Welcome Shannon and take it away!!!
Hi my name is Shannon and I have a blog Welcome to our Wonderland where I love to share books and activities to go with the children's books. I taught Pre-K for 11 years and became a stay at home mom 10 years ago when my oldest was born. I've been blogging for a few years and besides writing on my blog, in the year 2009 I was a featured writer for Totally Tots having 2 weekly features: Now I Know My ABC's and Once Upon A Book. I left at the beginning of this year since I no longer had tiny tots : I had a Preschooler. Now I'm a stay at home mom, teaching preschool to my 4 year old and blogging whenever books I can't wait to share come my way.
My girls, Gidget(4 years old)and Froggi(9 years old) love Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Manatees and other marine life so I thought this would be a gentle way to teach them what it means to have an oil spill and what can happen to all the sea animals they love.
Gidget did really well with this lesson and really understood what was happening to
the sea life. I was proud of her and LOVED this Everyday Is Earth Day lesson!
Green Step: We bought Dawn so we could activate our code and donate 1 dollar to the
"Save Wildlife Fund" they have.
Green Website: Dawn Saving Wildlife: for every bottle you buy 1 dollar goes to saving wildlife. For over 30 years Dawn has been used to clean wildlife after oil spills.
For a Messy Outside Alternative: My girls got out all their marine mammal’s and they coated them in mud, then they took them to the cleaning station: one with clean water and one with a towel to house them after they are clean. They had their Dawn dish soap, Q-tips, soft wash clothes. This has been a huge hit and the girls have played it often!
