When a child utilizes the Toobaloo®, they experience a valuable form of auditory feedback by hearing themselves. This process empowers them to make essential adjustments to their fluency, pronunciation, and comprehension. The Toobaloo® proves particularly beneficial for children with special needs, offering remarkable advantages through the auditory feedback process of listening to their own reading aloud. As a versatile tool, the Toobaloo® plays a pivotal role in fostering literacy skills and supporting diverse learning needs. The Auditory Feedback Loop, fundamental in saying what you hear and hearing what you say, holds a crucial place in learning. Compromises in this loop can lead to issues in concentration, reading, and speech development, impacting a child's self-esteem and confidence and contributing to heightened anxiety. The Toobaloo® is meticulously designed to deliver clear Auditory Feedback, serving as a supportive aid to enhance the Auditory Feedback Loop. Even children without breakdowns in their system can benefit from the improved Auditory Feedback provided by the Toobaloo®. It facilitates the adjustment and correction of pronunciation, pace, and fluctuation in speech and reading. By reinforcing the Auditory Feedback Loop, the Toobaloo® significantly contributes to increased fluency, comprehension, and pronunciation in reading and speech.

Whether during or after a guided reading group, students can use Toobaloos®  to individually practice reading and rereading the stories they are working on. Additionally, students may check out a Toobaloo®  to take home and continue their practice. The versatility of Toobaloos®  makes them a valuable tool for enhancing reading skills in various educational settings.

Cleaning the Toobaloo® is a simple process. You can use liquid dishwashing soap, alcohol wipes, or even place it on the top rack of the dishwasher for easy cleaning and maintenance. This ensures that the Toobaloo®  remains hygienic and ready for use.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are learning styles and why do they matter?

Learning styles refer to the different ways in which individuals naturally approach and process information, influencing how people learn, understand, and remember new material. Learning styles matter because they impact how effectively individuals can absorb and retain information. Understanding and accommodating these natural strengths can enhance the learning experience in a multitude of ways.

What is right-brained learning?

Right-brain learners possess distinct characteristics that distinguish them from their left-brain counterparts. These characteristics pertain to their information intake, processing methods, and preferred memory strategies. When we discuss right-brain learning, we are essentially describing the way they naturally absorb, process, and retain information. 

Right-brain dominant learning, often associated with the right hemisphere of the brain, refers to a learning style that emphasizes creative and holistic approaches to understanding and retaining information. Strategies that are highly effective include multisensory materials, visuals, stories, movement, and hands-on activities.

How do I know if my child is a right-brain dominant learner?

Children who lean towards right-brained thinking exhibit a unique aptitude for envisioning fresh solutions, devising innovative designs, and grasping the broader perspective. These creative and imaginative learners often excel in artistic pursuits, music, or sports. They possess the remarkable ability to swiftly absorb and remember information when presented visually, using tools such as images, graphs, maps, and information organizers. This visual learning approach proves to be considerably more efficient and effective compared to traditional methods like repetition, memorization, or drilling. By connecting new content with visual aids, we help right-brained learners strengthen their less dominant hemisphere, fostering a well-rounded learning experience.

As you peruse this list, consider whether you find your child's characteristics reflected in it.

What grade levels/ages are your resources for?

We intentionally avoid labeling our resources with specific grade levels or ages to place the emphasis on each child's unique abilities. While the skills covered typically span from kindergarten to third grade, individuals of various ages have found success with our materials.

I’ve tried other materials, and they didn’t work. How do I know your resources will work?

Having tried other materials that didn't meet your expectations, you might understandably have reservations. Remember that the effectiveness of any educational resource can vary from one child to another. It's essential to stay flexible and patient while exploring different materials, as what works best for your child might require some experimentation and adaptation.

We've received feedback from numerous individuals who have achieved success with our resources, even in situations where they previously faced challenges or difficulties. This positive feedback is a testament to the effectiveness of our materials in accommodating diverse learning needs and helping learners make significant progress. We're committed to providing resources that empower individuals to reach their full potential, and we're delighted to hear about the positive experiences shared by those who've benefited from our offerings.

Do Child1st resources work for children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Auditory Processing challenges, Down Syndrome, and Dyscalculia?

Multisensory resources, in general, are tailored to diverse learning styles and prove exceptionally effective for children with varying learning needs. They foster a more inclusive and flexible learning environment, empowering these children to grasp concepts more readily and with heightened engagement. Our multisensory materials are specifically designed to address the unique needs of children with learning differences, ensuring their success.
