Today I had the National Spelling Bee qualifier for all of the 5th graders at my school. In order to qualify to go to the actual bee in Skopje the students must spell 10 words correctly on their first try. Every single student wanted to try out but unfortunately only one qualified.
It was a mad house in the classroom. All of the students wanted to try again and would get very upset when they spelled a word incorrectly. One of the students threw his piece of chalk because he was so upset. Two other students got in a physical fight over the correct spelling of a word. It was bazar haha they loved it!
So far I have 2 students qualified, one from the 5th grade and one from the 7th grade. Tomorrow will be the last qualifier for the 8th graders
Near the beginning of your first year, you heard someone joke that your college is 75% bi/lesbian and 25% first-years. Near the end of your first year, you realize that it may not have been a joke.
