Somewhere in Bulacan, me and Edge saw this: A counting poster, adamantly plastic, sold for PhP 20. Notice the Two (2) cellular phones. Lovely!
So this is how we're teaching kids to count these days. Before it would have been 2 giraffes or 2 pandas. Now it's gadgets.
Anyway, the animals are lumped together under number 11, just like the fruits and vegetables. So you can teach kids how to count, what each thing is called, and what their general category is.
Actually, this one is already a better deal than that other counting poster we saw, also just this month. It's a Frozen-themed poster which uses the Frozen characters as discrete countable objects. Instead of eight reindeer for example, the poster says eight Svens.
There were also nine palaces. Or was it six? Who makes up these things?
Count von Count of Sesame Street, was a great deal funnier. Like those silly posters, his penchant is counting weird, random things too like sheep flying in the air or telephone rings, but we love him.
