At the spelling bee I had a lot of fun. I was number 122. There was 212 people competing so I had to wait awhile for my first word. My first word was the word "brawl." I spelled it right. I was happy. After that I found out that the speaker goes to my church. That was pretty cool. My next word was "relevant." I spelled that right too. After round two we got cookies and punch. Then we went back to the spelling bee. My next word was "ductile." I thought I would get it wrong but I got it right. Then I got "alliteration." I spelled that right too. My next word I got wrong. It was the word "corps." It sounds like the word core so that is how I spelled it. I wasn't mad. I got 25th place out of 212. It was against fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders and I am only in fifth. My teacher said that was good. We left early so we didn't find out who won. I had a lot of fun and that is all that matters.
