  • Can you spell AVERAGE

    This was an average episode. Nothing special. They had a spelling Bee which Stephanie missing on her first try. Instead of taking it with grace she looses control and starts a tantrum. Then when the winner comes to congratulate her she challanges him to a duel of words. Which she looses again. Nothing special about this episode.
  • Don't throw a tantrum if you spell a word wrong in a Spelling Bee because not everybody is perfect. Everybody loses sometimes!

    Stephanie is one of the top spellers in her class and she is ready for the fourth grade spelling bee.She spells a word wrong and she was told that it was incorrect. Stephanie gets upset and she throws a fit. Davy comes to to her house to bring her ribbon and Stephanie challenges him for another spelling bee. Davy wins again and Stephanie gets even angrier until Danny tells her that even if she does not win, he is still proud of her. My older sister was in a spelling bee and she didn't win. I don't win all the time.moreless
