bobpursley,
a counter is a measuring strip, usually like a paper ruler, usually marked at one inch increments. 4 counters long=4inches.
If you child doesn't have one, make a strip of paper marked in inches.

Thank you thank you thank you... I asked my son what a counter was and he was not able to tell me, though he was able to tell that that I wasn't doing it right :)
