(Goblin is 43 months)
Goblin can count but he doesn't know his number symbols. He is also not particularly interesting in learning them. I know a lot of children do know them by now but I don't think he will be damaged by getting there later than some. But I am trying to ensure that he is exposed to them regularly through play.
He did a great job with the low numbers, but by the time he reached the bigger ones he realised he could just leave a pile of marbles and get the little people to take as many as they needed. I tried insisting that the delivery driver needed to take back the extra ones, but he wasn't falling for it. Bt it wasn't a total bust because we still got to talk about the numbers.
