As we wrap up national Read Across America week, I am reminded of the quote by the author of Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne. “My spelling is Wobbly! It’s good spelling but it Wobbles and letters get in the wrong places.” His wobbly letters have been used to create words and books that have ignited the imagination of children since 1926.
This week our elementary Falcons celebrated reading by dressing up daily to represent various books. Our week of reading culminated with our annual FCS Elementary Spelling Bee. Our elementary students did not “Wobble” their letters as they took turns spelling various words. Each grade had its own set of words as they competed against the other grades. In the end, our 5th grade took 1st place, Kindergarten took 2nd place, and first grade took 3rd place.
Well Done to our Elementary class representatives for this year’s Spelling Bee.
