Educational Insights Hot Dots Giveaway!

Hi everyone! I have an awesome giveaway for you all today! Educational Insights has come up with some new Hot Dot cards and a fun new pen as well. And today I have some of them to giveaway to you all!

Since we’re working on the human body this year, I chose the Human Body Science Cards. What a fun way of reviewing and practicing all of the parts and functions of the Human Body!

For those of you who haven’t heard of Hot Dots before, they are educational cards with dots on them. When pressed on the dots, the special pen registers whether or not the answer is correct or not.

The pen then lights up green and dings for a correct answer, or red and buzzes for an incorrect answer.

We also chose some Vocabulary Cards, these particular ones help practice Synonyms.  Here is a close up of what some of the cards look like. This set comes with 50 double-sided, illustrated cards that cover synonyms for grades 2+. They have 6 interactive vocabulary card sets which include antonyms, multiple-meaning words, prefixes and suffixes, context clues, and homophones.
