Proverbs - the kids way

A first grade teacher gave each kid in the class the first half of the proverb, and asked them to come up with the rest. Here is what the kids came up with:

People in glass houses shouldn't . . . run around naked.

Better to be safe than . . . punch a 5th grader.

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 . . . how?

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

Laugh and the world laughs with you...cry and you have to blow your nose.

A miss is as good as a . . . Mr.

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

If you lie down with dogs, you . . . will stink in the morning.

A bird in the going to poop on you.

The pen is mightier than . . . the pigs.

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

Where there is smoke, there is . . . pollution.

Happy is the bride who . . . gets all the presents.

A penny saved is . . . not much.

Two is company, three is . . . The Musketeers.

None are so blind as . . . Helen Keller.

Children should be seen and not . . . spanked or grounded.

If at first you don't succeed . . . get new batteries.

You get out of something what you . . . see pictured on the box.

When the blind lead the blind . . . get out of the way.

Aren't they funny? And true!

Yes they are very funny and indeed oh so true! :) surprisingly there were a lot I had not heard before so i'm not sure what the "real" version was.

Just Mom said...

I think my favorite is, "If at first you don't succeed...get new batteries." That sounds so much like my son.

Thanks for the laughs. :-D

Mari, you made me smile once again! I like the teaching an old dog math one and the blind leading the blind one. Very funny how kids minds' work. That's one creative writing assignment. The possibilities are endless :)
