Small children and Proverbs

Post  Dan on Sat Nov 01, 2008 6:25 pm

A third grade teacher collected well-known proverbs. She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb, and had them come up with the rest.

1. Better to be safe than…
2. Strike While the…
3. Never underestimate the power of… etc…

Their insight may surprise you.

1. Better to be safe than punch a 5th grader.
2. Strike while the bug is close.
3. Never underestimate the power of termites.
4. You can lead a horse to water but how?
5. Don’t bite the hand that looks dirty.
6. No news is impossible.
7. A miss is as good as a Mister.
8. You can’t teach an old dog new math.
9. If you lie down with dogs, you’ll stink in the morning.
10. Love all, trust me.
11. The pen is mightier than the pigs.
12. An idle mind is the best way to relax.
13. Where there’s smoke there’s pollution.
14. Happy the bride who gets all the presents.
15. A penny saved is not much.
16. Two’s company, three’s the Musketeers.
17. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you put on to go to bed.
18. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you have to blow your nose.
19. None are so blind as Helen Keller.
20. Children should be seen and not spanked or grounded.
21. If at first you don’t succeed, get new batteries.
22. When the blind leadeth the blind, get out of the way.

I hope I'm not the only one who finds this funny >.<

And when I was in third grade, I'm pretty sure that I knew a good portion of these proverbs. xd
