These hot dots cards are a wonderful way to learn the alphabet. This product is a great educational tool to use at home or in a PreK classroom. The set creates many useful teaching moments that benefit children who are learning the alphabet. My children love using the hot dots pens with different hot dots sets and the Alphabet Cards are a great addition to our collection. My younger child (4) was given simple directions in the beginning and was able to work independently using this set to practice the alphabet. The directions were simple enough that when he needed help, my older child (6) could read it to him and give him assistance. My children already knew their alphabet when we tried this product, but they still enjoyed using it to practice their knowledge. Children who don't know the alphabet or letter sounds yet would benefit most from the learning experience if parents did the set alongside them. I would recommend this product. *I was provided this product in exchange for an honest review.*

My children love the Hot Dots alphabet cards. I am a pediatric occupational therapist and it is a great activity to work on grasping, visual discrimination, letter recognition, form constancy, and visual motor integration skills. For parents it is a great activity to work on independent learning and play, as the pen provides feedback as to whether or not the chosen answer is correct. My kids love when it lights up and makes a sound. If you want to do this activity in a quiet area, you can even turn the sound off and just see red or green lights to notify the child if the chosen answer is correct. The only thing I would change would be to have an option to only provide positive feedback (lights and sound) when the chosen answer is correct versus providing lights and sound for incorrect answers as well. I believe this would encourage increased attention to the task in a more desperate attempt to receive the auditory and visual feedback on the first attempt. Overall, I would recommend this product!
Great ABC learning for Pre K and Kindergarten!

I really like how this product gives me an additional way to teach in my classroom! The cards are great for helping the children to review and in some cases learn to identify various colors! The only con that I have found in this product is that the cards can be bent or damaged easily. I wonder if they can be laminated!!??? The children in my classroom like the counting card set most of all!
A great way to learn through review!

I really love using all of the Hot Dots Jr. products in my classroom because the children use these products with great ease and not much instruction. The Shapes card set does seem to be the most simple for the children so they quickly switch to another set of the cards but they are still very useful for matching and recognition!
Great set mid-level Beginner
By Amy @ Oh So Savvy Mom

About Me Parent
The Hot Dots numbers & counting are a great mid-level intro to numbers and counting. This set is great for children who have a basic grasp of counting and can identify at least a few numbers visually. My son began using this set when he could visually identify numbers 1-5 and verbally count up to 15. I think that, unless you are an extremely patient parent, if you tried to introduce these cards to a child with no number knowledge you'd just get a very frustrated child.Ace, the Talking, Teaching Dog Pen doesn't come with the set, but can be purchased separately, and is very fun for the kids...sometimes too fun. Occasionally, when my son doesn't feel like doing anything he'll just press all the wrong answers because he thinks the incorrect sounds are funny.*I was sent this product at no cost to myself, in order to provide a review of it on my blog, Oh So Savvy Mom.
