KB Teachers changes regularly with emails coming in to tell you about new worksheets and activities available on the website. This is an added benefit to keep your activities fresh and for $29 for 12 months that great value.

Topics Covered:

For This Season
English Language
Maths Activities
Science Workbooks
Biology Worksheets
Social Studies
More Activities

All these topic heading have a variety of subheadings for you to explore. However explore you must. There is no search box for you to quickly explore what they have available, which makes it very time consuming having to click in and out of every heading in a bid to find what you are looking for.

Is It For Me?

Well perhaps not. It is heavily American based which is fantastic if you live there. Money, season's (I know we have the same seasons but opposite) it just means that you can't take advantage of the new things that are added regularly because in the time we have had the subscription not much of it has been relevant to us in Australia. We have used the maths worksheets a lot though and lots of the worksheets for Lucy who is 5.
the other really disappointing part for me was the lack of Language arts worksheets. Things like er, ir, ing, phonics/blends etc worksheets. That is the sort of things I could really use more of. If there was any of that included then this site would be a winner for me.

They have a lot of free worksheets for you to look around and print for yourself so have a look and see what you think.
