***Humor: New Proverbs***

Enjoy!

*New proverbs*
A first grade teacher collected well known proverbs. She had twenty-five students in her class and she presented each child in her class the first half of a 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 these keep in mind that these are first graders..... 6-years old, because the last one is a classic!

  • I LOVE these! I have always written the things my kids have said growing up and put it in a book called "-isms". One of my favorite Averie-isms:

    Mommy: Averie, what is Easter?
    Averie: It's where they planted Jesus and he bloomed!

    On those difficult days (like this one), I like to pull that book out and remind myself why I'm a mom.

  • These are great. And I love the Easter one. "Jesus bloomed" is a good explanation of Easter. Preachers should use it in their sermons. They probably won't, but they should.
