Borrowed blog post

I'm totally "borrowing" the following from Mel. Take the list and ask your kids for the "end" of the phrases/ Proverbs. She asked her 7 year old and got some interesting answers. (you can see it on her blog here) The list and answers would make a cute scrapbook page.

If you do this, I'd love to see the results. If you make a LO using the list, send me a link. I think I'll try it with my DS. Should be interesting.
