Mere suggestion
Hello everyone! I�d like to make a humble suggestion. I know I haven�t been here in a loooooooooong time, but I do come in from time to time. And I find wonderful worksheets and resources. 
But.... sometimes I find these wonderful worksheets so difficult to read, because the size of the font is so tiny! Sometimes it�s put at 8 or 9... sometimes even 7. I assume the creators do this in order to fit many exercises in just one page, but believe me, it�s not practical. 
I mean, for example, if I download a worksheet with tiny font, it is veeeeery time consuming for me, to be re-organizing the exercises in another word document in order to enlarge the size of the font. sometimes, it takes up to 3 pages to make all the exercises readable and writable (where students have to answer)
I would suggest not to crowd up the page with so many exercises. if needed, make 2 pages. But have the text be READABLE, WRITABLE, AND PRINTABLE... if I print as is, the text is so tiny my students aren�t able to read it. 
In advance, I thank everyone for their hard work, and creativity!
Sending hugs to all!!!!

Hi Maria,
It�s good to hear from you, I hope all is well with you.
I agree, tiny font size doesnt really do anyone any favors -- I usually try to stay at 10pt minimum on my worksheets.

I agree totally. For me 12( Aria) is the limit.
