Chances are, if you’ve ever searched on-line for a free coloring page or a free worksheet, you’ve found something at abcteach. They offer over 5000 free worksheets for preschool through jr. high.

But I was not prepared for the 35,000 worksheets available from the members area of the site. Wow! Rather than list them, you can see the complete list of categories, watch a short video, and see some sample worksheets at the benefits page.

One of the things that I found the most useful on the site are the custom worksheet generators.There are step-by-step tutorials, demonstrating how to use the generators. Some of these worksheets include crosswords, word searches, word walls, sudoku, math, and handwriting. The handwriting pages are available in a variety of  fonts including Handwriting Without Tears. That one specifically caught my eye since that it the handwriting program we use.

Membership costs $40 for a one year subscription. I think that is a reasonable price for someone who will use the site consistently. However, though I found some things that I thought were neat, I didn’t find enough on the site that made me think I needed to subscribe. But, as a confessed curriculum junkie, I’ve got more homeschool curriculum in my house than I can come close to using this year. (and next!) And I don’t really design any of my own studies. I think this site could be used to save a lot of money on curriculum by someone who uses it in place of purchased curriculum. You could generate all your own handwriting and copywork sheets. There is a tonof clipart that could be used designing lapbooks or notebook pages. I think a unit study family might find the site valuable as well. So while I don’t personally think I would use the site much, I think there are a lot of homeschoolers who would benefit from a subscription to abcteach.

To see some of the thousands of worksheets available, visit abcteach.com. You can read more reviews of abcteach at the Crew blog.
