Literary event (Spelling bee) – Grade 3

Literary event (Spelling bee) – Grade 3

Behind every great student is a great teacher. These teachers make learning fun by thinking outside the box and creating classroom experiences that resonate with their students. While they serve many roles in their schools, as spelling coaches, “school bee” coordinators and judges, more often than not, they are also the motivators who encourage their students to be the best that they can be.
Dear parents,
The Spelling Bee competition will commence from Monday, 3rd April. This Literary event will develop the use of correct spellings among the learners thereby motivating them to learn and spell new words and write them correctly. The spelling list will be as per Grade 3 level.
We humbly request to parents to start preparing their children for the same.
P. S. We’ve already provided them with the words for the first round.
