PRINTING: You will definitely not need to print all of this resource! There are more literacy centers included than you will likely use in a school year - so you can choose to print only the literacy centers that are the best fit for your classroom / students. Color and B&W duplicates for each of the literacy centers are included, and each longer file includes a table of contents so that it's easy to print ONLY what you need. Also, many of the literacy centers that don't require you to print anything (other than directions, if you like). This will help cut down on your paperwork!
