Sierra's teacher makes a book for the parents for a Christmas present every year. The book is called "Words of Wisdom," and is a book of idioms -with a little twist. Thought I would share life's lessons through the eyes of first graders.
A penny saved is... a doll.
You wear your heart...in your body.
You can lead a horse to water but...it will run away.
You scratch my back and... you scratch baby's back.
Can't see the forest...because there's a secret force field.
I can have my cake and...share it with my brother.
The squeaky wheel gets...squeakier.
A watched pot never...burns up food.
Better late than...to go to bed.
It's bark is worse than... a baby's scream.
Don't bite the hand that... is a person's hand.
Don't put all your eggs in... a fish bowl.
Beggars can't be...good.
You can't judge a book...cause it can't do anything.
As you make your bed so shall you...get dressed.
Up a creek without a...lake of water.
A rolling stone gathers...what I can't.
When the cat's away...they run.
A picture is worth... 25 cents.
Don't make a mountain out of...books.
The bigger they are...the smarter they get.
A stitch in time...is quick.
All that glitters...makes it sparkle.
A bird in the hand...said "cheep cheep." It meant hello hello.
Don't cry over...the couch. Please don't cry!
Out of the frying pan...came a talking waffle.
It has been cold in the mornings lately. The other day our elf Rintue, overheard the girls saying how their hands and ears were so cold they tingled while they waited for the bus. Rintue usually leaves pennies or little candies in their slippers when they are good, but the next morning they found hats and gloves on their slippers instead. They were pretty excited.
