Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Lesson 7.7

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides children with additional practice with the skills taught in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

Before having children do the “All Colors, Shapes and Sizes” activity, you may want to review the meanings of the words size, shape, and color. Ask questions such as “What are 2 things in the room that are the same color?” or “Are a baseball and a basketball the same shape?”

The activity presents pictures of three lollipops. For each, talk about the color, size, and shape of that lollipop. Children are asked to choose whether the three lollipops are the same size, shape or color.
