There are several simple spelling errors in your post. Perhaps you could read it through more carefully before posting.

My suggestion: "I want you to print out the material on the site, and we will go through it together to get a better understanding of the text."

After revisiting your post, bosun, I see that you may be asking what the teacher would say once the students have printed out the material and brought it to the classroom. In that case your sentence, with the corrections I've made, would be fine.
