Carrie Bivens | 29 comments Quarter 1 Spell Challenge: All about TV and Movies
Duration: January 1 – March 31, 2013

There are tons of television shows out there. Which television show is your all-time favorite? Who are your favorite actors and actresses? What is your favorite movie? This challenge will combine them. They can be recent or hollywood classics!

*Choose your favorite television show/actor/actress/movie
*You will spell out one, two, three, or all four of these choices over a 3 month period.
*You can spell word with titles (excluding A, And, or The) or the first letter of first/last name of the author. Also, you can use the first or last name of the main character of the book you are reading.
*Re-reads are allowed, but you have to reread the book…no skimming!
*Repost your completed list to get a virtual pat on the back.
*Have fun with this challenge!

I am choosing my favorite television show, so 13 books for Quarter 1.
