Confusing, too many storylines.

I've tried twice to finish this movie. Somehow I can't get through it. My kids and I were confused following all the competitors' stories. If we were to try again, I'd make a graphic organizer with all the spellers' names on it so we could stop and take notes. It jumped around and we couldn't keep up. I did like the history lesson about South Asian immigration. Not that it's inappropriate, but I think it's definitely better for older kids. My six year olds were quite disinterested, my 8 and 10 year olds were in fact watching, but it just didn't peak our interest enough.

Much more than Spellcheck

In this terrible time, many of us are staying home, Spelling the Dream is very lighthearted. So impressive to see the 9 year old girl who was one of the children followed in the movie, how she prepares for the bee and expands her vocabulary. Inspirational children!
