Proverbs are a great way to have students practice looking for the theme in a story. They are usually short and it is usually easy to see the meaning or lesson within the proverb. With this lesson, we looked at several proverbs and discussed the themes behind the example proverbs. Then we completed this activity.
This product includes a class book. Each student gets one page with half of a proverb on it, then the students fill out the second half of the proverb and draw a picture to match their proverb. Students can be as creative as they want! then you can display the students work as a display for your class or you can make them into a class book. at the end there is a list of the original proverbs and a worksheet for students to practice finding the lesson or moral of proverbs.
