A first grade teacher had twenty-five students in her class and she
presented each child in her class 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 these keep in mind that these are first
graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is classic!

I actually think that last one is kinda sad. What kind of atmosphere has that FIRST GRADER grown up in?

Am I just too old fashioned?
