Cute Things Kids Say: Proverb Contest Results

"When it’s raining cats and dogs, become a duck."

Every week, classes have an opportunity to win a shout-out for their school with our Week in Rap Shout-out Contest. This week’s contest highlighted our African Wisdom song, and asked students to write their own, original proverbs. Without further ado, the winner is:

After dragging a sled up a hill, you get to enjoy the ride.

  • Bored? Watch Flocab.
  • When life gets you down, make a comforter!
  • Leaves are alive, but they always die.
  • I have people, but I have no rice.
  • When it’s raining cats and dogs, become a duck.
  • Gold is better than silver as intelligence is better than no intelligence.
  • Internet affects intellect.
  • Sports & love have something in common. They both require devotion.
  • If you wear a tie, don’t wear it too tight… It’s awful.
  • I’ve decided to stop crying when I get in trouble because all it does is make my eyes all puffy.
  • Life is like music, sometimes it is like a melody, sometimes not.
