Mini whiteboards and marker pens
At the ready for the words
Starting easy getting hard
From ‘necessary’ to ‘consciousness’
The teams will whisper in their ears
Arguing, is it an ‘i’ or is it an ‘e’
Choose wrong and you’ll go crashing out.
I’m organising a spelling bee for the kids at school next week, and I’m a little bit nervous that hardly anyone will turn up. What if we are done in ten minutes and I look like an absolute idiot?
I want to offer the kids something different because it’s always the sporty ones that get to win trophies and certificates, so I want the nerdy kids to have a chance to shine. I just hope I don’t screw this up!
