Fun Friday


I know this has made the rounds before, but when a friend sent it to me the other day, I giggled as if for the first time.

Blessings also to all teachers teaching Grade One. The very thought gives me a mighty thirst. Have a great weekend, everyone!

***********
A Grade One school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the first 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! We know what he (or she) heard around the house!

 
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.

No news is 
impossible. 
8. 
A miss is as good as a 
Mr. 
9. 
You can't teach an old dog new 
maths. 
10. 
If you lie down with dogs, you'll 
stink in the morning. 
11. 
Love all, trust 
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. 
17. 
Two's company, three's 
the Musketeers. 
18. 
Don't put off till tomorrow what 
you put on to go to bed. 
19. 
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and 
you have to blow your nose. 
20. 
There are none so blind as 
Stevie Wonder. 
21. 
Children should be seen and not 
spanked or grounded. 
22. 
If at first you don't succeed 
get new batteries. 
23. 
You get out of something only what you 
see in the picture on the box. 
24. 
When the blind lead the blind 
get out of the way. 
25. 
A bird in the hand 
is going to poop on you. 
And the WINNER and last one! 
26. 
Better late than 
pregnant.

  1. Elspeth - Oh, my this is so great! Thank you for sharing it :-). And trust me, as a person who's been in classrooms and helped to prepare teachers for nearly 25 years, I can tell you, first grade teachers are special and indispensable people.
