The content is cross-curricular – drawn from science, social studies, and math – and each passage includes four multiple-choice questions plus a suggested writing extension activity. For use with the Hot Dots pen (sold separately).

    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots® Reading Informational Text, Grades 1-3:

    My daughter loves this set! She struggles with answering questions about what she is reading and I thought this would help her. She loves that the pen can talk and I think not having to tell me the answers gives her more confidence. She doesn't mind hearing that she's wrong from the pen. There are plenty stories so your kids won't memorize the answers quickly. With the push in schools for kids to answer information text questions this set is needed. Not only is it great practice, but it helps build their confidence.
