spellScripp’s National Spelling Bee
Here at Somers Elementary all students in grades K-5 have the opportunity to participate in Classroom Spelling Bees. Lists will be passed out this week. This year’s contest will include Spelling and Vocabulary components – if the list has definitions with a word children should study how to spell the word AND what the word means.  Each class can send up to 4 students to the Grade Level Bees.  The winner of our 4/5th grade Spelling Bee will represent Somers at the KUSD District Spelling Bee at the end of January.

word

4th and 5th graders will ALL participate in this vocabulary building activity.  Three times during the year they are given a list of words to learn.  A month later they will take a written test that tests their knowledge of the meanings of these words.  We celebrate top scorers at each grade level and their scores are added to a NATIONAL website that lets us know top classroom and individual scorers.  Ask your 4th or 5th grader if they are studying a list right now … you can help them figure out what the words mean and if any of the words connect with other words (mean the same as, mean the opposite of, goes along with).
All students can compete in the Analogy of the Week.  The Analogy of the Week is posted on the bulletin board.  Any student can try to figure out the missing word – look up words and talk to friends and try to find the answer.  Then they write the answer on the entry form and turn it in by room 125 on Friday before 9:00.  Winners will be announced on TV each Friday and will be posted on the bulletin board.
A SPECIAL THANKS to the SSC for their continued support in paying our entry fees for the WordMasters’ Challenge. Encourage your children to participate in these activities.
