Count Me In! How to Reinforce Your Child's Counting Ability

By the beginning of their fourth year, nearly all children know some number words, and most can verbally count up to ten. Many children can also use one-to-one correspondence to count objects. This means that when your child is counting how many crackers he has, he knows to assign one and only one number to each cracker. He also knows that the last number he uses represents the total amount of objects that he's counted. Of course, this all seems obvious to us as adults, but these are actually major accomplishments in the foundations of early math!
