Recreating Old Sayings

My students aren't very familiar with a lot of sayings -"two wrongs don't make a right", "the early bird catches the worm". As a different kind of writing assignment I gave them the beginnings of some of these old adages and asked them to finish them. They had: A rolling stone...., A bird in the hand...., and A stich in time..... I thought several of them had very creative responses. I was very surprised one of them actually referred to the rock band The Rolling Stones--thank goodness for the rock video games! :)
