Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 3

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides children with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

Have children read the article “Quilting Contests” on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity, if time allows. Check children's stories to be sure they use each of the words correctly. You may have children read their stories aloud if time allows.

The Data Hunt activity asks children to answer multiple choice questions about quilt patterns. You may have children work in pairs to answer questions.
