You don't know what you're saying, and some ignorant folks liked your post.

Kids in the US learn gradually, they're not given assignments meant for high school students in grade1. grin


madam what are you saying


how is this assignment meant for high school student, because of the use of the word 'exhibit' and the vocabularies

please go and search about reading and writing proficiency test in grade 2 and educate yourself. you people are attacking the poster who is right.

That assignment isn't meant for a primary one pupil in Nigeria. It's not even found anywhere in their curriculum.

Again, in the US, their first language is English language that's why a kid over there is more grounded in English than some of us, so quit the comparison.

A child in primary one is not meant to do his/her assignment alone, A parent is suppose to help and explain things better. They learn more and better this way


For those complaining that this is too much, you should help yourself by reading and looking up the USA curriculum for elementary(primary) school then you will know that this is nothing.

The curriculum says it all. It reflects the needs of the society and takes into cognizance the prevailing political, social an economic conditions of the society.

Its real. As an educationist, i know that some of our teachers are not trained.
Readiness theories of learning lean heavily on the concept of maturation in stages of biological and mental development. It is assumed that a child passes through all stages of development in reaching maturity. The teacher finds out what a child is ready for and then devises appropriate materials and methods.
some of our teachers aint qualified to be in the classroom. This is one of the reasons why teaching is still widely regarded as a semi-profession.
I have had similar experience. My little nephew in primary one came back from school with an assignment meant for someone in jss1 and I had to meet his teacher the next day.
I asked him to give one good reason why he assessed a seven year old learner with questions that are way beyond his IQ and all he cud say was that he wants him to step out of his comfort zone.
Private schools must be well regulated cos atimes they go against the ethics of education.
Government is really giving them a free hand.

I see your point. But then, write on exhibiting good character? For someone just learning to read?

you should all be ashamed of yourselves. if that teachers spends 3 minutes on google he/she will get the answers for themselves. why give it to a child to give to its parents who may be bloody illiterates like that fool who posted on Facebook?

if you want to know why this country is so backwards all you have to do is listen to Nigerians speak and behave... if you listen to an american primary 1 child speak you will see the difference between their educational system and ours, you will know why they are far ahead of us, you will know why Nigeria is a country heading backwards instead of forward. children are meant to learn good virtue and goal getting as young as possible, there are no two ways to that. when you pay thousands to go listen to a motivational speaker speaks what do you thing they speak about? its 'goal getting' you bloody morons. they twist and turn it and make it sound like they are speaking on inspirations from above but all they talk about is setting goals and achieving them and here you have a teacher teaching a primary 1 child goal getting and good virtue which will develop their brains fast and hasting their maturity you fcking illiterates are here criticising the teacher... this is just a Nigerian syndrome. we are very good are criticising people doing their job,people who have been trained to do their job we tell them how to do it when we have no idea the basics of it. we criticise the police,the military e even criticise foot ball managers and coaches wgen we never stepped a foot onto a football pitch...
i remember my days in the secondary school, my teacher gave us an assignment and i told my calssmate that i will tell my mom to help me with it and teach me. my classmate reported me to my class teacher and my class teacher rebuked him,telling him that it was a good thing for my parents to teach me the assignment and help me with it. why cant the stupid mother complaining on facebook teach the child GOOD VIRTUE AND GOAL GETTING? is it ever too early in life to learn these things? no. it develops a child faster in their daily lives and makes them better and more mature than their mates. lets not forget that a teacher can give yoyu an assignment he knows will be very difficult because they want you to make mistakes so they can correct them and make you learn.

And you morons here on Nairanland are quick to criticise the teacher.

I quite agree with you, most people here think the world is still the way it was when they were in primary school. I am an educator, where I teach, our pupils from primary one to five are given project topics, they make research, compile the results then defend it in school.You need to see this children talk while defending their projects, I cannot but envy them because the first time I stood to defend project was at the university, I was so jittery which wouldn't have happened if I had such opportunity as these children. Although groomed by their parents on given topics, the aim is to build their level of confidence, and whatever topics they are given to do research on will forever be part of them.

There is something really wrong with Nigerians, because a teacher used exhibit and virtue, the English is now considered too big for a primary 1 child, so your primary 1 child is not suppose to know the meaning of virtue of exhibit

The only problem I see here is the spelling error and not the assignment being too difficult because of the grammar used, those words are not even grammars sef
..........i hope u know the age bracket of primary one class?......5 to 6 years........at age 5 can a child read and understand those questions up there??.......moreover that teachers writing is not befitting of a primary school teacher .....i mean the child wount be able to see d letters properly........as for the american counterparts ......ill advice u forget them and focus on our own

That question is far beyond the comprehension of a child in primary 1,the teacher seems not to have the required skills/ training for the job,
A primary 1 pupil should be learning things like:
1,Simple Arithmetic)multiplication,minus ,division, multiplication tables
2'Basic English:words and spelling,words and opposite and simple sentence construction

The.school management needs serious.overhaul

I doubt they have their own curriculum but they usually go overboard virtually with everything. Everything in this country is upside-down. I know of some primary schools in PH that uses Cambridge standard to teach. So whatever Nigerian schools are doing is contrary to what they do, even their closing dates are different. Yet, these schools that uses Cambridge standard don't stress the child and teachers are scrutinised, I worked in one years back but was a non-academic staff. I know what I'm saying. Some private school teachers don't know what to teach these kids.

Let me explain this your English of a thing once more to you, and relate that to how kids are taught in America.

Our first language isn't English, but theirs is English. When you were born; your parents were communicating with you in your Native dialect. That's your first language. Could be Hausa, Yoruba or Igbo. Then in school, you'll be taught English so you could read and write while a child in America whose first language is English; that's, as they're born the first words their parents use in communicating with them is English Language, what they teach them later is how to spell these words they already know correctly. If you've read "Gifted Hands" by Ben Carson he did mention of some vocabulary classes where he spelt some words correctly as at when he could read, he spoke English fluently but he was an illiterate 'cause he couldn't spell what he was speaking. He explained that.

A kid in America would use words that even you as an adult in Nigeria doesn't know the meaning and the reason for that is because that's the child's language unlike you who's learning it. This explains why you were shocked at your little niece in US who spoke fluent English. grin

Lazy parents. The reason why I avoided teaching primary school pupils. They don't ever want to be a part of their children's education. If you feel the questions are too difficult, call to see the teacher and be nice. Stop looking down on teachers.
