We recently had our school annual Spelling Bee.
We did it by grade level, starting with Kindergarten! Some of them were so nervous!
We got all settled, each student sat in a chair with a white board and dry erase marker. The "Judge" (a parent volunteer) read one of the words and each student would write it on their board! When they were done, the would raise their hand and one of us would check it.
If it was right, they'd erase it and wait for the next word. It if was incorrect, they'd erase it and then grab a treat and wait for everyone else.
They all did SO good!! I was so proud of them. Kindergarten had a list of 20 words that got harder as the list went on. By the end of the 20 words we still had 3 of my kindergarteners going strong!!
They got to take a little break while the rest of us went back to class and then they continued on with the first graders! I'm not sure exactly how many of the first grade words they got correct, but they told me that they ALL got out on the word "boxes"
two of them wrote: boxs
The other one wrote: boxis
The whole school went back after everyone had their turns to find out who each class winner was!
Kindergarten had a 3-way tie, so they all got a prize!!
So proud of these cuties!!
Does your school do a spelling bee? If so, how do you do it?
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend!
