Uses for the TOOBALOO are endless:
- Whole classes can practice reading aloud to themselves without bothering other students.
- This gives students oral reading time, and at the same time, allows the teacher to move around the classroom and listen to individuals read.
- Small groups can use TOOBALOOS at a center to practice rereading.
- Students can use TOOBALOOS during or after a guided reading group, can individually practice reading and rereading the stories they are working on, or can check out a TOOBALOO to take home and practice with.
