me:How many fingers do you have?J3:10, here's five (shows one hand) and here's five (shows the other hand)me:Let's count them?J3:1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10me:I'll try mine. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11J3: (laughs)That's silly. You skipped ... you don't have 11. Let me show you. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10me:Oh, thanks for helping! I have something else to show you. (I write down the numbers below).

I realized that I had drawn the 306 a bit larger than the 36. Maybe that was why she pointed to 306? I drew two more.

me:Hmm, what about these two numbers?J3:(points to the 2). That is a really big number (stretches her arms wide)

we then drew faces for each other.
