Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 3

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 3: Art Connection activity, children need to identify square, circle, and triangle by clicking the mouse on the correct shape. You may help the children to remember each of the shapes by asking them questions about them, such as:

  • What kinds of objects are circles? (wheels, pancakes, top of a bowl)
  • How many sides does a square have? (4)
  • Which shapes have corners? (triangle, square)
