    Lulu ... your daughter is a genius as she's still reciting because Pi is a prime infinite number.

    so this is either about actual 4 year olds or the OP considers other older people to be as dumb as 4 year olds, which is puzzling.

    so, there's two possibilities:

    1. if this is about 4 year olds, my posts stand and this 100 topics in 100 days is a load of wank. good luck OP. i would hate to be a kid "engaged" with such trivialities day after freaking day. there's no way you get past the 20th day without changing something up. you'll get a "but can we draw pictures of the thing last time that inspired us?" ..."NO WE HAVE TO KEEP ON SCHEDULE!"

    2. this is not about 4 year olds and more than 6 posts here, relating to kids and such have not only gone unanswered but the OP himself said, "wow, manners, hadnt thought of that!" and other brain-gems.

    so yes, i think i get it. and if i were him, i'd take my advice and reduce the amount of topics and get a bit---A TAD-- more in depth and get the kids engaged. FFS, thats still 20 freaking topics!! which is a ton! or even 30-40. doing 100 is laughable and if you think thats ok, then i don't think you really "get it"

    I read it as a 10 minute filler between everything else.



    What do you think they'll be doing for the other 23 hours 50 minutes? Locked up, blindfolded in a box?

    uh. that's a really weird reply.

    even for 10 minutes. my point STILL stands. with any 4 year old, or any kid, say, under 12.

    FFS apparently you don't know what this is about. he's going to do a shitload of work, researching and putting together things about a fucking myriad of topics...they will remember none of it and will be bored to tears at the Ted Talks lectures come day, 63.


    DAY 63!!!


    then


    DAY79!


    then


    DAY 92!!!



    but what do i know. i only do this shit for a living. move on, nothing to see here!

    Jeepers.

    Maybe I can get my kid how to teach you.

    .they will remember none of it
    If you've had a kid, did you let it sleep in a room with freshly painted walls when they were just born?


    You've been doing something wrong bud.

    "ok i know that you've been working really hard, 4 year olds, but let's disengage with what we've been doing and we're going to switch gears to a totally unrelated thing and im going to sit here and show you maps and factoids, which of course you're super keen on. ok and im going to do this one hundred times."

    LOOOOL

    little kids do best when engaged with themes. there's a reason for that, which of course, i eluded to about 5 times already.

    but i suspect he's been given this directive by a thai teacher whom he's helping in the classroom. just kindly instruct her that you would fare much better by using a weekly theme than changing the topic every single class. they'll learn more vocabulary (whether language learners or native L1 speakers) and they will not only like it more, but will get involved...oh FFS i give up...what's the difference....

    King Lear
    Goldie Hawn movies
    Golfing
    Go-Kart maintenance
    dominoes
    molecular biology
    microscopes- a new invention or was Galileo really that misinformed?


    they' be fucking spellbound!

    4 years old is all about lego,alphabet, numbers, general chit chat with the odd fact thrown in and Bob the builder.

    Or if you are from Singapore, revising and remembering for your Mensa IQ test whilst reciting your times tables in your sleep.

    Nope. Most of their day is doing that stuff.

    10 minutes of viking coloring pages won't kill them.


    Sorry that you don't actually understand the thread and went nuts.

    but i wouldn't dare brag about him. it would distract me from my chores like schlepping him to his trigonometry tutor and then off to latin class.

    oh look, piano lessons....gotta run!



    ---no im just kidding. latin is a dead language and he plays the harpsichord.




    ...when he's finished building his FUCKING GIGANTIC ROBOT!!!

    and really if you cant see the point in doing themes and extending a topic as to get them involved in more ways than one, then i suppose you missed the point. and thats a shame because frankly what ive been describing are fundamentals of early learning, or any kind of learning for that matter. im no expert, but its what i do for my work and im pretty good at it.

    ...as you keep replying.


    but im having fun though. passing the time here on holiday.


    im only rebutting your claims that 1. i dont know what this is about and 2. its a bad idea to extend a topic with young kids as to be a waste or whatever you think is ill conceived about it.

    and you dont have to agree. but your're negating what im saying and as such you appear to be quite a dullard. what im doing is offering advice thats pretty solid. maybe the guy will consider it and save himself 5++ months of lousy directionless pedagogy.


    if i were his supervisor, id have a sit down with him and ask whether or not he understands how kids learn. not a parchment scroll of topics, but how he's doing it. i'd suspect his answer would be as scattered as the topics provided here.
