Kid's Proberbs

Kid’s Proverbs

Kid’s Proverbs were written by the children in a class of twenty-six, and are presented here by a flabbergasted teacher!  

She presented each child in her classroom the first 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!

They came up with these Kid’s Proverbs!
