Our 1st Spelling Bee

So much fun!!!

Pre-K did very well even with the fact that he was using the 1st grade list. He was the littlest guy up there, but did well. He came in 4th.

2nd grade had a hard time with his very first word and had trouble knowing what to do, but he sure looked handsome during his brief time on stage. He received a ribbon for participation.

6th grade did very well, she was in the end matched up with a friend and they both showed such great sportsmanship. She took 2nd place with her friend winning 1st place. BTW, this lovely won last year as well and her mother won national spelling bees back in the day. LOL! They are serious!

Overall, it was a neat experience and all say that they want to do it again. I may try to find some local ones in the meantime.

What a great experience for your children!! I have a couple great spellers that I think would enjoy it too. Where ever did you find your spelling bee?? Was it through a co-op? Hmmmm. I'll have to do some investigating.
