    Hi all,

    I was wondering if any of you subscribe to any of the teacher sites (edhelper.com, abcteach.com, etc.)?
    If so, are they worth it? Which ones are the best?

    Thanks! :D

    My school has subscriptions to quite a few of those sites, which allows all teachers in the building to access them as much as we want. I think ABCteach is pretty good. I've found quite a few good reproducibles on there. I had a TeacherVision subscription some years ago and I was reasonably satisfied with it, but didn't renew.

    Teacher Toolbox

    I've recently subscribed to Evan-Moor's Teacher Toolbox. So far I have been really pleased, but I tend to like all of their stuff anyway. I've also done Enchanted Learning and A to Z Vocab. I subscribed to enchanted learning about five years ago for a year, but my login and password still work. I don't use it much except for holiday printables.

    I enjoy edhelper. I don't use it a LOT, but it's great for grabbing a quick activity page or something - especially for days that I'm out and the kids will have a guest teacher.

    I have a subscription to edhelper and I enjoy it. I have heard a lot of good things about Enchanted Learning.

    I have enchanted learning, edhelper, and evan moore. I find them especially helpful because I teach 6 grade levels and I don't have textbooks for most of what I teach.

    I also have Evan Moor File Box, Ed helper, and abcteach and I love them all. A free website that had good math worksheets is softschools.com, you can get really specific on the value of the problem. They also have other subjects you can choose from but I have never looked at them.
    They are also a good option if you don't have a lot of personal teacher workbooks to pull from.

    I also suscribe to Evan Moor's Teacher Toolbox and I love it!!! It's kins of expensive ($10 a month) but completely worth it when you consider how much one of their books cost at Lakeshore ($13).
    It gives you unlimited access to all of their resources. Yes, you can download a whole book! Lots of resources on the Civil War, American Revolution, Matter, Periodic Table, Human Body, Reader's Theater, etc.

    My school has BrainPop and BrainPop Jr. Those two are awesome sites. Also United Streaming is the BEST SITE IN THE WORLD!!! I love it!
    I have teachnology.com and don't recommend that one. It was $30 for one year, but they NEVER change any of their stuff, so it was great the first week, and after that I am very disappointed. I had enchanted learning and that was good, too.
