Children & Proverbs

My co-worker and good friend shared this with me- it was on of those forwarded emails. I thought this was pretty funny, so I had to share it with all of you.

A 1st grade school teacher had 26 students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st 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 1st graders, 6 year olds, because the last one is a classic!
