I don't know about you, but I have seen these Hot Dots all over the web. They are cards with multiple choice answer and a fancy pen that lights up when you choose an answer. Cute, right? But, to be honest, I thought that there was no way they would work in my room. They are WAY too babyish. Boy...was I wrong!
Educational Insights sent me a set of their Hot Dots for spelling. There are a whole bunch of funny jokes on the cards, with a word misspelled within the joke. The kids then need to find the correct spelling of the word. When they find it, they use the nifty Hot Dot pen to check their answer. By putting the pen on the black dot next to their choice, it either lights up green for the correct answer or red for the incorrect answer. There are also sound effects....which is what my kids LOVE!
What is great though is that there are a TON of different Hot Dots cards available from Educational Insights. I am eying the Comprehension and the 5th Grade Math Review ones as we speak. How much more fun will that be for the kids than just using a pencil and paper??!!
