TOS Crew: ABC Teach

Mel participated in this review with the TOS Homeschool Crew.





Homeschooling sometimes involves stepping back and taking time to just review over concepts that are just not clicking.  Sometimes this takes a bit of creativity on my part as the Mom, and that can be one of the hardest things, is just finding a way to help make it click in their brains.  Recently, we were given the opportunity to review ABC Teach with the Crew. 




Photobucket
ABC Teach is full of worksheets and resources that can easily be printed off and used along with our daily lessons.  They have over 6,000 printables on their free side, and they have over 30,000 printables on their paid side.  That was a lot of resources at my fingertips.  

I bet you can guess which part I went into first.....yep, the math printables.  I was able to generate worksheets for Jacob to review his addition/subtraction facts.  I was even able to print off a quick game for us to play in math, Math Star.  We both enjoyed this game, and it just gave us some "fun" math time.   Now, not only can you just automatically print off a ready-made worksheet, but you can use the ABC tools to create your own version of a worksheet, and there are video tutorials on the site to help you do that.

ABC Teach doesn't just offer math worksheets, though.  They have many different categories that you can choose from for your printable needs, whether it be worksheets, clipart, games, or even teaching helps/resources.  Here are a few of the categories on their site for paid members:
  • Art and Music
  • Book Units
  • Border Papers
  • Clipart
  • Graphic Organizers
  • Handwriting
  • Holiday/Seasonal
  • Homeschooling and Parent Resources
  • Language Arts
  • Languages/ESL
  • Math
  • Montessori Materials
  • Shape Books
  • Social Studies
  • Think Green, Teach Green
...and there are many more categories.

Their free side also has many resources, including some of the following:
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Subjects, like Math, Phonics, Word Walls, Writing, Art, etc.
  • Holidays, Months, & Seasons
  • Homeschoolers & Parents
  • Flashcards
  • Fun Activities
  • Think Green, Teach Green
...and many, many more.

The worksheets come for all ages, Pre-K/Elementary Education/Middle School/Junior High.  A one-year membership is $40, and you can watch a video that will take you through what you would receive.  In my opinion, if your child needs the extra help with his subjects, or even if you just want to have these resources at your fingertips when you need them, then this is a wonderful site to join; but for myself and my family, even though $40 is relatively inexpensive, I would rather try to use their free resources and try to find other free online resources when possible, since it's important for us to really budget out what we spend on our homeschooling needs each year.
