Mirthful Monday - Grade Three Wisdom

A Grade 3 teacher collected well-known proverbs.  She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.
  • A penny saved is............................not much.
  • Two's company, three's..................the Musketeers.
  • Don't put off till 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.
  • You get out of something only what you...........see in the picture on the box.
  • When the blind leadeth the blind...........get out of the way.
  • Better late than .........................pregnant.
