I had the district spelling bee on Thursday and won! I'm very excited, and my friends did well too. I'll be participating in the Regional Bee again this year on March 13th. Thanks to Lockridge Grindal Nauen for sponsoring the bee again!
I've been studying a lot. I'm going back through the CWL and studying word roots and Spell-It, as well as a few other lists.
Bee season has started or will start very soon for most spellers. Good luck!
