Last Friday, May 11, we had the final of our spelling bee contest at our school.
These contests are extremely popular in the USA and children like taking part in them. One of our American language assistants won the spelling bee at his school when he was a bit younger and suggested it to the teachers at our Clara. We thought it would be a perfect excuse to get our students to revise vocabulary of the subjects they are studying in English and we agreed. We prepared a list of words (Spelling Bee final list) and asked our students to master the difficult spellings 😉
Out of 166 students, 18 students managed to win a seat in the final.
The competition was tough. There could be only ONE winner. Our winner was Antonio (1st-year E) and he got a book as a prize for his skills at spelling. He’s definitely the best spelling bee at our Clara this year. We also gave one special prize to the best spelling bee in each class. They got one homemade bookmark celebrating our first spelling bee contest (thanks to Michael).
