## Reflection: Lesson Planning Chopstick Counting - Section 2: Chopstick Counting

This station might seem like just a fun game. However, my students are engaged in counting and working on their fine motor skills during this game. Children should have strength in their hands and fingers to properly manipulate a pencil on paper. I knew with Christmas around the corner, my stations would need to really hold student attention.
