Okay.. come on now. SuperTeacherWorksheets.com isn't free anymore? How sad is this? Anyone else disappointed?
What a horrible thing to wake up to on Monday morning..
A comment from the owner:
Well we certainly didn't want to let our visitors down. Unfortunately it's a choice we had to make. There are two of us working in a small office - myself and a graphic artist. Together we've spent thousands of hours sitting in front of computer screens, making thousands of worksheets. For five years the worksheets were free - we got by on just the ad revenue. But last year we lost a lot of money - money from our own pockets. We have office rent, utilities, computers, phone lines, hosting, and other costs. We also buy graphics from freelance artists, stories and articles from writers. The costs add up quick. We needed to start charging or go out of business.
We're looking at this as an opportunity, though. With a little income we can make more woksheets, higher quality resources, and grow the site to be better than ever.
At $20, we're still cheaper than any subscription worksheet site I know of. Abcteach, Enchanted Learning, Scholastic, all charge quite a bit more for accessing their sites.
Sorry if we let you guys down - but it's something we had to do. I hope you'll consider giving the site a chance in the future.
My post about STW is with all respect. I understand you have to do what you have to do:) I've supported this website when it was free and I will continue to support it. Well worth the wonderful resources it provides! I think everyone can agree on that.
