Counting - Level B

Hi,

I have a 6yr old who I am starting on RS. She spent Kinder at private school and through out PS we have focused on Math from the prospect of counting.

When learning to recognize 1-10 on the abacus, with the tallys or with her fingers she defaults to counting. She is new to the concept of recognizing values. Is it okay for her to count 6-9 (ie 5+1,2,3,4) or do I need to focus on her simply knowing that 5 and 1 is 6, 5 and 2 is seven,...?

Is it ever okay for her to count? It seems like at first it would be okay and then after enough repetition she would learn 5+2=6, etc.

I hate having to reprimand her for counting, but if this correction is important I can do it.

Blessings
