Digit Dots are similar to touch points - but better! This is a poster pack showing the Digit Dots on each digit from 1 to 9. There are two different versions. One has red dots on the digits and another has white dots with black outlines. A desk reference of the digit dots is also included.
HOW DO DIGIT DOTS WORK?
Students learn the position of dots and lines (forming an \'X\') on each digit. The number of marks on each digit corresponds to the value of the digit. To add two digits together, students just count the marks on each digit to find the sum.
HOW DOES DIGIT DOTS COMPARE TO TOUCHMATH / TOUCHPOINTS?
Digit Dots has improvements over TouchMath / Touch Points. One improvement is the use of an \'X\' to indicate a spot to count twice instead of a circle with a line around it. The \'X\' is much easier for young students to write, especially students with low fine-motor skills. Another improvement is the position of the dots on the digit 'four'. Compared to the other system, the position of the Digit Dots on a 'four' make it easier for students to place on different types of 'fours'.
