From the Archives: Children & Proverbs

I spent some time on the weekend cleaning up my blog tags- this is a HUGE project and is probably going to take me months to do. In cleaning up the tags, I have had the opportunity to revisit different posts from over the years. I have close to 1250 blog posts (CRAZY!!!) so there are a lot of posts I have forgotten about. It's been fun to be reminded of different aspects of my life, favourite beauty products, songs that I love(d), books I've read, places I've been. 

Here is a post from March of 2013 (original post can be found here), that I thought I would share again. A grade one teacher gave her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to complete the proverb. 

  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 underestimtae the power of...termites.
  5. You can lead a horse to water but...How?

  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' the Musketeers.
  18. Don't put off till tomorrow what...you put on to go to bed. 
  19. Laugh and the 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.
