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 Unit 6: Science Connection activity presents children with three pictures of cats. Children need to identify which cat is the tallest and which is the shortest.

Children need to understand the meanings of the words tallest and shortest. Ask them to explain the meaning of the word tall. Then have them describe what it means to be the tallest. Do the same for the words short and shortest.
