Has anyone used this before??? I have used ABCteach before and my subscription for it will be expiring and I do not plan on renewing it, don't care for it as much as I did when I first signed up. I am liking what I see a lot on edhelper, but I don't want it to turn into something like ABCteach that I don't use.

I bought a membership when I veeeeery first started, but I didn't use it. I didn't see anything useful after I got into it, and in fact, I found a lot of mistakes. Every worksheet starts to looks the same after a while, too. There's really no variety. If you're looking for something in particular that you can't find on a free site, go for it. I just didn't think it was worth the membership AT ALL!

I used it when I was a public school teacher. It was a great help when I needed a worksheet to help my class with a concept or practice spelling words. As a homeschooling mom I can do the same things for one or two without spending the money!

I was just curious as to what their literature units were. I wasn't able to get a preview of them at all, but from what I have sen on their site, it pretty much sucks. They "have" a free area where your supposed to be able to preview some of their sheets, but when you click on it it takes you to the sign in page. So, I am just going to bypass them. I am just looking for some literature units to go along with some of Whitney's books to give a variety on what we are doing.

That wouldn't be bad, looks it has lots of variety. I have a the sandwich book report pattern and a couple of others, so that might be a nice addition to use with what I have already.
