## Reflection: Classroom Setup How Many Dots Does a Ladybug Have? - Section 1: Introduction

Parent volunteers are essential to my station rotation. I always include stations that students can independently complete, such as this ladybug activity. However, there is always a station or two that students may need extra guidance at. Having a parent volunteer at these stations helps make my room run more efficiently, and allows me to pull small guided groups without being disturbed.
