One of the products that we have been having fun with lately is called, "Hot Dots Jr." We have had the chance to try out both the math and the reading sets, which has been really great!
These sets come in a box with two books in each. Each also comes with one "Ace" - the talking, teaching do. A wonderful aspect of this is that Ace from one set will work with the books from another set. This came in handy when my daughter misplaced one of them!

The Reading Set covers concepts all the way from beginning alphabet to consonants, vowels to sight words. At the end of the second book is a "Challenge" that is preparation for 1st grade level work. I love that this set offers that transition, making this a great set for use throughout the school year, or as a summer refresher activity for getting ready for the next grade level.
The Math Set is my favorite of the two! Our focus this year with Shari has been mostly on reading, so I felt like we had been slacking a bit in the math department. This Hot Dot's Jr. set has helped us to get where we need to be, going over number words, counting, paterns, shapes, addition, subtraction and even some very basic statistics! That was just book one! Book two goes more in depth with many of the basic skills and even introduces fractions. There is the "Challenge" at the end of this set as well, which is so great!
One lucky reader is going to win a set of their own! The winner will be able to choose either a Reading or Math set for their child from Pre-K all the way up to Grade 3. All residents of the U.S. 18+ are eligible to enter. One entrant per household, please!
