Valerie, i had a similar experience this week with a little girl named Marlin. She waited forever for a CD Rom computer, so we started to play Monopoly. I wanted to see how well she could count, so I just watched her count the dice and count her moves. When it was my turn, I asked her to help me count my dice and my moves so she could learn to count. Though she was a bit rusty at counting the dice, she got really got happy happy when she counted the right number on the dice. I was really excited for her and after a while she started counting the dice when the other girl who was playing with us rolled. I thought it was a good learning experience for her to count everybody's move on her own.
