How to Save Paper in the Classroom
Do you have to track how much paper you use each month? If you are reading this blog post, I am guessing you do.
For now, I won't get into my thoughts on restricting the use of a necessary element of education, and instead, I will share with you some ideas on how to maximize your use of the paper you have.
My favorite tool for maximizing paper is Adobe Acrobat. I use the free version, and so can you.
1) Open a .pdf file using Adobe Acrobat.
2) Go to print.
3) Select the pages you want to print.
4) Select "Multiple" under Paper Sizing and Handling.
5) You can print two or four pages per sheet.
This reading passage works great printed on one sheet because students have all the information they need to answer the questions on the other side of the page.
Mini-books are helpful when introducing a new topic or reviewing. This fractions book contains all of the third-grade fractions standards.
I hope this blog post was helpful! Post your favorite way to save paper in the comments!
