Unschooling and Reverse Counting

Schools might have reverse counting as one of the lessons in KG and 1st grade.
But, how do children who don't go to school learn reverse counting?
5yo: do you know how numbers are counted during rocket launch or the recent video where an astronaut jumped off free fall?
Me: you say
5yo: in a reverse manner. 5 4 3 2 1 and he jumped down
She then takes up the challenge to reverse count numbers starting from 10, 20, 30.
And, we could play more with numbers!!!
Nothing fascinates children more than their own motivation to learn.

This was the scene in our home some days back(keeps happening too). 10 mins after both kids woke up, they had an argument and me...
