Now for my next giveaway...
Have you ever heard of Hot Dots? I remember playing with Hot Dots as a child and completely forgot about them until a teacher friend showed me hers a few years ago! Kids today still LOVE Hot Dots. There are all sorts of Hot Dot pre-made activities you can buy, but did you know you can make your own? I have turned all of my task cards (aside from those awesome QR task cards) into Hot Dot task cards. My kids usually pick a set during Daily 5 or for Math May Dos to work on at their own leisure. I like how the pen can be silent or can make fun sounds. They also light up: green means correct and red means try again. To make your own, all you need to do is order the Hot and Cold stickers. Click on the image below to take you to Amazon that has them for sale:
Last year I purchased a Reading for Main Ideas Hot Dot set. The cards are leveled by grades 2-6. My kids only used them a few times. Therefore, since I am leaving the classroom, I would like to give them to one of YOU. Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway and a winner will be chosen on Monday.

  1. I've never used hot dots but they seem like a wonderful product.

  2. I do not use hot dots, but I always eye them when I see them in catalogs, etc. because I love that they are self-checking. However, the price of the pens always keeps me from making the purchase! Thanks for giving yours away :)
