    Often. Though I do use tone of voice, facial expression, hand movements, body movements etc which could be regarded as props.

    Dollink, I'm not a robot either!
    I'm not very good with story props. I drop them or get them muddled up.

    I like to tell the children made up stories with the children in them eg when we had visited a castle I told them a spooky one where groups of children had wandered off and got lost...
  5. all the time!!! i use props sometimes , particularly to engage certain children however as above tone of voice and children themselves are fab props.. my ch are yr 1 and have loved this style of teaching and learning. If i only have 1 direct prop i give it to achild to engage them in session, or if props usedtry and use multi sensory ones
