Dear students & parents,
I strongly encourage you to use this great teaching resource to study & prepare for the Scripps National Spelling Bee competition we're hosting in our classroom. We will hold practice Spelling Bees each week in January to familiarize students not only with the words, but the format of the Bee, as well. Our 5th grade classroom Spelling Bee is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 23rd, & all students are to participate in this Spelling Bee. From there, the (3) winners of the classroom bee will advance to the Intermediate Spelling Bee on Thursday, Jan. 29th., & finalists from the Intermediate Bee will compete in the school-wide Spelling Bee on Thursday, Feb. 5th. Use these (2) lists to review the 100 words on the 5th grade Spelling Bee study words list. Should you want to better prepare for the Bees, we encourage you to download & study the 6th, 7th, & 8th grade study words lists, as well, off the link on St. Monica's SchoolSpeak webpage.
Best of luck,
