There is something wrong with this question that I placed in bold. The average IQ for everyone is 100.

The question in the OP is not an IQ test. It is an assignment for heaven's sake.
IQ is intelligence quotient, and kids also have either high or low intelligence quotient. At times, from their IQ doctors would know whether they have intellectual disability just like Autistic kids and they're monitored. I asked that question 'cause from the child's IQ you're likely to know what he/she is capable of handling intellectually.

Lol, even the 9 years old in my compound in primary 4 can't answer the question. He kept screaming I'm ignorant but no one wins such argument.

Cc: collinsebuka, is it the illiteracy rate in Nigeria that's 65-75 million as at this year that is your yardstick for saying your parents thought you English from birth. Who compares a fraction of the English speaking elite to the majority of illiterates?. It's only you!.
I wonder oooooo I wonder my parents way Don spoil me with Yoruba and Hausa tire na English I come go know from a young age.

Let's face it, the bar has been pushed a bit higher than it used to be. I agree with the general opinion that the assignment is beyond the scope of a primary 1 kiddo but then, these children are way too smart now.
I know of a lil girl, under 3 years that uses very big words. Many young parents can also attest to the fact that their kids are just too smart. A 2 yr old girl knowing how to operate phones, select games, dial her mum, change TV to the station she wants to watch...etc
Assignment I want to believe is based on what they have been taught in school. If there is a remarkable difference then the parents should protest otherwise let them hold their peace now and forever.

No wonder examination malpractice is rampant. They expect someone to help them do the assignment.
The teacher is even not competent. He is obviously shielding his incompetence by giving out difficult assignments. From spelling errors ' goal cetting' to writing date as position, it should have been written as 23rd. You better get your kid a better school.
You are not better than the teacher for exhibiting your blindness to facts! If he had written '23rd' as you said, will that not be today, Saturday? Do children attend school on Saturdays? What's there is probably 25th or 28th. Look again.

Its real. As an educationist, i know that some of our teachers are not trained.
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.
Or is it that private schools have their own curriculum?
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.


When a person who is trained to educate talks, it shows.
You have spoken well.
There's nothing wrong with teaching a child in primary one about goals. The problem lies with the way you prepare the course content and your style of evaluation.
For this level, the teacher is wrong.
It looks fancy.... Yes. But there's a time for everything and a method for every endeavor.

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.

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 or 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 agree. There is even no spelling error. It is the way the teacher wrote the "s". If you check the "sept" there too, the "s" almost looks like a "c".

I don't see this as being difficult for a primary 1 child. We underestimate this children. What are they meant to be learning now? "A for Apple?"

That's why when we see intelligent kids expressing themselves, we open our mouths and stare.

if it was so easy, the teacher should have taught it in class. This trend of giving impossibly long and difficult assignments to children is just ludicrous. If parents had the time and energy to do every assignment for their wards, won't they home school their kids instead of paying a substantial amount of their income as school fees?

kidman96:


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.


Dude in support of what you have said, I will like to agree that it's never too early to start molding a child's life though one might argue that primary 1 is too early cos the child's cognitive abilities are barely developed...my former neighbor's toddler son comes to mind here,i mean,kid is so playful and always makes it difficult to get him to do anything...now imagine giving that kid this assignment.

Frankly speaking,i can still remember the first day I stepped into primary 1,a few of the things my dad discussed with my teacher and I was 4 at that time...my point is, teaching a kid theories at that time might be impractical ,but along with some pictures,video clips, physical acts and some other form of visual aids, the child will definitely pick up some important lessons / behavioral patterns as his/her mind develops...

So,probably the Facebook poster had some good reasons to speak out and shouldn't be condemned thusly.

Looking at the picture, the title is Project and not Assignment. Project is given to know something you don't know (new) and even with help from others.
BTW, the Teacher wanted the use visual aid which is necessary for a pupil of that level.

For the spelling error, I guess that's a bad writing and not really an error. I stand to be corrected though.

Well, of course they expect people to teach them.. but if this is true then it's too much...Haba. When I was in primary one, it was just about 2-3letter words and learning simple maths
that is why the education system in Nigeria is effed up.

A very pathetic mentality
Those stuff you get on the internet, people like you put them there.
Instead of raising a child to contribute knowledge, you are making him/her dependent on the opinions of others.
Before you attack me, personally I have contributed my quota both in academic and technology, thousands search for my content on the internet
You are the one with little knowledge. The one that doesnt know about topics in pry one social studies curriculum but a noisemaker on internet.
I advised someone to use internet to study, it gave you headache. Then hug a bear.
