The Spelling Bee was held from 4th to 8th of April inserted in the special activities of the Easter Holiday.
In 5 days, 36 participants showed their skills in spelling words in Portuguese, playoffs after playoffs.
The difficulty was increased to the high end and the kids won with distinction … we can even say that the older kids led the jury to surrender, after running out of words, using a dictionary and decreasing the response time for the participants. The two finalists continued to spell correctly. So, both were taken as winners.
It was a mixture of nervousness, hesitation, confidence and smile … it was a very well spent week and above all showed that playing and learning can go together.
Below are some pictures of the participants during the competition.
