It's OK to Count on Your Fingers!
Zaslavsky, Claudia
Teacher, v96 n6 p54-56 Feb 1979
In presenting a rationale for allowing--even encouraging--children to count on their fingers, the author illustrates finger counting systems from African and American Indian tribes and the medieval European system cataloged by the Venerable Bede. She cites number words from many languages which derive from names for gestures. (SJL)
