Hot Dots Jr. was designed for kids age 3-5. The Phonics Fun set that I tried out includes 160 interactive learn-to-read cards. I loved the variety in the level of difficulty in the card sets. You can decide which set of cards works best for each one of your students no matter what their learning level is. The cards and pens are easy to use so they are perfect for independent practice, literacy stations, or for word work if you are using the daily five. Your students will love the talking and teaching animal pens!! The pens give students immediate feedback on their work. The pens motivated Kylie and Jack to continue reading and keep working more cards which is what every teacher wants- for learning and practice to be so much fun that students do not want to stop. There are Hot Dot Jr. sets for teaching and practicing the alphabet, beginning Phonics, numbers & counting, colors, shapes, patterns & sequencing, beginning science, and beginning problem solving.
