Abuela’s Story Quilt
Rosita’s Abuela teaches Rosita how to create a quilt that tells the story of special shared family times and events.
Before reading the words on each screen, build early reading skills by inviting children to look at and describe the pictures. Read the story aloud, helping children connect it to their own lives by asking:
- How does our family like to share special stories or events? (storytelling, photo albums, scrapbooks, singing, and so on)
- What family events would you include in our family’s story quilt? (Together, design and draw your own family quilt with paper and crayons or markers.)
