The Teacher is very very very wrong. The instruction is CAPITAL or SMALL letter, which means if the word is in capital, you fix there, also Small letter you fix there."

"You were correct. The instruction was for the child to identify which was written in capital letters or small letters and group them under accordingly."

Uche Rose said:

"Madam your child is expected to write on both space provided, the in capital letters while the second space in small letters."

Morenike reacted:

"You were correct the instruction was write each under capital or small letters not capital and small letters. So if the words is written in capital letters you write it under capital and if it’s small letter you write under small letter. Two examples was done to guide while didn’t the publisher write on both as examples."

Ogbonna Clever added:

"Those of you saying the teacher is correct, should calm down and read slowly with understanding and attach comprehensive attitude into the word “OR” , and you will see that both you and the teacher needs to go back to school."

The clip began with the mother asking her son, who was perched on a chair, how old he was. Her son, with innocence in his eyes, proudly declared he was five.

The mother then explained that her son is currently enrolled in nursery three, also known as the transitional class.

The mother's main grievance stemmed from the fact that the school had just concluded a two-day mid-term break, which she believed should have provided a well-deserved respite for her young son.
