Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 6

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

The “Getting Fit” activity includes a chart that shows how much exercise two children got in one day. The exercises listed include sit-ups, jumping rope, running 50 yards, jumping jacks, and jogging. Ask the children to describe what each exercise entails. Go over any exercises that the children are not familiar with. Explain to the children that doing these exercises can help a person to keep his or her heart and lungs healthy.
