I’ve always wondered about the 35,000+ printables available to members … were they really worth the cost of admission? Well, I got to spend a month poking around on their site for free and found some wonderful things.
Here is a sampling of the resources to be found in the abcteach member area:
- unit studies
- file folder games
- science diagrams
- learning centers
- writing prompts
- poetry guides
- tons of seasonal/holiday activities.
Many of these types of activities can be found in the free section, so you might be wondering what good a paid membership would do you. Well, I’ll tell you in one word: customization. You can design your own worksheets, puzzles, notebooking pages, shape books and copywork.
There are several different fonts to choose from. This is a big deal to me because I have one child who uses traditional cursive, one who uses HWT cursive, and one who is still in manuscript print. I can easily whip up a copywork page for all of them in the style they prefer. You can try out the abctools here.
The Nitty Gritty:
$40 for 1 year / $70 for 2 years **buy through Homeschool Buyers Co-op by November 30th & get 50% off your membership!!
Things I Like:
- There are so many activities from which to choose.
- Many of the pages have multiple uses.
- The ability to customize!!!!
Value: This will depend on the individual, but for me it is worth every penny if the only thing I ever use it for is making copywork sheets. (But I will be using it every week for all of the seasonal/holiday fun.)
