in reply to When I count, I think of numbers as...

I chose "spoken words", since this is the closest answer, but normally I do count without thinking. If it comes to very large numbers, I have to think while counting, but even then I think rather of abstract numbers than of the spoken words.

My kids grabbed the idea of counting by using the words and counting random things, especially when playing board games.
For learning simple arithmetic I make them use their fingers.
