Entz Spelling Bee Winner

McKenna represented her sixth grade classroom again in the school spelling Bee for 4th-6th graders. There were 18 children in the Bee.

Her words for each round:

  1. Dollar
  2. Simile
  3. Strict
  4. Zero
  5. Menu
  6. Easel
  7. Bundle
  8. Dune
  9. Keen
  10. Daily
  11. Tamale
  12. Toucan (4 kids left)
  13. Polygon (McKenna and Dean left)
  14. Panic
  15. Idiom
  16. Balcony, at this one McKenna looks at me and smiles broadly because she missed it last year so we had practiced it a bunch. The pronunciation last year kind of tripper her up, it sounded like "bellcony" so this year she was right on that.
  17. Ravioli, Dean misses Macaroni on this round and McKenna has to get the next two correct to win
  18. Bandit
  19. Burrito
She didn't miss a single word and won Dean by correctly spelling the last two words. She goes to District sometime in the next little bit.
