I read somewhere a while ago that children couldn't understand the concept of amounts and the value of numbers until 5 or 6. Do you guys think that is true??[/b]
No, I don't think this is exactly true. I don't think very young children could learn to understand the value of numbers as an abstract, but when they are hands-on counting... yes, I think they get it even before 5 or 6. If I were to ask Thomas to hand me two or three of something, I am certain he could do it. He also knows how many spoons or forks to get out of the drawer. He's 3.
