Wild About Hot Dots

My students need Hot Dots pens for additional opportunities for independent learning and explorations within curricular aligned activities.

My Students

My students were once identified by a previous administrator as "dying on the vine." Their particular demographic automatically places them within "at-risk" categories. But what people do not see that faculty and staff at my school see every day, is the hard work and dedication that my students possess. They possess perseverance to continue on when time after time they are doubted! They possess good hearts that care deeply about not only their academics but arts, classmates, music, sports as well!

My Project

Hot Dot Talking Pens cans provide independent learning experiences for students. With these pens, my students can become engaged with activities that are aligned to state standards and provide immediate feedback.

Hot Dot Pens Talking Pens will encourage my students to deepen their understanding and provide meaningful opportunities to analyze text and computational tasks.

My students will have the tools they need to be successful in various types of learning opportunities. This in turn, will be able to increase my students academic achievement in not only Reading and Math, but all other subjects as well. Thank you in advance for your investment in the lives and success of my little learners!
