Great Independent Learning Activity Set

Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 1 Reading:
This Hot Dots set is geared towards children 6 and up. However, I think it would be a great gift for a child interested in reading at an earlier age. In fact, this could make a great "Welcome to Kindergarten" gift. This set includes both the Hot Dots Pen and two Reading and Language Arts books. (2 AAA batteries are not included but are easy to install.)My first grader received this as a gift and though he is already a strong reader, he still enjoys the included activity books – especially the second book. Book One covers short and long vowels, vowel digraphs, and consonant blends/digraphs. There are also a few vowel related review pages in Book One. Book Two moves onto special vowels, sentence sense, plurals, capital letters, punctuation, reading comprehension, and wraps up with a challenge section.Living in a busy household I appreciated that the Hot Dots pen had the option to totally mute the sounds. The child still knows whether or not s/he selected the correct answer by looking at the light on the pen. Red means try again and green means great job! The pen plays fun phrases and silly sound effects too. The parent can easily choose to hear speech, sound effects, or a mixture of both. This feature is nice for answer reinforcement. I also like that this set can be used by the child independently. I have a houseful of children, so it works out well to set my first grader up with this activity while I work with another one on homework, cook dinner, etc.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My son loves playing with the hot dot books he doesn't even realize he's learning too. My only negative comment would be I wish it would read the words on the page instead of just giving you sounds.

Satisfied and would give ten stars
I bought a few HOT DOTs products and we use them all almost daily. My youngest daughter is six and she has issues sitting and listening to the topic. Quickly gets boring. With HOT DOTs products, it changes completely. She sits, goes through activities and learns even not noticing the whole process. After repeating multiple times she just knows it. I like interactive stories and cards. Ages, specified on the box are really appropriate for that age :) I will be buying more. If you have one type of a pen, it will work on all HOT DOTs products. I thought it wouldn't :)
