How We Print All of the Homeschool Curriculum

Print it all with HP Instant Ink

{Note- this is not a sponsored post, I bought our printer on Amazon and pay full price for Instant Ink. My Instant Ink referral link is used in this post. I have also used affiliate links for the products linked in this post}

Homeschoolers print a lot. We use a lot of ink. For our family, HP Instant Ink has been an incredible solution for our printing needs! We have had this specific printer for over 2 years now and it is still going strong!  It’s an HP Deskjet 8610, it is here on Amazon. I am using HP’s Instant Ink service and love it!

One of the BEST things about Instant Ink – each page counts as 1 page no matter how much ink you use! If you are printing full color pages this makes the subscription a HUGE savings! I wish I had this service back when I was printing loads of Tot School and Preschool printables!

HP Instant Ink -18

 

There are many HP printers that are compatible with Instant Ink, here’s the list from their site. Be sure to double check yourself on their site before purchasing. I copied this list in May 2017.

  • HP ENVY 4500 Series
  • HP ENVY 5530 Series
  • HP ENVY 5660 Series
  • HP ENVY 7640 Series
  • HP Officejet 4630 Series
  • HP Officejet 5740 Series
  • HP Officejet 8040 Series with Neat®
  • HP Officejet Pro 6830 Series
  • HP Officejet Pro 8610 Series
  • HP Officejet Pro 8620 Series
  • HP Officejet Pro 8630 Series

The basics of Instant Ink…

You sign up and they send you a starter pack.  When you use my referral link we BOTH get a free month of Instant Ink!!! You wait to install the starter pack until your initial ink runs out.  Your Instant Ink subscription does not begin until you install the first instant ink cartridge.

The printer connects wirelessly to HP and automatically tracks your pages printed and how much ink you have left.

New ink is sent to you before you run out, you don’t even have to think about it! The ink sent to you is “free” as it is included in your monthly cost.

 

Monthly Plan Options…

I am now on the $9.99/month plan for 300 pages. This also means I can roll over up to 300 pages to the next month if I don’t use them. I can go over 300 pages if needed an pay $1 over 25 pages. Below you can see the different monthly options.

If you are in need of a new printer, I highly recommend getting an HP printer that is compatible with their Instant Ink subscription service.

Learning ideas to go along with the tracing printables ~

  • At the beginning of each new month, trace the name of the month, the year, and color the focus picture.
  • Each new day, trace the number and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to write in each month to create a pattern.
  • At the beginning of each month go through and mark the special days {holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or anything your family celebrates}.  Have your child decorate those special dates so you can look forward to them!

Learning ideas to go along with the dot fun printables ~

Calendar-3016

 

  • At the beginning of each new month, color the focus picture. If your child doesn’t like to color, color together…make it fun!
  • Each new day, dot paint the day, or use a dot sticker and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to create a pattern.

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!
