Revival of Spelling Bees Urged
That the old fashioned spelling bee may come into its own in West Virginia
is evidenced by a desire of the department of FIFA Coins schools to encourage this
old time education and social affair for FIFA 15 Coins winter evenings, says the Charleston
Gazette. State Supervisor of Rural Schools L.J. Hanifan has issued
a bulletin on community social gatherings in which he urges that at least
20 such gatherings be held annually. In this connection he suggests
that at least four or five of the twenty should be the old fashioned spelling
bees. In his bulletin he says:
"There is a general criticism of FUT 15 Coins our present methods of teaching spelling
and at the same time there is a general demand for the old fashioned spelling
bee. At least four or five of the proposed meetings should be these
old time spelling bees."
