Counting to 10

Learning how to count to 10 can be a challenge, yes?

You can count to 3.

Counting from 3 to 5 takes a bit of brain work, but 5 is practically right around the corner from 3.

Then it can get tricky.

Count 5 fingers: 1 2 3 4 5.

Move to your other hand to continue counting but then how so whaddayamean the next finger is number 6? No no no it’s got to be number 1, the same as the 1 on your other hand, right?

No?

Really, numbers 6, 7, 8, and 9 often fall into that elemeno pattern.

Just hold up a whole bunch of fingers and mumble quickly through the lot, because in a second or two you’re going to get to 10, which you should gleefully shout out at the top of your lungs.

You made it!

But then you have to figure out how to count backwards.

Oh boy.

[Lotsa good stuff!]
