Spelling Games

Barbara J. Feldman

It must be spelling bee season, because I see bees buzzing everywhere. The 79th annual National Spelling Bee finals will be in Washington D.C. May 31- June 1. The movie “Akeelah and the Bee” is now in movie theaters. “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is playing on Broadway. And a new book outlining the history of the National Bee (“American Bee'” by James Maguire) just arrived in bookstores. These online spelling bee games are my contribution to the current spelling bee Zeitgeist.
