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 case has many good features - Expandable side pocket, fairly solid construction. But since the telescoping handle is inside the case it takes up some of the room. One thing I don't like is inside the brief, the expandable file folder setup is held by two velcro straps that take up space and catch on the books or folders you try to slide in. Also, the telescoping handle is a bit wobbly. Gives you the feeling that they will snap off... they won't of course but feels that way. Also, the smokey metal hinges show scratches easily. The two end pockets are handy and roomy and the overall case is sturdy. Actually, the whole bag is pretty roomy. One little thing as far as the top flaps/handle. The overlapping flap does not come over the handle. It is cut out around the handle. So, to pick up the case you must clip at least one of the locks. I give it a 3.5 Stars overall. Overstocks shipping and service were very good.
I recently received these Hot Dots Sequencing cards in exchange for an honest review. I've been using them for several weeks in my job as an SLP and my preschool clients love them! There is a range of skill level, from basic ABABAB patterns up to AABAAB and ABCABC patterns, and also basic sequencing groups, in terms of what comes first, what comes next, etc. within groups of three story pictures. I also use the pictures to work on vocabulary, categorizing and basic narratives. My clients find the pictures engaging, and we use the cards both with and without the pen. With the pen, these cards would be a great activity for traveling in a car or airplane too. They have a carrying case with a nice closure too so the cards don't spill out.
I purchased this case for my son so he could carry everything he needs while attending the police academy. This case is strong, sturdy and a great size for him to carry everything he needs. His friends are jealous and wanted to know where he got it. Very good case!
