This is partly because of their frequency in everyday domestic conversation and partly because they are quite commonly mentioned in children’s story-books. As a result, children play with proverbs as they do with every other aspect of language.Teachers can rely on this experience to help develop their students’ linguistic awareness. One teacher gave a class of seven-year-olds a list of proverbs, left out the final word or phrase, and asked them to finish it off in their own way. Here are some of the results.As you make your bed so you must … mess it up.Don’t bite the hand that … looks dirty.You can’t teach an old dog new … maths.Where there’s smoke, there’s … pollution.A penny saved is … not much.Children should be seen and not … grounded.SEE ALSO Adults play with proverbs
