Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 1

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.

In the Unit 1: Science Connection activity, children need to choose the correct group for each of the 6 animals by clicking the mouse over the correct group. You may help the children to categorize by asking them questions about the animals in the 2 groups, such as:

  • What kind of animals are in this group?
  • Do the animals in this group have wings?
  • Do the animals in this group have fur?
  • Do the animals in this group have tails?
