WORDS TO STUDY

For any spelling bee:

Read How to Study for a Spelling Bee by national finals pronouncer, Dr. Jacques Bailly.

 

 

For a classroom, grade level or school-wide spelling bee:

Step One: Learn the 100 study words for your grade level. Ask your teacher or school spelling bee coordinator for the study words. Your teacher obtains the study words by logging into a password-protected area of spellingbee.com available exclusively for teachers. It is there that your teacher prints out "Study Words for (Your Grade Level)."

 

Step Two: Ask your teacher for the study words for all other grade levels. Study words are available for grades 1–8.

 

Step Three: Get a head start on district, county, city, regional or state competition. Learn the words in Spell It! Also, expand your spelling skill set by playing the fun word games at Merriam-Webster's Word Central.
