First Grade Proverbs

16 Mar

A first grade teacher collected well-known proverbs. She gave each child the first half of the proverb and asked them to fill in the rest. Here’s what the kids came up with:

  • Strike while the…bug is close.
  • It’s always darkest before…daylight savings time.
  • Never underestimate the power of…termites.
  • You can lead a horse to water but…why?
  • A miss is as good as a…Mr.
  • An idle mind is…the best way to relax.
  • Where there is smoke, there’s…pollution.
  • A penny saved is…not much.
  • Two is company, three’s…the Musketeers.
  • If at first you don’t succeed…get new batteries.
  • Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and…you have to blow your nose.

Thx Kathy!
