Many of the words come from our list of second grade
A few words at the beginning are from our list of first grade spelling
words. The remaining words are more challenging. We've
arranged the words from easiest to most difficult.
1) Be sure to use our 2nd grade spelling bee words in sentences when quizzing students. This is important with every word, but especially as the words become hard.
2) Be sure students understand what word you are asking them to spell. At the beginning of the spelling bee, tell students they can ask to have a word repeated.
