Are you a teacher looking for a word list to use in your next classroom competition? Or perhaps you're a parent or student trying to "study ahead" on some typical spelling bee words. Either way, this list should help!
We've compiled this list of 120 words that is great for 7th graders, or any students in the upper grades. It includes a few words that at the 5th and 6th grade level, but it quickly moves on to more difficult words.
Be sure to use the spelling bee word in a sentence when quizzing students. For instance, bizarre, should be clarified so it won't be confused with bazaar: The dog's behavior was so bizarre, the veterinarian knew it was gravely ill.
Our Spelling Bee Toolbox eBooks are comprehensive resources for anyone who wants a simple way to put together a classroom, all-school or multi-school spelling bee.
Each eBook contains 600 words and sentences, rules, award certificates, organizational tips, student helps and much more. We also offer additional sets of 600 spelling bee words and sentences for those who don't need all the other bells and whistles. Also, see our 100 Difficult Words for Spelling Bees that includes definitions, pronunciations, sentences and more.
The official dictionary used by the Scripps National Spelling Bee is Webster's Webster's Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged (Book & CD-ROM)Third New International Dictionary of the English Language.
