Buzz...time for Spelling Bee fun
We're excited to team up with Kindle, the presenting sponsor for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, to talk about one of our favorite competitions: The Scripps National Spelling Bee. Kindle and Scripps National Spelling Bee share in the belief that reading is fundamentally important to a child’s lifelong achievement. The idea is simple - before students were great spellers, they were great readers and early reading leads to a better vocabulary and word comprehension.
The Scripps National Spelling bee Championship finals will be broadcasted live on ESPN on Thursday, May 26 from 8p.m. to 10 p.m. ET. Don't miss out on the fun. It might inspire YOUR kids to get on stage and spell. Find out more here spellingbee.com
To celebrate, Amazon is offering the Kindle for Kids bundle for $10 off the starting price of $99.99 (sale price will be $89.99) starting on May 23. The Kindle for Kids bundle comes with the latest Kindle without sponsored screensavers, a kid-friendly cover and a 2-year warranty provided by SquareTrade.
Kindle is committed to celebrating reading. They have been sparking new Bee initiatives throughout the school year, and will continue through the summer. This year the Scripps National Spelling Bee utilized Kindle technology by integrating it into the creation of word list study materials created for thousands of schools. Schools used the Kindle Vocabulary Builder to prep for local Bees.
Join us for a twitter chat to learn more about the "Bee" and Kindle e-readers. And of course, we've got amazing prizes!
