Spelling Bee online workshops are offered in two levels: Novice and Intermediate. These sessions are designed as a parent / child workshop. The sessions are lengthy for some of the younger children and we recommend that at least one parent is present during the entire duration of the session. Parents can make the decision on which session to join, or they may choose to join both. Please note that there could be some things that are common between the Novice and Intermediate sessions. The spellers registered for Intermediate session should have attended the session for Novice and/or have had previous spelling bee experience.
