Zero (age 4)

Exercise 1 (age 4):  I put 2 peanuts in my hand.  I asked him how many peanuts there were.  Then I put 1 peanut in my hand and asked him how many.  Then I took and asked him how many.

Results: Great! He seemed a little confused at first.  I told him there were zero peanuts.  To reinforce the idea, I put 1 peanut in one hand and 0 in the other and told him "There is 1 peanut in this hand and 0 peanuts in this hand."  He seems to understand the concept of zero very well.
