        Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 2 Reading:

        My son loves playing with the Hot Dots sets. I like that each one builds on the previous one. This is helpful so my child will continue to learn and grow rather than having lots or repeats. I like the 2nd grade reading books because they work on grammar and reading rules and not just how to read. I also like that it uses the same vocabulary as they are learning in school (like homophone). Not only does this help my son learn in addition to school but it helps refresh my memory on the correct verbiage so I can help my son rather than say things like, "These words sound the same but mean different things." Now I can say "These words are homophones."
        This pen is a great motivational tool. Lights and sound go 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. He loves learning and I love finding him "toys" that help him excel.

          Comments about Hot Dots® Let's Master Grade 2 Reading:

          My grandson isn't really into the homework he brings home from school. We don't treat Hot Dots like work. He plays with it (learning along the way) until he wants to be finished. This has worked out super because he is learning and challenging himself while feeling he is in control of the situation. I love that the pen makes reading more fun. I feel it is very age appropriate. He asked me for the Math version. I received a sample in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

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

              Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 2 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 Reading books cover topics such as reading comprehension, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, multiple word meanings, context clues, spelling, punctuation and grammar.

              The Grade 2 reading books are great because they move away from teaching reading in general to more of the contextual communication skills of reading comprehension and grammar rules for reading and writing. There are some multiple paragraph passages in the workbook the child will be expected to read, if they struggle an adult can always be there to help, however the words are fairly easy and it should be easily managed by a proficient 7 year old reader. As a homeschooler, I notice that many of these questions are formed in the style I remember from when I was younger taking standardized tests. This is a plus to me because it gives the kids experience answering questions in this format to help them out if they are ever in a situation where they will need to take these tests.

              Overall this is a great supplemental kit for teaching 2nd 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 as needed. I recommend this kit to anyone with a 2nd grade aged child. It's a tool for teaching reading comprehension and grammar for them.

                Kids will love to continue learning as they still get to use the pen for fun interaction. Skills developed will help prepare them for their next stage of reading and writing. Learning is made fun with all the Hot Dots programs.

                  We received the Hot Dots Let's Master 2nd Grade Reading set for review purposes. My daughter won't be in second grade until next year, but we have loved all of the Hot Dots sets so far, so we got the grade 2 and 3 sets as well. I looked through the books and as with the other sets, they look on par with the 2nd grade level. I'm looking forward to using this set with my daughter in the summer before second grade and throughout her second grade year.

                    This is a fun learning activity that does require 2 aaa batteries to start which are not included. You get 2 math books which teaches about punctuation, capital letters, contractions, homophones and more. I am really impressed. The interactive talking pen is great. Comes with different sound mode options. Choose from talking, music or silent. It lights up green or red so the sound is really not needed.

                      I am a Teacher and used Hot Dots Grade 2 Reading to assist students in the class that are struggling with reading. The students had no idea it was educational and thoroughly enjoyed the lights/sounds. It's great when the students are lining up to "play" with the game.

                      It was fun for the first time. We need to buy refill packs with new material for the kids to use. I think they will use it again and again as long as we keep up with their learning and needs.
