Great Language Arts Supplement: Grade 3
from Omaha, Nebraska
About Me Education Oriented, Homeschooler, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
I received Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 3 Reading free for review. All opinions are my own.Hot Dots Let's Master Grade 3 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 3 Reading books cover topics such as reading comprehension, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, context clues, spelling, punctuation and grammar.The 3rd Grade Reading books are similar to the 2nd grade reading books, containing reading comprehension passages and questions that are just a step more difficult. These are harder to read, but still appropriate for 3rd graders. There are some pictures available to help the kids form context of the words they are reading, but for the most part they are required to understand what they are reading to progress through the books. I love that there is a great mix of language arts concepts in each book including grammar and vocabulary. Overall this is a great supplemental kit for teaching 3rd grade age kids language arts. 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 3rd grade aged child. It's a great educational tool to teach language arts to them.

We received the Hot Dots 3rd Grade Reading set and are very pleased with this product. My son loved the fact that he had his own pen with sounds to choose his answers with. He spent a lot of time using the Hot Dots set and was eager to read on his own in order to find out whether his answers were correct or not. We will definitely be purchasing more Hot Dots items.
Keep them learning Reading with fun.

Reading made fun!
By Miss Frugal Mommy
My 8 year old daughter has become so excited about reading lately and we encourage it daily. Hot Dots has played a big factor in her success, with its fun and engaging approach. This is a great way to help your child build up their vocabulary, confidence and reading skills when they are at home. This is so much more than just a reading practice book, it also contains over 100 lessons that will help your child with reading comprehension, Synonyms & Antonyms, as well as punctuation and grammar.
Fun and educational toys are the best

We received the Hot Dots Let's Master 3rd Grade Reading set for review purposes. My daughter is not in 3rd grade yet, but we have had great experiences with the Hot Dots sets for the younger grades so we decided we needed to have them all on hand for future grades. They are fun and educational, and all of them are right on target with the skills they should be learning in those grade levels. I love both the math and reading sets from Hot Dots.

My daughter LOVED this!!

This product was great. My 8 year old daughter hates to read or even do anything in the subject of reading or phonics, and this book she loved it. Its not like they are having to study or do homework, My daughter thought we were playing a game and she didn't want to put it down. Even my 10 year Olsson that has ADHD wanted to play and he was very interested also, and he usually loses interest in things very easy. I would recommend this for kids andkids with ADHD also because it really does keep there interest there always excited to see if they got the answer right or not. As for the pen I reallylike how it talks and knows if the kids got the answer right or wrong. I think all moms and dads should give this a try for there kids. I will be getting more of these for my other kids.g
She really liked it!

About Me Grandparent, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
I love Hot Dot's Let's Master 3rd Grade Reading. It is like a drop of school at home, in their own environment. My granddaughter really liked going through it the first time then liked it when we went over it for practice. She likes to predict what her pen will say. She is more advanced so her favorite part was the advanced lessons they include.I received this product for an open and honest review.
Great fun to supplement learning!

About Me Parent Of Multiples (Twins etc), Stay At Home Parent
I think these products are a really great way to supplement math and reading lessons in an enjoyable and engaging way. I have two third grade boys who spent about 30 minutes playing with Hot Dots Math and Hot Dots Reading the first time we tried the product. They loved using the "pen" and the comments of encouragement amused them. One kind of raced through the math book to find the problem he considered fun (more challenging). The other just worked through the books page by page, occasionally skipping something he thought was "boring," because it was something he'd mastered, or too challenging. I think the books reflect the third grade curriculum very well.The next time we went to use them, they were less interested because they said it felt too much like extra homework. But when I insisted, because I wanted them to get more practice in the areas where they could use some help, they enjoyed the process.I would recommend these products as learning tools, but I would not present them as "toys" or a "game" to third graders because, at least with mine, they think I'm tricking them into just doing work. When I said we would do 10-15 minutes of Hot Dots for extra practice, they were happy to do it.
