Important Tips

You may wish to adjust our list for your specific group of students. Feel free to use additional easier words, or insert some more difficult ones.

Be sure to use spelling bee words in sentences when quizzing students. This is especially important with homonyms. For instance, you're, should be clarified so it won't be confused with your:  You're the first person to arrive at the party.

Be sure to have students repeat the spelling words to you clearly before they begin to spell. Then you can be sure they know what word they are to spell.

We also have spelling bee lists for:
 3rd  grade
5th grade
6th grade
7th grade
8th grade
