What I Liked
  • 1,000 of worksheets at my fingertips!
  • I can generate different math pages with answer keys multiple times.
  • The coins in the money worksheets were very realistic.
  • The kids enjoyed having worksheets to do outside of our school time
  • Print button directly on the page, for easy printing.

What I Disliked
  • There is no search option that would have made it easier to find the specific worksheet I was looking for.

What B (boy, age six almost seven) Liked and Disliked: I liked the addition up to 20 worksheets. I liked that I could check my own answers when I was done. I liked the counting money worksheets, because you got to match the name of the coin to what it looks like. I think KB Teachers would be good for kids my age.

What C (girl, just turned five) Liked and Disliked: I like the math worksheets, because I know that 4+0=4. I liked the fall add across. I agree with my brother about the counting money worksheets. These worksheets are good for me! I think kids my age would like the worksheets.
Other Products Available: None at this time.

I would recommend KB Teachers to teachers and parents who want to give kids a chance to learn even more. For more reviews on KB Teachers go to The Homeschool Crew review page.
