CHILDREN'S PROVERBS

A first grade teacher collected well known proverbs.  She gave each child in
her class the first half of a proverb and ask each student to come up with
the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done
by first graders, but there are some good ones nonetheless their insight may
surprise you.

Better to be safe than........punch a 5th grader
Strike while the.........bug is close
It's always darkest before.......Daylight Savings Time.
Never under estimate the power of.......termites
You can lead a horse to water but........how?
Don't bite the hand that.........looks dirty
No news is.........impossible
A miss is as good as a.......Mr.
You can't teach an old dog new.....math
If you lie down with dogs you'll......stink in the morning
Love all, trust.........me
The pen is mightier than the......pigs
An idle mind is.......the best way to relax
Where there's smoke there's.......pollution
Happy the bride who.........gets all the presents
A penny saved is.........not much
Two's company, three's........the Musketeers
Don't put off till tomorrow what.......you put on to go to bed
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and........ you have to blow
your nose
Children should be seen and not.......spanked or grounded
If at first you don't succeed.....get new batteries
You get out of something only what you.....see in the picture on the box
When the blind leadeth the blind......get out of the way
