First Graders Humor

Velma sent this one along to me this week.  When kids mangle a saying, it’s usually for a reason, and this time it was to get me chuckling.

lst Graders

A 1st Grade School Teacher had twenty – six students in her class.  She presented each child in her classroom the first 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-years-old, because the last one is a classic!
