Absolutely Priceless

       

       An Elementary School Teacher had twenty-six 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 first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!


       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.

       7.
       

       No news is
       

       impossible.

       8.
       

       A miss is as good as a
       

       Mr.

       9.
       

       You can't teach an old dog new
       

       math.

       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.
