Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 4

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 textbooks.

In the Unit 4: Science Connection activity, children need to count the number of times each object appears on the calendar. Explain that the pictures show the number of times that an event happened during that month. You may suggest that children count the objects by moving their fingers across each row from left to right, top to bottom.

You may ask questions about the calendar to challenge children, such as:

  • On what day on the calendar did the trumpet first appear?
  • What is the last picture to appear on the calendar?
  • Which picture appears the most on the calendar?
