Glow In The Dark Slime| Easy Monster Slime for Halloween

Halloween is almost here! My son, Cory, is excited because he likes to dress up and go trick or treating. He also likes to do spooky science experiments and art projects. This year, his friend asked how to make basic slime. This request sparked a new idea which is making Glow in the Dark Slime.

Cory took this idea a step forward and decided to make a Glow in the Dark Monster Slime. This project is so fun and easy to do. You only need two ingredients to make the Glow in the Dark Slime which are glue and slime activator. You may also use food coloring, but this is optional.

After making the slime, Cory played with it for a while. He stretched, pressed, kneaded, and balled it up. Then he decided to make the slime into a monster. We used pipe cleaners and googly eyes for this step.

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!
