    Comments about Hot Dots® Lets Master Grade-2 Math:

    My kids were all recently gifted Hot Dots Sets for reading and math for all three of them. So far, these sets have provided hours of fun and engaging learning experiences for my kids, and a ton of quite time for me. Since the magic battery operated pens that selects the dots is not an actual pen, my kitchen table has stayed clean! The magic pens requires two AAA batteries so I suggest buying quality batteries if your child will be using this a lot.

    The lessons are premade but there are tons of them that mix things up. My kids have not finished the entire set yet because they have only been mastering two lessons per day.

    I love Hot Dots, and would recommend them to all! Plus, they are very cheap..like $20 for a great learning resource!

      Comments about Hot Dots® Lets Master Grade-2 Math:

      My 6 y.o. has enjoyed working on math with his new Hot Dots Grade 2 Math set. The stylus is easy for him to use and provides immediate feedback on how he is doing through the use of phrases, sounds, and lights. The following topics are covered in the two included booklets: Place Value, Numbers (expanded form practice, even vs odd), Patterns, Math Vocabulary (addend, difference, sum, fact family), Addition/Subtraction Facts, Length, Telling Time, Data & Statistics (graphs, charts), Geometry (shapes), Number Sentences, Algebra, Story Problems, Counting Money, Fractions, as well as a Challenge section that is a review of all the child has worked on in the two books. Whether at home or on the road, this is a good way for kids to pass a bit of time while learning something in the process.

        Comments about Hot Dots® Lets Master Grade-2 Math:

        Let's face it, 2nd grade was a long time ago for me and I can't exactly remember what I was learning. Having Hot Dots refresh my memory on what kinds of things my son will be learning helps me know what to work on with him in daily life as well as in the Hot Dots Math book, like money and measuring.
        Problems in the book build on each other, getting harder as you go further in the book. This is nice because my son can't just sit down and complete the whole book the first time. He has to work to master each section before he can move on the the next. I like that with the help of the talking pen he can either do it by himself at home or on the go or I can sit down and go through things with him. This is a great activity to keep him occupied while at the "boring store". Learning in a fun way is a great way to encourage continued learning outside of school.
        Hot Dots are great for kids!!

          Comments about Hot Dots® Lets Master Grade-2 Math:

          So I have to admit that getting the grade 2 Math box did not make my oldest as happy as the Preschooler who got the princess box. It is, after all, a school toy. No fooling her :).

          Inside a sturdy box was a Hot Dot pen and two spiral bound math books for Grade 2. You will need 2 AAA batteries for the pen; they aren't included. The books are sturdy for repeated use & feel like laminated cardstock. The books cover counting, place value, time, geometry, fractions, measurement, math facts, money, and algebra concepts.

          We have just begun second grade math and there were items that she had not yet covered but were in her math curriculum. I did like that there were vocabulary words we had not heard previously like expanded form. I also liked the challenge section at the end of book two which made the child think about using more than one step to solve problems.

          Because most of the books 100 problems are story problems, they should be a proficient reader. It's a great tool for assessing where a student is proficient or where they may need more practice. You do need to sit near because I the pen is not fully in the circle, it will not register properly. My 4 year old has an issue with this but my 6-3/4 year old only does when she's being sloppy or just wants to hear it talk and so picks every answer.

          If they need extra practice but drill & kill is making them nuts, this is a good alternative. Or if they like math & are adept at figuring things out on their own, try getting a set or two at a higher level and see what happens. Like the others, you can add any Hot Dot/Hot Dot Jr book or card set & the pen will work with them.

          I would highly recommend this Hot Dots set!

            My grandson asked for Educational Insights Hot Dots Let's Master 2nd grade math after using the reading book of the same. I like that it has many different kinds of math mixed in. He doesn't get bored. There are 100 lessons and the same awesome pen. He is good in math so the extra more difficult problems make him hungry to learn them. He spends about 30 minutes with the 2 books and pen. I received a sample in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

              Comments about Hot Dots® Lets Master Grade-2 Math:

              I received this set for the purpose of this review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

              My son is good at math, but he has not been doing well on his math tests. I was looking for a way for him to practice that would not feel like more homework. The Hot Dots Let's Master 2nd Grade Math set has been great.

              He loves the electronic pen that tells him if his answer is right or wrong. It uses sounds, music or words to give him the answers, but the sound can also be turned off, with just a red or green light telling him if he has the right answer or not. I appreciate this for traveling or when his siblings are trying to do their homework in the same room.

              Even though this is second grade level work, my two older girls are so intrigued by the talking pen that they have been known to "disappear" with the pen and the book for a little remedial practice of their own.

              Overall, I am pleased with this set as a way for my son to develop his skills at home and hopefully perform better on his math tests in the future.

                      I received Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 2 Math free for review. All opinions are my own.

                      Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 2 Math includes an interactive talking Hot Dots Pen and two Hot Dots workbooks. The workbooks include questions, and multiple choice answers with a black dot next to each possible response. Your child will use the Hot Dots pen to select an answer by vertically pressing down on one of the dots. If the answer is correct a positive reinforcement will be heard and the pen will light up green. If the answer is wrong, a try again message will sound and the pen will light up red. The Grade 2 Math books cover topics such as patterns, time, shapes, fractions, measurements, math facts, money, place value, and beginning algebra.

                      The 2nd Grade Math books contain a lot of word problems. There are some regular math problems, such as addition and subtraction, but much of that is gone over as word problems. This will reduce the independence, but will still help the kids learn how to determine how to solve problems like this in real life. We already do things like this verbally, so it is a great way for the kids to see similar problems written out. There are also math terms to define in the books which helps the kids make sure they are comprehending the language of math. Sometimes I find they know what they are doing, but they aren't as familiar with the language. This will help solidify those skills as well for communicating with others in terms of math.

                      Overall this is a great supplemental kit for teaching 2nd grade age kids math. The pages are durable and made to last through repeated use. These books can be used as a teaching tool and as a review for previous concepts to reinforce those ideas as needed. I recommend this kit to anyone with a 2nd grade aged child. It's a great educational tool to teach math to them.

                        This is a great way to help introduce or work on 2nd Grade Math Skills. The Hot Dot pens continues to allow kids to have fun while learning and take the "Educational" feel away from the lessons. They will enjoy the technology use and relish their accomplishments.

                        We received the Hot Dots Let's Master 2nd Grade Math set for review purposes. My daughter is only in 1st grade, but math is her favorite subject aside from art. Since she already knew most of the information in the 1st grade set, we decided to get this set as well. It is just above where she is now, so it will be great for pushing her math skills to the next level. This set requires a lot more reading than the 1st grade set as well, so it is good for showing her why reading skills are important to math too.
