Yes, that is so true. Spelling is very important. We rely so heavily on spell check and other technological features but developing the Phonetic rules, sight words and phonemic skills are extremely important, especially as a young learner!

It is, however, important for students to feel free to write without too much concern/worry for spelling mistakes. Overall, it seems to be a balance, where kids are careful when writing and trying to challenge themselves to use the skills that they are developing yet to express themselves freely.

That's great that you won the spelling bee so many times!
