Countdown – Small Steps Amazing Achievements

As Ethan is showing an interest in letters I thought that we should see if he likes watching countdown. You never know we might have a little genius on our hands!

So for the past few weeks we have been watching the show. The countdown clock was an instant hit. Ethan loves the music and the noise it makes. It makes him jump all round the room and sometimes he even spins on the spot!

Ethan likes watching the letters and numbers being selected. For about ten minutes of the programme I have been able to ask Ethan where certain letters are in the selection and he sounds them out for me. I had been sticking to the letters I know he knows, but the other day I asked him about the ‘W’ and he said ‘W’ very clearly.

I know it’s not a massive achievement but its a nice way to keep Ethan interested in letters and a nice little bonding activity for us.
