The idea here is that before teaching proverbs, I try to get students interested by allowing them to play around with the sentence beginnings. Tell them to create their very own proverbs from the prompts in a freestyle way. It´s a good idea to encourage them to create not just wise ones, but funny ones, too. Having fun will increase their motivation even more. By letting Ss make up their own proverbs, they´ll be in a much more open state of mind to receive the "real" proverbs, because of the fun they had in the first game. Bless up, Kisdobos :)

The above downloadable handout is best suited for high school students at Pre-intermediate (A2) and Intermediate (B1) level. You will find the solution at the end of the worksheet.
