Scene 3 (16s)

O verview

Spelling Bee is an annual competition in the institution I work. Two students from each grade, from primary to junior high are chosen to represent their campus (7 campuses in total). Therefore: How to motivate students? How to keep students engaged? How to gamify spelling bee?

Scene 4 (32s)

Here’s how it works : All students must participate. A list of words will be assigned each week to study and practice. Study lists are cummulative until students have studied, learned, and practiced the 250-300 word list. Every day students are asked a random word from the list to spell and earn a point/stamp if they spell correctly At the last page of their notebooks students keep a record of their points/stamps earned (teacher write or stamps the point) All points/stamps earned are redeemed by the end of term to level up their grades. By the end of the week there is a dictation in which students earn extra points for their end of term grades.
