Subject: This worked for me at the age of four

Using pennies: My Father stacked up a pile of five, counting them out from one to five. Then he had me make four more equal piles. Then stated five, five is twenty-five. I figured out on my own how to get twenty-five, twenty-five. I must admit that my family was bothered by this lesson later, as I kept wanting to know what the name was for different piles of pennies.
