6-year-olds taking the proverb test... sooo cute!

A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students
in her class. She presented each child in her classroom
with 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!
