Ok since Illuminations is a digital product, how much do you print out? I personally can’t stand excess papers (or even books) so I read all of the FSGs from my laptop. I read to the kids while they eat lunch and than orally ask them the questions. If there is a written activity it can be completed first thing after lunch. I do find that I need to print the RAGs and HSSGs for my kids. Yes, I print a RAG for each of my younger kiddos, sharing the book is about all I can get through 🙂 I do find the spelling lesson plans helpful to print. Do I dare say its a given that I print the grids out LOL. So I average about 3 pages for grids, 2 for spelling, 6 for RAGs and HSSGs. That’s a total of 11, but some weeks the RAGS and HSSGs go for 2 to 3 weeks, which then reduces my printing to 5 pages! Of course some weeks have extra GOs to print, but that averages 2 per week. Yes I do double side.
Now someone was getting rid of a pack of blue copy paper, so I have found it nice to print their grids on blue paper, thus standing out from other print outs 🙂 I love free stuff!
