cute, but seems to be one of those "chains" from Facebook. My BS meter is going off.

6 yr olds know alot just by listening ot keeping their eyes open.  Never know if someone had a pregnancy scare around them.
