Super Teacher Worksheets #Printables {Review}

Super Teacher Worksheets Review

Over the last several years I have spent a lot of time following blogs and saving printables that I have found here and there, but often there are so many things I find that are an individual charge and not necessarily a great worksheet once I get down to it. Therefore, when I heard about a website where you can get a lot of things for free, but pay one fee for access to the whole library of resources I was wary but intrigued. Members of the TOS Review Crew have been blessed to receive one-year access to Super Teacher Worksheets and given an Individual Membership. I’m not usually one to state prices in my reviews, but a year is only $19.95/yr and that is way less compared to any other site when you add up all the possibilities!  This is a website filled with printable resources in these categories: Math Reading &. . .

The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs by Dr. Robert T. Bakker

Renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker and award-winning paleoartist Luis V. Rey combine forces in this oversized picture book about the evolution of dinosaurs. From the conquest of land by dino ancestor Acanthostega during the Devonian Period, through the mass die-off of dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period, Bakker and Rey take readers on a safari through time while paying subtle homage to the 1960 Giant Golden Book Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Reptiles that inspired them both as young dinophiles. With stops along the way to look at monster bugs, ferocious fin-backs, fluffy dinosaurs, sea monsters and the 12-year-old girl who discovered them, dinosaur orchestras, tickling tyrannosaurs, and much, much more, this is a journey readers will never forget. It’s a perfect gift for young dinosaur lovers-as well as adult fans of Dr. Bakker and Luis Rey!
