        I am a first grade teacher and my students love these! They are very easy to use and help the students to become independent learners. I like them so much that I plan to get more sets of cards.

          Comments about Hot Dots® Jr. Phonics Fun:

          My 5 year old really enjoys learning and so he was really into this set! The cards included lessons to reinforce learning the alphabet, letter sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blending of sounds, digraphs, and more in an interactive and fun game format! Each card features a lesson such as find which pictures begin with the sound made of s and n blended together. Then the pictures each have a black "hot dot" below it that the child can use the Ace talking pen on to see if they selected correctly or incorrectly. Incorrect answers gently encourage your child to try again without making them discourage! It was great to have my son review and practice lessons he'd already mastered as he learned how the Hot Dots system works. Then, he was ready to move on to recognizing the difference between long and short vowels and blended sounds and it was great to be able to work with him on those concepts in a fun and easy way!

          Disclosure: I received this set for free to review on my website, A Mom's Take. Opinions are my own.
