Comments about Hot Dots® Laugh it up! Math Vocabulary Cards, Grades 4-6:
My students absolutely love this resource. First of all, my students are all learning disabled, English Language Learners, so vocabulary is a huge challenge for them. Each vocab word has a double-sided card so they can see how it might be phrased differently, depending on the question. It also is accompanied by a great visual cartoon that supports their memory and understanding of the term. Once the student has chosen their answer, THEN I give them the Hot Dots pen to check their answer. (So as to avoid them just playing with the pen and clicking every answer). The Hot Dots pen gives a visual and auditory response to let kids know if they were correct or incorrect. It so novel and different for them, that they are totally engaged in doing the problem so they can answer with the Hot Dots pen.This product is a real winner for reviewing key vocabulary, not to mention it is Common Core aligned :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Math as fun as it can get!

About Me Education Oriented, Parent
Works far better than those boring math or reading workbooks! He didn't understand all of the cards, as he is a bit younger but tried them out anyway. Of the ones he did understand, he loved doing and they're great for visualizing the problem at concept level. Cards are nicely colored,with a picture and math concept or question (they are two-sided) and the question is cleverly linked with the 'content words' or 'associated visual cues' to assist the child in answering the same.The red/ green light and sounds encourage as usual and help monitor progress!Comes in a handy box and is great for travelling too. Would recommend!
