Spelling Bee–Salem

Today was the English spelling bee for grades Kinder-7th. Kinder went first right at 8 and Prepa went at 8:45. The spelling bee was held in the pre-primary building, so we all had to be very quiet during the Kinder spelling bee. To prepare I had to do a mini spelling bee in my classroom. The top 3 students from each prepa class got to participate in the spelling bee in front of parents and teachers. Parents were invited to come and all of their classmates watched. I pulled words out of a bag and read the word and the student spelled it. I had 40 words to start with that the students studied, and I had 50 extra words in case we finished the regular ones. The top 2 spellers finished the regular words and went through about 10 of the extra ones. I was very proud of my kids and they all did very well! After the spelling bee we went outside for recess and next we went to the cafeteria to practice for the independence day celebration on Friday. We couldn’t go to our classes because of the spelling bee. So we basically did nothing all day. tomorrow is the Spanish spelling bee and it will be the same as today with nothing to do. Then Friday is the independence day celebration all day and next week we have no school. Basically I’m done teaching for 2 weeks. Wow!
