Launch Abuela’s Story Quilt
Encourage reading time with the parents and grandparents in your program! Adults and kids can find a cozy spot to read together. Before reading the words, build early literacy skills by inviting children to look at and describe the pictures. Then read the story together. Help children connect the story to their own lives by asking:
- How does our family like to share special stories or events? (storytelling, photo albums, scrapbooks, singing, etc.)
- What family events would you put on our family’s story quilt?
Invite children to design their own family quilt with paper and crayons or markers.
