Alongside our regular typing lessons and putting our new student–assigned Google accounts to good use this year, we will be having our first Spelling Bee. I told the kids to be saying their spelling words a little more, writing them a little more, practicing a little more and getting better grades on their spelling tests because we are going to have a Spelling Bee Contest in the Keyboarding Lab! There will be some awesome prizes awarded to the last kid standing in each class. A free-day ticket, a Mountain Dew and a bag of chips will also be awarded to each winner.
I will be using words from the list posted on the Department of Education website per grade level. I am going to start down the recommended list and line them up according to how they are seated when they come into the room. I have explained this to them so they know they may get an easier word or one of the tougher words and it may even be one that they have studied in their classrooms. I will be posting a list of each room’s winner after the spelling bee has been completed for all of the 3-5 Grades.
Don’t forget to practice!
It is time to start collecting for Operation Christmas Child again. Please collect all you can for these children. We collected 96 boxes last year and I would love to be able to pass that number this year. Ship dates for the boxes are November 13-17. I will be collecting and packing boxes and then will deliver all packed boxes to the drop off location. Send all items in to me, Mrs. Whitney Fleenor in room 201. It also costs $9 per box to ship these if you would like to donate any amount of money with your box. I look forward to seeing the success we have with this program this year. Thank you in advance. We will collect items beginning September 18, 2017- November 8th, 2017. Thank you so much for your help. Ms. Whitney Fleenor
