      Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 1 Reading:

      My 7 year old grandson needs special help being interested in reading. This toy did the trick. Usually he will read 3 or 4 short pages, then loses interest. With this, he stays connected for about 30 minutes at a time. He really likes that the pen says different things, not just yes or no.

        Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 1 Reading:

        I received Hot Dots Let's Master 1st Grade Reading and Language Arts to review with my first grade classroom. My students love this product! They can work independently or in a small group. The books are small and spiral bound, so they are easily stored. The wands glow green for a correct response when the student touched a correct answer, and red when touching an incorrect answer. The wands can also be easily programmed by the students to be silent, low sound, or loud. There are two levels of materials for students to use, so I can my differentiate instruction. During Daily 5, students can use the Hot Dots to practice short and long vowels, vowel digraphs, consonant blends, consonant digraphs, "rule breaker" vowels or special vowels, sentence sense, plurals, comprehension and silent letters. I am very pleased with this product, and highly recommend Hot Dots for center use, small group instruction, home schooling, and also for parents to use as added support or enrichment at home.

        My 6 year old was having some difficulties reading basic sight words. I tried many workbooks, and activity book but nothing seemed to help until we received Hot Dots Let's Master Reading Grade 1. This system contains a fun pen that requires two AAA batteries (not inc.). The pen works by positively reinforcing your child's answers. They have to answer certain questions in the lessons. Each question has an answer with a black dot. To answer, you child simply needs to hover over the right dot.

        Now, my daughter is reading at her grade level in just 3 months time thanks to this very interactive system. There are so many lessons too so it really helps keep kids entertained.

          My son loves playing with the Hot Dots Jr. sets. This Hot Dots 1st grade reading is going to be so great for him in the near future. After looking through the book I know what kinds are things are coming up and can watch for him to be ready for this book in case it is before 1st grade. I want my child to be an accelerated learner and with the help of Hot Dots I know he can be. This pen is a great motivational tool. Lights and sound good off when an answer is chosen. This will help my child be able to do the books on his own in the car or at home. Moving from one Hot Dots book to the next is going to be so helpful in my child's education.

            Hot Dots Let's Master Reading is such a fun and easy game for kids to play both independently and with a small group. The packaging is easy to keep organized and both the pen and book fit back into the original box. As a classroom teacher it is important that the kids can access the materials by themselves and with this product there is nothing to worry about. The book covers many reading skills and the directions are also easy to understand and read, so my students can be even more independent! If you are looking for a gift or a classroom resources this would be perfect!

                    Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 1 Reading:

                    We started with the Hot Dots Jr Kindergarten reading set and now are moving onto this Hot Dots First Grade Reading set. This set includes 2 spiral-bound books and Hot Dots Jr. "Ace"-the Talking, Teaching DogTM interactive, electronic Hot Dots pen. This set is very challenging for my son, but a challenge is good.
                    It works very simply. There are black dots next to each question, my son then picks and answer and places the Hot Dots pen on his choice. If he is right the pen turns green and gives him positive reinforcement. When he gets the answer wrong the pen turns red and tells him to try again.
                    My son just loves to learn and these sets are really taking him to the next level.He is excelling in his academics and he is always being praised by his teachers. I would not trade these sets for anything and I really recommend them!
                    The set is very colorful, durable and I think it will last a very long time!

                      Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 1 Reading:

                      I received Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 1 Reading free for review. All opinions are my own.

                      Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 1 Reading 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 1 Reading books cover topics such as phonics, sight words, reading comprehension, punctuation and grammar.

                      My oldest is in 1st grade and this is a great supplemental reading tool for her. She can do the book independently and loves to bring it along when we are in the car. She can also bring it with us to waiting rooms because it has the ability to adjust or mute the sound, but still light up to let her know if her answer is right or wrong. My daughter is an independent learner, so this is an extremely attractive learning tool for her. She spends at least 30 minutes a day with her Hot Dots set, and that's of her own choosing.

                      Overall this is a great supplemental kit for teaching first grade age kids reading. 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. I recommend this kit to anyone with a first grade aged child. It's a great introduction to reading for them.

                        My grandson really enjoyed Hot Dot's Let's Master 1st Grade Reading. As with the math he liked going through the book with me sitting there although he could do most of it himself. He went through the books for about 25 minutes before even suggesting he wanted to be done. He liked that the pen would let him know rather he was right or wrong. I think this set is educational for learning and also as a confidence booster once they have read through a few times and know the answers.
