Out of the Mouths of Babes

Pin It

A good friend emailed me this funny story. Neither of us knows from whom it originated. Perhaps someone out there in Blogland could help. I would love to give the author credit. The only clue is NSW (I am assuming New South Wales)... any Aussie readers know the origin of this charming tale?

A 1st grade school teacher on the mid coast of NSW had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom 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!
