KB Teachers - A Great New Site - TOS Review
KB Teachers (Knowledge Bear)
Great for PK-12th age children, all ages
$29 per year, or $49 for two years
As a member of the The Old Schoolhouse product review crew I recently received a free premium membership to KBTeachers to use in exchange for an honest review of the product. No further compensation was received. (What a timesaver this one was!)
Wow, KBTeachers is awesome! This site is great for teachers and parents looking for new teaching tools and materials. They don't charge per download or per workbook. For a low yearly or monthly fee, you get full access to all of their content and services--which would easily cost you much more elsewhere.
Even better, before you join, you can preview the entire library, and after you join, you have 30 days to cancel your membership and ask for a refund. If you go here to visit the site you can set up your free no risk 10 day trial with PayPal or use your credit card with a 30 day money back guarantee.
For Parents, Teachers and Educators this invaluable site offers worksheet generators and alphabet factory,
unlimited numbers of printable activities for all ages and grade levels, unlimited access with no watermarks,
graphics and clipart for use on websites, blogs, activity sheets, etc... The available choices are numerous, with answers keys available. The site regularly updates and adds new features and member created content every week. Another plus, nothing to download--instant access (great timesaver if you're on dial-up internet)! Where else can you find handwriting practice, math worksheets, detailed information about food pyramids, grammar lessons, a dinosaur workbook, and seasonal clipart in the same place?
Site content is based on standards set by * NCTE, * NCSS, *NSTA, * NCTM and * ISTE, (whew, say that three times fast).
As a KBTeacher you get access to an online community and can diversify your educational materials. There are sections covering English, Math, Science, Biology, Social Studies, Seasonal, Crafts, Clipart and more. This site is colorful and engaging, just like the printables you'll find there. There's an online newsletter, and you'll find KBTeachers on Facebook too. If you can't find something there's a request option too.
Taking into account all that I've mentioned, this really is a great option. I'm glad this product came my way at a time when I was looking for the "extras" for my children. I really like the seasonal options and worksheet generators. My kids are having fun and learning. It's great for my 13 year old and my 5 year old, and of course this 29+ year old! You really should check out this site when you have time. The cost is pretty reasonable considering all the options available. For other reviews of this product click here.
