What does a black and yellow striped, buzzing creature have to do with a spelling competition?! The phrase “spelling bee” is derived from a term in Middle English to describe a gathering of people to complete a common task. For 98th Percentile, our spelling bee is a festivity of spelling and literacy within our amazing community of young people across the country!
98th Percentile’s Kahoot Spelling Bee is a FREE event designed to engage students in friendly competition while demonstrating a skill vital to reading and writing. With the bee being held in a completely virtual setting (Kahoot.com), students will have the opportunity to connect with other children their age all around America, and form friendships in the name of teamwork and competition. The Kahoot spelling bee will encourage students to work together towards a positive common goal, foster confidence and perseverance, and provide a virtual platform to display their achievements.
