    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math Set with Ace Pen:

    My grandson is 2 1/2 and I purchased the Phonics, PreK Math and Reading Kits. I wasn't sure he was old enough yet, or would be interested at all, but thought we would try them as playing cars and trucks on a daily basis gets old for Grammy fast. He is a slow talker, but his motor skills are keen, so he was able to hold dog pen straight up and pin point the black dot he chose for his answers. At first he was mostly interested in touching every dot with the pen,But when hearing the dog speak, bark, and carry on he waas correct with answer delighted and got the idea. Because I hope he finds learning fun, we don't use these books and flash cards unless he request, as he is so young. His favorite is the math pre K espically the time story sequence. These are a great addition to supervised playtime for parents and caregivers, I am very pleased with my purchase.

      My son who just turned 5 loves this set. He loves counting, shapes, numbers, and all of that and so this is more fun than work for him. The dog is a great partner for him as he learns and goes through the books (there are 2 50-page books) and the set has really helped him remember more and learn faster than before. He is in preschool, but this is a great at home resource for us. Great for traveling as well.

      My daughter just started Kindergarten this year so I wanted to make sure I got her some fun learning tools other than boring workbooks. I find kids love to learn with interactive things but I do not always like her on electronics. I prefer more hands on and that is exactly why I love the Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math set.

      This set features a fun and interactive blue dog pen which requires two AAA batteries not included. To engage, children have to touch the pen to the dot to select the correct answer. There are TONS of lessons, included in the two books which has been keeping my five year old VERY busy!

          Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math Set with Ace Pen:

          I have 5 year old twin boy and we own a few other Hot Dots Jr sets but this one seems to be their favorite! The interactive pen, "Ace", is adorable. My kids love using him! And he can be used with the other sets too, which is great! (Although "Ollie" the talking Owl is another adorable pen that comes with the other sets, making the choice of which to use quite difficult for a child. Ha!)

          I am very pleased with the quality of the box. It is very durable and has a strong handle allowing it to be carried and stacked by the kiddos without getting easily destroyed. The two spiral bound books are also durable and laminated. They are very nicely laid out with colorful pages and just the right amount of content on each page.

          My kids have enjoyed working through the pages of both books. I really like how the books progress in skills. It allows my boys to have fun while learning but also challenges them without getting frustrated. Because of their age and their lack of ability to read the instructions themselves, I did have to guide them through the activities the first few times that they used the books. In my opinion, it was just another way for me to monitor what they could do and keep track of their progress.

            We sit down every night with one of the books that comes in this series with the intention of doing only a few pages, but always end up doing the entire book. I use it as a supplement for homeschooling my daughter and she thoroughly enjoys it. I love seeing her face light up when she gets a question correct and even when she misses she is determined to sit and think about what the answer could be. I also like the fact that there is sequencing and shapes not just numbers. The only thing I would suggest is possibly suggest is to have a Dog wand for the math set and Cat for the reading set so you don't have two of the same wand like we do.

              Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math Set with Ace Pen:

              My daughter is a very reluctant learner. Her preschool teacher sent home flashcards for her to practice using her numbers, but neither of us really enjoy learning that way.

              When I gave her the Hot Dots, Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math set, she was excited to get Ace the Talking Dog for her very own. Act uses sounds, music and/or words to encourage her when she gets the answer wrong and to praise her when she gets the answer right.

              Even though there are written instructions that change every few pages, she has been able to figure out pretty quickly on her own what the objective for each question is. This has let me be less involved and let her be more self-directed (and self-motivated!) to learn and practice on her own. Because the questions vary, she doesn't get bored as quickly and easily as she does when she has to do flash cards.

              Overall, I would recommend this to others whose kids don't want to spend much time practicing numbers and other math concepts using traditional methods.

              (I received this product in exchange for writing a review. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions are purely my own.)

                Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math Set with Ace Pen:

                My 2.5 year old son likes this a lot! He likes to learn and prefers educational toys over others. He loves using the Ace the Dog pen but it needs to be treated carefully. I am constantly reminding him it only goes in the book. I like that Ace tells him if the answer is correct or incorrect. This allows him to learn without me constantly saying no. I appreciate that the books are spiral bound...makes it more durable for excited little hands. My son loves taking these books in the car. It is an activity he can do in his carseat and doesn't make a mess! It is a little hard for him to do it alone though because he doesn't understand all of the instructions just yet. Although he uses it in the carseat he doesn't do as well with it like he does when I am sitting next to him explaining what each section wants him to do. This is a great way for kids to learn without them feeling like you are forcing learning on them. Tools that teach in a creative way will always be a win in my book! My son isn't in preschool yet but he will be way ahead of the class when he starts. Thanks Educational Insights!

                This has been a great learning tool for my pre-school aged son and he really enjoys using it. Hot Dots Jr. does a very good job at creating content that is both engaging and fun for children. I could not be more pleased with the results I am seeing and improvements my son has by because of using this!

                  I received Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math free for review. All opinions are my own.

                  Hot Dots Jr. Let's Master Pre-K Math includes Ace the Talking Teaching Dog Hot Dots Pen and two Hot Dots workbooks. The workbooks include questions, and multiple choice answers with a black dot next to each possible response. Your child will use the Hot Dots pen to select an answer by vertically pressing down on one of the dots. If the answer is correct a positive reinforcement will be heard and the pen will light up green. If the answer is wrong, a try again message will sound and the pen will light up red. The Pre-K Math books cover topics such as counting, patterns, time, shapes, fractions, measurements and basic math facts.

                  Both Pre-K Math Book 1 and Book 2 were pretty easy for my 4 year old. She had to spend time thinking about things before answering. The questions are read by an adult to her, and she was able to answer questions with few mistakes, but because she concentrated so much on it, I knew it was the perfect level for her to really work on mastering these skills. She loves the Ace pen and we also love that it can be used with any of the Hot Dots sets.

                  Overall this is a great supplemental kit for teaching kids math. The pages are durable and made to last through repeated use. These books can be used as a teaching tool and as a review for previous concepts to reinforce those ideas. I recommend this kit to anyone with a preschool aged child. It's a great introduction to math for them.
