I love trying new products that are fun and that I know our children would enjoy. Thank You Educational Insights for letting review the Hot Dots Pen and Learning Cards. We are very thankful:)
Our children love when they don't have to use the traditional way with sit down and workbooks. When I received the Hot Dots from Educational Insights they sat for an hour working on the human body learning cards. All you have to do is read the questions on the card and then use your learning tool to press lightly on the card to see if you got the answer right or wrong. You can always keep trying until you get the correct answer. Mistakes are opportunities to learn which I heard from the Sequential Spelling book.

This was are first time using the Hot Dots from Educational Insights and I'm very impressed with everything about the product. 

An interactive way for individual students to learn and practice key science concepts and vocabulary on their own. Six different science sets available. Grades 2+
36 double-sided illustrated cards (4.875” x 5.375”)—72 questions each!
Reinforces science concepts and vocabulary

Here is an example of one of the illustrated cards:

I love the colorful illustrated cards that engage the children while learning. Children need to see realistic pictures, Hot Dots pictures are pretty close to being realistic which I love. On each card there multiple choices answers which builds independence and fun learning. 

The Hot Dots pen works with dozens of Hot Dots card sets, providing instantaneous visual and audio feedback. Simply press the pen to choose an answer on any Hot Dots or Hot Dots Jr. card for an immediate response—cool, kid-friendly phrases for correct answers and gentle redirection for incorrect responses. Grades K+

Thank you Boomers for letting us join in on the blog event for our adventure. We had a great time. Some of the other things they have are go-carts, water bumper boats and putt-putt golf. 

Ducky riding the motorcycle video game. She is a cool chick:)

Dman cruising on the same game. Always a favorite with the boys. 

 No fear for Ducky on the Rock wall.  She did make it to the top. Both of our children love the rock wall. 

 Dman pumped and ready to make the climb to the top.  Success. They sent alot of time climbing this rock wall, up and down, up and down. 

Now its lazer tag time.  They both loved shooting Daddy. I think this was one of there favorite's at Boomers.
