My students need hot dots cards for concept practice.
Very clever! Someone took the common science project of making a circuit board light up and invented Hot Dots. Hot Dots are low tech and high fun!
Aloha from na keiki o Hawai'i.
My preschool special education class provides early intervention services to qualifying special needs children. My class has 8 students, ages 3-5 years. My school is located in a predominantly rural, low-income neighborhood with a considerable portion of the children of Hawaiian and/or Pacific Island ancestry.
Hot dots, catchy name, but what are they? Hot Dots are "smart" flash cards. Using the battery-operated "pen", the student can practice numbers, phonetic and alpha concepts. When the child chooses an answer (generally from a selection of 3 choices), the specialized pen will light up green for a correct answer, or red if incorrect. Students can work on their own or with their peers, and it will be easy to encourage and monitor them as they engage and progress at their own learning rate.
I like to challenge my eager early learners with engaging opportunities.
We have a hand-me down Hot Dots color pack that the kids love. I would like to add this collection of Hot Dot cards and pens so that more children can use them to practice a variety of concepts.
