I subscribe to a lot of newsletters – a LOT – almost 200 per day. While I do not get to read all of them every day – I do take time on the weekends, early in the morning over a cup of coffee, or late at night after everyone has gone to sleep. It is what I call my “quiet time reading” that I think everyone should set aside time for each day.
Today in my Better Homes and Gardens Free For You Newsletter, there was a small article entitled, “Dawn Helps Save Wildlife.” You would have to be living under a rock to have missed the Dawn commercials showing how their product removes oil from helpless wildlife who have been caught in oil spills. It continued to read, “Dawn will donate $500,000 to help save wildlife this year. Click Here to become an Everyday Wildlife Champion.”
After I clicked the link, I was taken to the Dawn Junior Wildlife Champions page where I clicked “Like” and another page then appeared that asked me to join the movement to educate 1 million students about wildlife and to Click Here for FREE wildlife education and activities from Dawn Junior Wildlife Champions and Discovery Education.
So I did. And I was completely amazed. There are sections for Administrators, Teachers, Parents, and Students. I love the parents section because it has some truly great free parent resources, in addition to sections entitled, “Homework Help,” “Motivation Station,” and “Step-by-step WebMath.” It took me all of 3 seconds to bookmark this website for future use when school begins again this fall!
You can go to the main website – www.discoveryeducation.com – and register as a new user and then login for more specific educational resources.
If you have children in school – from kindergarten through 12th grade – I highly suggest checking this site out. It will quickly become a favorite for you and your family as well!
