So i was wondering if anyone coppies any of the work book pages to save it for the next child?

I was wondering about this, because i will three that will be in a row grade wise, and I was wondering if i could just get one work book and copy the pages i need? It's my luck that i order a package love it, and the next year they don't have the work books i need to teach it again.

anyone do this or is this just a crazy idea? I don't want to buy three of everything at a time, for money reasons and again my luck i have three workbooks and decide that i don't like the program and switch to another one..

What do you do if you have children close in grades/ages?

Some workbooks (like Math-U-See) have a copyright notice that says you cannot copy the pages. Others say it is okay. We don't use much consumable stuff since we use Sonlight. I figure the Explode the Code and Wordly Wise books are cheap enough that it's no big deal to just buy new ones for the next kid. The Sonlight activity sheets specifically allow for copying within the same family and we do copy the language arts one (we do the science ones orally).

I plan on doing this in the future when I start using more expensive curriculum but right now Explode the Code, Handwriting without Tears, etc. are cheap enough that I don't mind buying new ones for each child. I don't want to spend my entire life photocopying! But I know I will definitely be doing some of it in the future.

With my older son, I have him write the answers to things like his Bible study on a separate sheet of paper so I can reuse the workbook. Other things - like math workbooks and such, I just rebuy them. It would take me more time, money, and effort to do all of that copying than it would to just consume and rebuy.

I have been making copies for a while, but I decided for next year I'm not going to mess with it anymore. It's really alot of hassle when you're copying for 3. If you think about it, you'll probably end up spending more in the long run on paper & ink than you would just buying a new student book. *shrug*

I haven't copied from the main books...but I have thought of having Elijah start doing any writing work in notebooks next year.

The way I see it is ink is $30+ dollars for up to 500 sheets. So it's savings is way to minimal for us.
