Gather several props, such as cars, animals, dolls, and toy furniture, that are central to the plot of a story. Read the story to a small group and use the props at the appropriate times to help tell the story. Put the storybook and the props in a box and leave them in the story corner so that children can use the props and retell the story on their own.
