Helping Students Prepare for a Spelling Bee
Helping students prepare for a spelling bee is an exercise in purpose, dedication, and tenacity. Being your student's partner in education will model a foundation built for a lifelong love of language, a buzz for achievement, and the confidence to "bee-lieve".
 
And remember - Keep it fun! Find the joy in spelling.
 
Not sure how to guide your students? Helping prepare for a spelling bee can be as easy as 1, 2, 3... or A, B, C!
  1. Read. Read. Read. Reading helps move the practice along. Ready all the books and news articles within arm's reach!
  2. Practice, practice, practice. It is important that spelling is addressed every single day. there are countless online and readily available word lists.
  3. Study the rules. Knowing spelling rules like "i before e except after c" helps when learning words. And don't forget the "building blocks" of the English language! Prefixes and suffixes, and Greek and Latin root words come in handy when constructing language. They help to understand a word's meaning and spelling convention.
