I have heard of Hot Dots but not had an opportunity to try them until now. We were sent the Let’s Learn Grammar set, which included the Talking Hot Dots Pen and three activity books. I was very impressed as the pen worked with the activity books straight away, we had no need to download from a separate website wasting precious time and energy!
The boys could just enjoy learning at their leisure and without any real attention from mummy! The pen lets them know if they have answered correctly by lighting green and red if an answer is wrong, so they soon pick up lots of new skills as they work through the carefully structured activities.
I thought my eldest who is 7 was quite capable at reading but approaching grammar is a whole other ballgame, working through the activity books I can easily see the gaps in his knowledge and address it with extra help. To be honest I am learning a few things myself which is a slight concern given the pack is aimed at 5-7 year olds, obviously I could do with a brush up of my grammar skills too!
I think the testament to just how much I liked the idea of Hot Dots and all the activity books was the fact I placed a rather large order this morning for lots more products, spanning different subjects like time, money and science!!! I do not think hubbie was too keen on my mad Hot Dots spending spree but if it helps the boys get a good start with their education then I think its money well spent. At the very least it seems to keep them preoccupied for a bit and out of mischief, so I am really looking forward to my delivery arriving.
