Review for ABC Teach

TOS Crew Review

Product: ABC Teach membership

Price: $40 a year

What is this all about?

From the website:
  • Over 35,000 pages of printable worksheets, with more materials added each week!
  • Broad range of subjects and levels.
  • New materials added weekly to reflect current events and seasonal topics.
  • An extensive educational clip art collection that will add color to your classroom.
  • No advertising on the member site.
  • Customer service representatives who are always available to address your concerns and requests.

Overall impression:

I found this website several months ago and loved it. I was able to access many free resources. I printed out worksheets, tests and assignment sheets for my children. We used this as “extra” work in our daily school plan. The website says there are “thousands” of FREE printables available.

So why would anyone want to pay for a membership? Good question! There are many pages you cannot access without being a member. I cannot tell you how many times I have clicked on a subject or title of a worksheet only to find it wasn’t part of the free section!

However, once I received a temporary FREE membership, as part of my job on the TOS crew review team, I was able to see more of the site! There is so much to offer. I believe this is a very valuable resource for homeschool teachers. The cost is reasonable considering how much effort this company puts into their site!

My suggestion is that you use it for free as long as you can, then if you find it is helpful, go ahead and sign up for a membership.

Here are some of my favorites:

1. Create your own word searches.
2. Word unscrambles.
3. Math worksheet samples.
Rounding numbers.
Estimating sums.
4. Circle and Spell.
5. Crossword Puzzles.
6. Reading Comprehension paper (Passage to read and questions to answer).
