Using her number tiles, she can arrange numbers from 1-50 pretty well. The exercise also holds her attention. She is beginning to recognize counting by 1's and 10's. Counting by 2's and 5's is easier. We touch the tiles together and she can say the numbers alone; however, when she writes numbers she still writes some of the backwards. The backwards numbers are not consistent. I think she still does not have the shapes firmly in her head.
We are still working on easy addition with an abacus. She is getting better about remembering the procedure although I don't think she really understands what she is doing.
She can recognize all of our coins by name and she generally knows how much they are worth. We are working on counting money but we are far from understanding.
Julia is using numbers much more. I heard her say to someone that there were "a thousand" stars in the sky.
