A first grade school teacher in Virginia had 25 students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom 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, keep in mind that these are first graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

1. Don't change horses...........until they stop running.
2. Strike while the................................bug is close.
3. It's always darkest before..............Daylight Saving Time.
4. Never underestimate the power of ......termites.
5. You can lead a horse to water but ..... how?
