How Does A Diaper Work? | Learn Diaper Science in a Fun Way

Most babies wear disposable diapers because it is quick, easy, and effective for parents to use. Have you ever wondered how they work? My son wanted to know this answer after seeing his baby brother wear countless diapers. After doing some research, my son found the answer to his question, “How does a diaper work?” Today we will share our findings with you.

Science experiments are one of the best ways to answer children’s questions about how the world works. Kids are able to experience what they are learning in a hands-on manner.

The Diaper Science Experiment was fascinating because it is something we use daily on my baby son. My older son said it reminded him of magic. I definitely agree with this!

5 Fun Books about Grammar Rules for Kids

Exposing children to grammar rules is not the most interesting task for many people. Often kids learn grammar through workbooks, writing stories and sentences, and correcting grammatically incorrect statements. In this post, I will give you five (5) fun books about grammar rules for kids.

Did you know that it is very effective to learn grammar rules through reading? This is a fact. The more a child reads, the more they are exposed to grammatically correct writing in books. A great way to spice up your child’s learning is to give them entertaining books about grammar.

Let’s start with the first book…

This book teaches children about homophones (words that sound the same but have different meaning and spellings) and homonyms (words that sound alike and are spelled the same but have different meanings). Children will help the monkey solve his problems in this funny book.

Children will learn about suffixes by reading this book. This book has playful rhymes and humorous illustrations that creatively present the concept of suffixes for young readers.

 Mr. Wright’s class has a field day. However, nouns and verbs want to play their own games, such as tug-of-words and three-legged races. However, this task cannot be completed until  nouns and verbs demonstrate teamwork to make a sentence.

Your child will have fun learning about punctuation by reading this book. All the punctuation marks in the classroom have disappeared. Will they be found? What will the class do without them? 

Mr. Wright’s class is at it again! They think silent letters should be banned because they make spelling too tricky. However the unappreciated letters decide to go on strike and the class realizes how important the letters really are.

Bonus Resource

These 10 songs teach basic grammar rules (nouns and pronouns, adjectives, verbs, tenses, adverbs, and punctuation). Entertaining activities and crossword puzzles are included in the lyrics book to help reinforce learning even further.

I hope you liked these fun books about grammar rules for kids!
