    So sad that this site is a paid site now. I knew it was too good to be true. This was a great site to get resources from. I might pay for it when I win the lottery! :p

    It has so much more now than it did when it was free. I pay the 20 bucks a year for it. To me, it's worth it.

    My colleagues and I pooled our money and I purchased the site in my name. We share the user name and password. It only cost us $5 a piece.

    Wow, this is the first I've heard of this site...looks promising and $20/year isn't too bad. :)

    I agree, it's worth it to me for the $20 a year...

    I especially like the seasonal activities to use for morning seatwork.

    Yes, good idea, but I have no one to split the cost with. :(
    I'll have to really see if I could really use it, being an SLP that I am.

    Sounds good to me, thanks!

    One year, my mentor teacher bought me a subscription to another site for Christmas-it was the best gift ever! Just wanted to throw that out there for those of you who can afford it!

    If it was MY own user name and password, I would share, but it isn't so I don't feel comfortable sharing it.

    I agree that this does make a nice gift...if someone wants to pay $20, that is.

    Again, someone can share their username & password if they want! :p

    Thanks for the FYI. At the school I'm at this year, they're pretty low, so the material would still work.

    Love it! Last year and the year before our team each bought a subscription to some sort of teacher resource sight. We shard the passwords. This year I moved to kinder so I won't to many worksheets but I am keeping my super teacher subscription. It's got a few things on kinder level that I like.

    Sharing logins would be against membership policies. At $20 a year, one would certainly get their money's worth. It's not wise to share such information. I'm a little surprised that anyone would ask for personal logins from a paid member:2cents:

    For what it's worth, edhelper is another subscription site that I (regularly) reccommend highly.

    Yes, I'm biased... I did lots of freelance writing for them years ago. But the owner is a great guy who really cares about putting out a quality product for a very reasonable price. They have a number of freebies, but are well worth the subscription cost.

    Ms I and ec, kc has a great idea: if a subscription isn't in the budget, why not ask for it as a Christmas gift?

    Isn't it kind of wrong to let people share memberships? You're taking away from their business that way. I thought Scholastic had a problem with this recently. $20.00 is really not that much to spend on something so useful, is it? Just asking.

    Yup... They have some free samples & you can see (with a watermark) the other worksheets!!!

    It is a super nice guy & his cousin who run it. They tried to keep it free, but with anything...if this is your business you need to be paid as well!!!

    Just coming into this thread after a while. :)

    So... have we established if it's wrong or right to ask for user names and passwords?

    I can't tell. ;)

    :) I believe the subscription my mentor bought for me was edhelper!

    My vote is wrong. Does anyone remember the Great Scholastic Book Flier Scandal of...what was it...2008? 2009?

    I think it's wrong. I don't find finding one or two activities for a close colleague or showing them a subscription site, but wouldn't share my password. I have let friends know when a site is having a membership sale or special promotion so that they can save a few dollars.

    Agree MrsC.
    We all do it when scholastic is having their dollar deals (tell each other)...but I'm not sharing my stuff with everyone!

    Hehe, sorry if my post sounded like I was calling for a vote. ;) After three or four posts saying that it was wrong (over and over again), I was just offering some humor (tongue-in-cheek) about that.

    It's like when several of my students tell me they want a story...after eight or nine times, I will say, "Okay...just so I'm clear...do you want a story or not?" ;)

    It's true. Sometimes a colleague will ask to borrow a book I purchased (like from Evan-Moore, etc.) and I let them because I don't want to be a "teammate who doesn't share", but part of me feels wrong...

    But the question can carry on to movies, etc. right?

    "May I borrow your Titanic blu-ray?"
    "Um...I would let you but by doing so, I'm taking away a sale."

    How many of us, when we were younger, would record a favorite song from the radio so we didn't have to purchase it as a 45 (I'm showing my age, aren't I?!) :)

    LOL! I remember making my first mix tape and thinking it was the coolest thing that I had a cassette of different songs from different artists.

    My students would laugh at me, I'm sure. ;)
