First Grade Proverbs – Too Funny!

My illustrator came across this the other day and when I read it, I laughed myself silly! Time to pay it forward… hope you all get a giggle out of this too!

The following proverbs were collected by a first grade teacher.  She gave her class part of an old proverb and let them fill in the rest.

As you shall make your bed so shall you …… mess it up.

Better safe than…… punch a fifth grader!

Strike when the…… bug is close.

It’s always darkest before…… daylight savings time.

If you lie down with the dogs, you’ll…… stink in the morning.

The pen is mightier than the…… pigs.

An idle mind is…… the best way to relax.

Where there’s smoke, there’s…… pollution.

Happy the bride who…… gets all the presents.

A penny saved is…… not much.

Two’s company, three’s…… the Musketeers.

Don’t put off to tomorrow what…… you put on to go to bed.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…… you have to blow your nose.

Children should be seen and not…… spanked or grounded.

If at first you don’t succeed… get new batteries.

Now that’s funny!  I sure do love children!  Hope you all enjoyed!
