Paula Blair designed these boards to encourage imaginative play in an area of her classroom she calls the Prop Boxes. Pictured here is how she stores play props in plastic milk crates and/or soft sided cube baskets from Target on a shelf. Children can choose a prop box at Work Time and explore the items inside. Adults facilitate language by modeling the use of the messages on the play boards.
