World Math Day is done, but World Spelling Day is here! This is this event’s first year and next year the World Education Games is hosting a World Science Day as well. Scheduled to begin on March 3rd, we can actually access the site starting today, March 2nd because like World Math Day it is available to participants for as long as it’s March 3rd somewhere in the world.
We were all set to begin today in class, but we’ve run into a little problem. Schools were closed today in our district! Why? Well, it was a combination of snow, rain, and high winds that threatened to cause multiple power outages, flooding, and overall poor conditions on the roads that impacted safe transportation to and from school. By early this morning, some schools were already without power, areas higher up with snow didn’t have roads plowed, and lower areas had roads that were a slippery slushy mess. Add hurricane force winds into this and it was a very stormy site.
Lucky for us, the World Spelling Day site can be accessed from home, so I’m really hoping the Ripplers are getting a bit of a head start on their games. We’re still shooting for a minimum of 60 games and ideally 100 to be completed before midnight tomorrow night.
Happy Spelling everyone!
