Babydoll has progressed! She can now rote count comfortably up to 39. At the same time, she can also count one to one correspondence without any aid.
So I took out my Duplo cards and have her count- this time without the counters. She is able to point and count in correspondence accurately. Whoohoo!
I also started her with Montessori counters. I learn that it is one thing to count 'how many' items are there but it is another thing to be able to allocate the correct amount of counters according to the numeral. Oh well, we will just have to practise, practise!
