Three kinds of prompts to inspire children to play
"Tracy Sims shared a very useful summary of three kinds of “prompts” she uses to inspire children to learn through play:
Direct prompts: Adult-led activities that guide or invite children to learn in specific ways.
Implied prompts: Adult sets up materials with a specific activity idea in mind, but children choose whether to do the intended activity or to use the materials in their own way.
Open exploration: Play materials are accessible to kids (on a shelf or table, or in a basket) but there is no direct or implied prompt of any kind."
