## Reflection: Lesson Planning Pumpkin Color by Number - Section 1: Introduction

When I plan stations for the week, I am looking for material that reviews a skill we have been working on in the classroom. I want children to feel successful and have fun, while engaged in learning during station time. Most stations are completed independently. I do have a station or two each week, where it is necessary for a parent volunteer to sit at. These stations might need more explicit directions.
