Saving Ink and Paper
Now before I begin, I need to let you know that your printer may be slightly different, but all of the printers that I have come across are similar.
First, decide what you want printed smaller. Many items from TPT or other places can be printed smaller to save space. I have some sound posters that I hang in my guided reading area for my kids to refer to if they need them. I usually have 3-4 letter sized posters hanging up. But I often find that I need to review older sounds with some of my kids. So I printed my sound posters four to a page. This is the size comparison:
So, how do you do this? Easy peasy! Open up your document and chose the pages you would like to print. Next look for an area on the print setup that relates to page sizing. There should be a multiple button to click. Once you click on that, you can usually choose how many pages your would like to print on one page. I usually do 2 or 4 to a page, depending on the activity. For my sound posters, I did four to a page.
Once I printed them out, I sorted them into sound groups, put them on a binder ring and then hang them up near my guided reading table. They come in handy every single day!
