Best way to teach reading and keep them engaged!

We own a few different hot dots sets but I really liked this one a lot especially for my 5 year old. It includes a lesson guide which includes very helpful tips and activities. I have been looking for different ways to teach my 5 year old how to read and she doesn't like doing flash cards so this phonics set is the perfect way to teach her how to read in a fun way. There are 5 sets of cards that focus on different areas: short vowels, alphabet sound, long vowels, blends & digraphs & reading comprehension. My daughter stays engaged with this set and loves using the Ace pen to select her answer. I love that she is still learning while being home and I can help her how to read by using this awesome phonics set. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a fun way to teach reading.

It would be nice if the cards were bound or in a book form instead of individual.

The pen doesn't work

My daughter was so excited to use this, but the pen doesn't work. It says that she is right every time so it's pretty much useless. Disappointing on a Christmas morning:(

mommy dearest - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
When I ordered this I wasn't quite sure exactly how this product was going to be. I looked on youtube for reviews but couldn't really find one that showed how great this product truly is. We ordered it anyway. I ordered this set because we didn't have the pen. We opened our box upon receiving it, popped in batteries and we were already learning!! We didn't have to download anything to it, like other brands. It already knew the right and wrong answer! It came with a book to help guide you to have a successful learning session with your child. I figured the cards were going to be a little thicker than what they are, but that's okay. We will be purchasing more kits in the near future! My 5 year old son really loves hot dots!
