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.



You can also purchase Educational Insights Hot Dots with Talking Hot Dots Pen, and make your own cards as well! I’ve made a few for early learners here:

    I LOVE this idea and had not heard of Hot Dots before. I would love the Human Body Hot Dots, because we are currently working on learning about the human body over the summer and through school next year.

    • I have been wanting to try these. I would probably get any of the reading ones or math ones.

    • Michelle M. says:

      I would love to have a set of the Hot Dots Human Body for our workboxes this year! I’ve been looking at the Hot Dots but have yet to purchase. Didn’t realize that they had Human Body cards….our science study for the coming school year.

  46. Kim Hubert says:

    I would enjoy any of the HotDots cards, but especially any of the ones for Kindergartners. Probably a phonics set. We have a K and 2nd grader this year along with a preschooler.

    Also, how do they work with your homemade hotdots? When I print them off how do they ‘work’ with the pen?

  47. Sabrina says:

    I’d love the Hot Dots Jr Phonics set. Thank you!
