Move over Akeelah! The Lightning Bolts just had their first spelling bee, and it sounds like it was a hit!
Group Leader Lucria Ortiz was ecstatic about the results. Here's what she had to say:
Just wanted to report that the Spelling Bee was great! We had 6 rounds where each player accumulated points for correct words, instead of an elimination bee. The boys selected words for each other, and they were not easy. Jaden and Malcolm tied to win the bee. Some of the words spelled by our boys were "automobile," "material," "replacement," "reunion" and "adventures."
The parents enjoyed this just as much as the boys, and I've decided to add a word of the day to the start of each of our meetings.
For me it's just so exciting to see all the Cool Boys actively and enthusiastically participating in activities that will help them retain or enhance their academic abilities.
School may be out, but learning is always in . . . especially when you make it fun. That's what Cool Boys Read(TM) is all about!
