Over the last couple months I have been teaching Peanut how to respond with the answer "four" when I ask him "How many fingers?" I am holding up. He has gotten very good at this and consistently will say "four" when asked. This morning I began to teach him to say "one" when one finger is held up. I had started with four because it was a number he loved to say anyways, the trick was to get him to say it when given the proper prompt. He already knows how to say "one" so hopefully it will not take him too long to associate the new sign and question to the word "one." I spend a little time with him several times through out the day showing him the difference between one finger and four, and what each is called. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to learn this next step in the trick.

It should not take TOO long, becuase there is a large difference between 1 finger and 4 fingers, in how it looks. If you had sarted with 4 then went to 3, I wonder if that would have taken more time.
