Alex Practicing For The County Spelling Bee



Song:  Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Rendition:  Calikokat


Last month...
Alex won his school's 7th grade Spelling Bee.

He will be advancing to the County Spelling Bee next month
(he will also be competing in a math competition next month).



In preparation for the Spelling Bee...
Alex practices using Merriam Webster's Spell-Jam computer program.





On this particular session...
the x marks his mistakes.

He then learned the ones he had missed...
and continued with the program.



Alex has fun with his preparations for contests.

With proper preparation...
a child does well.

When he does well...
he looks forward to the next test...
and he enjoys the process also...
which leads him to study more...
and so...to continually do well.

  1. Congrats to Alex! He seems to really enjoy competitions, not just participating in them, but in the preparation as well. I'm sure he is rising the challenge once again. (Spell Jam looks like a fun program).
