Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 7

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 of their student books.

The Unit 7: Art Connection activity presents the child with 4 images of cats, representing 4 different number sentences. Children need to identify the correct image for each number sentence.

You may help children to understand the images by discussing what is happening in each. You might ask questions such as:

  • What is going on in this picture?
  • What are these cats doing? Are they going away?
  • When the cats are going away, are we adding or subtracting (plus or minus)?
