ABC Teach (Review)

logo

Anytime you google "free printables" of the educational kind, you can pretty much count on abcteach being on or near the top of the list!   abcteach boasts over 5000 FREE printables!  In addition to the free items, paid members have access to over 35,0000 items!

Here is a sampling of some of the teaching aides you'll find at your fingertips.

  • Flashcards

  • Theme Units

  • Learning Center Activities

  • PowerPoint

  • Clip Art

  • Languages/ESL

  • Prek/Early Learning

abctoolsis another fabulous feature that allows you to create your own customized worksheets using the worksheet generator templates.

While reviewing my free 30 day membership for review, I took the opportunity to create several unit studies using the abcteach site.  The first unit study is on Thanksgiving (no big surprise there I'm sure).  I was happy to see that items pertaining to the Wampanoag tribe were included in their resources!  We'll be starting this unit the last week of October.

The other unit study I created based on lots of abcteach printables is the solar system, to go along with the lovely model set I bought for $3 at a discount store!   I was pleased to find printables that are appropriate for both my 1st grader and my preschooler.    I won't be using this unit until after the fist of the year, but lets be honest folks...my free membership expires next week and I do not currently have the funds to purchase a membership...so I made good use of my time!

I realize that not every homeschooling family loves and/or uses worksheets, and that's ok!  There are other resources available at abcteach that may enhance your learning experience.  If you are a worksheet family, you'll definitely be able to get your money's worth out of your membership.   I've outlined the cost for you below:

$40 per user per year / $70 two years — individuals/groups 2-9
$35 per user per year — groups of 10-29
$25 per user per year — groups of 30 or more. **SUPER SITE LICENSE pricing available for groups of 100 or more. Contact support@abcteach.com for details.
