# Rote Counting

Trixie was 2 years
and 9 months at the time that this video was made.

**What To Look For In This Video**

- Trixie has seen others counting on their fingers and she seems to be imitating what she has seen. But she is clearly not counting her fingers. She is counting by rote.
- She stops at 28 - I don't know why. Most children have difficulty going from 19 to 20 and from 29 to 30 and from 39 to 40, etc. Perhaps she realized that she was getting close to a point where she would have trouble.
