Proverbs

On Friday I did a mini lesson on proverbs with some of my third graders in the afternoon.

They were given a paper that had the beginning of well-known proverbs and they had to fill in the ending (or make it up, if they didn’t know the actual ending). There are some hilarious answers and I just had to share.

Don’t count your chickens and their eggs.

Do as I say and not what bullies say.

Don’t count your chickens pox.

Bad news travels everywhere.

No use crying over homework.

Do as I say and not talk when I talk.

Don’t count your chickens count numbers.

Ask no questions just come.

Ask no questions have no answers.

No use crying over me talking.

Do as I say and not disobey.

Don’t count your chickens everyday.

Ask no questions if you don’t have an answer.

Honesty is the truth.

Bad news travels through your ears.

Do as I say and not disagree.

Bad news travels when you sleep.

Honesty is the best goal.

Do as I say and not get hurt.

Don’t count your chickens or get poked.

Where there is a will you must make a wish.

Don’t count your chickens by yourself.

Where there is a will there is water.

Bad news travels to my house.

Do as I say and not get in a fight.

Ask no questions ever!
