Commonly a 3-year old can count up to 12 and a 4-year old can count up to 40 There are at least three counting principles in teaching children how to count . The first one is One-to-one correspondence , where in teaching to count , an object should be labeled with a unique number , example if counting two cars , a red car is labeled 1 ‘ and the green car is labeled 2 .
