Oooh! I’m soooo excited I can barely stand it! One of my favorite companies, Educational Insights, has asked me to do some fun reviews and giveaways which I know you will all love! YAY!
As you all know, we absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Educational insights Hot Dots around here! The cute little cards and interactive pen makes learning so much fun! I even did a post awhile back about them here!
The Hot Dots are fun colorful cards that reinforce skills with the use of a fun interactive pen! When your student clicks on the “correct” dot the pen will flash green and say “Great Job” or “You are Correct”, if you get the wrong answer the pen will flash red and say “Sorry, try again!” They also have a new set for young kids along with a cute “Ace” the dog pen. His eyes light up green when they’re right and he barks!
Even the Teeny Tot comes running when we pull out the Hot Dots! Though, I’m not sure she’s learning much LOL!
My new favorite set of cards is the Hot Dots Jr. Getting Ready for School set! This set of cards comes with 80 double sided colorful cards and a very cute “Ace” the dog pen! They encourage your children to practice key learning skills including colors, letters, numbers, shapes, patterns and more!
We also have Hot Dots Jr. Alphabet Cards. They include 72 alphabet activities including uppercase/lowercase and letter sounds practice.
Educational Insights sells several different pre-made cards, or you can purchase Educational Insights Hot Dots with Talking Hot Dots Pen, and make your own cards as well! You can also download the cards I’ve made here:

I liked them so much I liked them on facebook!
My little girl would love the gettinng ready for school set too!! I’m following you on facebook!
I have never seen these before! I’m new to Early Childhood Learners (I’ve been teaching upper level Elementary Resource for a LONG time) & I know these would be great for all my SpEd kiddos in my PPCD classroom!
Thank you for all the information about the HOT DOTS! I think these will be great for RTI in my Kindergarten classroom! I would LOVE to have the $39.00 Phonics set. Thank you for offering Hot Dot cards to download. I subscribe to you at firstname.lastname@example.org
This would be a fantastic learning tool for my class of little learners!
