teAchnology website review (Free worksheets)

teAchnology is a website that specializes in providing teacher-made worksheets for educators.  That have 30,000 free worksheets, and for a seasonably priced prescription, you can have access to online worksheet makers and online interactive games.

Let's start with the free worksheets.  What homeschoolers wouldn't want free worksheets?  Right?

It took me a while to find the free worksheets area, so let me lead it to you.  Start out on the main page of Teachnology.com  Click on the words " 9,000 free printable worksheets"  in the first paragraph on the first section of the page.  This will take you to the page for Free teacher worksheets.  You can now choose the worksheet you need by subject.  When you get to your chosen page, for example, in my case, Printable Geometry Worksheets, stick to the text links.  The photos of the worksheets at the bottom will take you to the paid prescription page.  

Now there's nothing wrong with going to the prescription page, it does add extra value.  However, if you want to try out the site first, you will follow my steps that take you to the free worksheets.  They will give a good idea as to what you can expect on the subscription site where you can practically access full workbooks!  From the time I spent viewing the site, I can tell you that if you choose to subscribe, you will not need to purchase any other worksheets or supplemental materials for your homeschooling needs.

Whether you choose the free worksheets only, or the paid subscription, you will find  worksheets for grades k-12 and all subjects such as language arts, math, science, social studies, and holidays.   I also noticed that the for the worksheets I most needed, such as the Algebra and Geometry packs, for high school students, a subscription is necessary.  The worksheets I could access for free, however, are well done and appear to be be good educational exercises.   Also, I did find the free math worksheets  and vocabulary worksheets to be very useful.
