WHAKAMĀRAMA

I tēnei momo tatau, kāore e honoa ia tau ki tētahi mea kotahi o roto i te huinga e tatauria ana. Ko te whakahua noa iho i ngā kupu tau, engari kāore anō kia mau te tikanga o te tatau pānga tahi.

In this type of counting, each number is not connected to an object in the set that is being counted. The child knows the number names but cannot count one number for one object.
