(WTNH) -- Storytelling is a fun way to help encourage young children with developing their literacy skills and one way to pass along family stories is through family quilts.
Jan Doyle of Classroom Connections 365 says that quilts can be used as a fun and interactive way to promote literacy skills. Jan also reminds us that every quilt has a story.
Quilts can be used as storyboards by using the squares. To do so, each square on a quilt can work together to illustrate and tell a story.
Quilt-making is fun for kids, parents and even grandparents alike to pass along family history.
