Spell Bee and Pronunciation
"Spelling is important because it aids in reading. It helps cement the connection that is shared between sounds and letters."
An Online Spell Bee and Pronunciation Competition was organised from 22 -02-21 to 01-03-21 for the students of Grade VI - VIII.This competition was one of the numerous enjoyable competitions that give students a platform to learn spellings in different ways. This competition helps students improve their spellings, increase their vocabulary, learn concepts and develop the use of correct English.
The competition had two rounds. The first round was 'Spell the Word' followed by the second round which was 'Pronunciation'.
The students were awarded grades as per their scores. Their efforts and initiative was appreciated by the judges. Mr Ajay Jha, one of the jury members gave his valuable suggestions. He insisted that students should read more to improve their spellings. Unconscious learning should happen as they read books and novels like Harry Potter, Enid Blyton, etc. 'Rome was not built in a day', hence students should work hard to improve their pronunciation. They must watch Hollywood movies, serials, award shows and listen to celebrities speaking in English like Amitabh Bachhan and Shah Rukh Khan. They should also take help of resources like YouTube, Google and even the dictionary for pronunciation.
