Chatty Toolbox can help:
A study showed that Chatty Nouns software improved children’s vocabulary by as much as 40% after twice weekly intervention for 8 weeks.
With Chatty Toolbox, your staff won’t have to wait for external guidance or support to help children. Staff can quickly screen a child (less than ten minutes) to identify any vocabulary issues before using the software to take action and close the gaps.
Chatty Toolbox software packages run on tablets, laptops, desktops and smart boards. Any member of staff can use the software with any child. Parents can also log in so that they can support their child’s learning and boost impact. You can also enable your older pupils to be as “Chatty Buddies” to be part of the vocabulary team supporting weaker or younger pupils.
