Instant Feedback with Hot Dots
Nothing compares to instant feedback and positive reinforcement when teaching reading to kids, and ETA Cuisenaire’s Power Pen can tell them when they’re right or wrong. After reading a book, students answer questions on Charging Up cards by taping answers with the Hot Dot pen. Each card quizzes kids on the content of the reading passage and the pen records right and wrong answers, while letting the kids know how they did. There are Charging Up kits for third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms that cost $300 each. The sets include 24 books, three groups of 24 Study Strategy Cards and 8 Hot Dots Power Pens; additional pens cost $10 each.
