dren present and absent, the number of boys and girls, the number of days in
the week, the number of places at a table, the number of children in line, the
number of blocks in a tower, the number of marks in a painting, the number of
buttons on a jacket, the number of steps up the slide, the number of birds at
the bird feeder, etc.
